Pauline started making products to suit her own skin.
Infused with Nature products are beneficial for delicate or damaged skin and mature complexions. Natural ingredients such as calendula infused oil, carrot oil, cocoa butter and shea butter are used in order to moisturise and soothe the skin.
Calendula Ointment is very useful to have at the ready when grandchildren are visiting - great for nappy rash, cuts and grazes.
Infused with Nature are in the business of growing the medicinal herb calendula officinalis for inclusion in their high-quality natural soaps, ointments, creams and balms. Pauline makes everything from scratch and has developed her own recipes in an attempt to relieve the suffering of people with debilitating skin conditions.
Many satisfied customers report on how the products have relieved such skin conditions as:
- cold sores
- cracked heels
Read some of the testimonials of customers (including animals) who have found relief from using our products.
Owner of Infused with Nature, Pauline gets a lot of satisfaction from developing her recipes, knowing she is helping people to cope with debilitating skin problems. Pauline chose to grow and use Calendula because of its remarkable healing properties, it is reputed to have anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and antifungal properties, which promote the speedy healing of wounds.
"Calendula is one of the best herbs for the skin in my opinion. That is why I chose to grow and make Calendula-based products. The Calendula Ointment is our best seller and it's really satisfying receiving comments from people saying how much their skin has improved after using it."
"I grow the Calendula by growing seeds in trays and then planting them out in November. Flowers are ready for picking by the end of December/beginning of January. It's a very busy time, picking the Calendula, infusing them in oil. Then we strain the oil from the Calendula flowers, by this time the oil is infused with all the healing properties of the Calendula. This is all done with the help of my husband, Robert. When my mother-in-law used to stay with us, she took over weeding the garden - she was a remarkable 83 year old! Now it's down to Robert who does all the gardening.
"We then bottle the Calendula Infused Oil and I use it in my products. It's a lot of work but very satisfying when I receive wonderful comments from people who have skin problems and they say my products help ease their skin problems."
"I continue to pick the calendula flowers throughout the summer. The more I pick the flowers, the more flowers grow. I also dry a lot of the petals which I add to my Calendula Soap and Goats' Milk Soap. The soaps look gorgeous with the orange petals adding natural colour. I don't add any artificial colours or ingredients.
"I also host Garden Circles and groups. I give a guided tour of the garden and workshop, explaining how I grow the calendula and how I use the oil and petals in my products. Please contact me if you wish to visit.
