Ha, you newbies? We're all newbies on a site like this. It just serves to show us all how little we know and how much more we want to know. My wish list reaches to the end of our rd and back!
The calendula (marigold) cream, I saw on some tv prog. It involved putting all the petals, crushed up, into an oil. I think they use sunflower, but I thought I might try Almond. Put in a container for a period of time that I can't remember (just as I can't remember the prog!) and shake it a couple of times a day. Then decant and use the oil, either alone, or made into cream with an emulsifier that might possibly have been glycerine?.
