1. Calendula🏵️for Soothing and Healing
Calendula, a botanical extract from the marigold flower, is a natural wound healer to calm skin. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and healing properties, making it ideal for soothing irritated or inflamed skin. Calendula-infused creams or oils can help calm conditions like eczema, dermatitis, and sunburns, promoting faster healing and relieving discomfort.

2. Rose 🌹 for Hydration and Radiance
Rose is renowned for its hydrating and toning effects on the skin, in fact Ancient Greeks and Romans already perfumed their baths with fresh rose petals. Its antioxidants help to strengthen skin cells and work to neutralize free radicals, which can provide anti-aging benefits. This flower is great for all types of skin, although it is especially good for dry skin because of its moisturizing properties.
Rosewater (created by distilling rose petals with steam) can provide intense hydration, helping to plump the skin and restore its natural radiance. It's also known to have a calming scent, which can help reduce stress and promote relaxation.
The Rose Water from CASWELL-MASSEY works as a mild astringent, it helps tighten pores and tone your skin after washing. Just spray some over a hot bath for a scented soak, or above your shower head to mist down around you. You can also spritz on bed linens and lingerie to freshen. However you use it, the light scent of roses will delight you and infuse daily rituals with a calming, romantic aura.
3. Lavender 💜 For Relaxation and Acne-Prone Skin

Additionally, the calming aroma of lavender promotes relaxation and can help relieve stress.

4. Lotus🌸for Shooting and Restoring Skin
Lotus flower contains "Kaempferol," a strong antioxidant that protects your skin from damage caused by free radicals.This antioxidant acts as a skin conditioner and helps balancing your skin.
The use of lotus extract-infused products on a regular basis cleanses the skin. It can also help with acne because of its antibacterial properties, reducing the heat generated on the skin in acne thanks to its cooling effect.
The Coriander, Lotus & Cucumber hand&body wash from Antica Farmacista is enhanced with natural ingredients intended to target skin that is oftentimes dry and stripped of essential oils. Its scent is built on the aquatic notes of crisp cucumber, aloe and the royal Lotus Flower. The perfect formula to get clean and beautifully scented hands.
5. Hibiscus 🌺 for Brightening and Anti-Aging
This flower has many benefits for skin (that is so that it’s usually referred to as “nature’s botox”), with natural occurring AHAs, it promotes gentle exfoliation, stimulates cell turnover and improves the elasticity of the skin.
So, using skincare products with hibiscus extract can help brighten the complexion and promote a more youthful-looking skin.

6. Arnica 💛 for Treating Pain, Bruising and Swelling
