Jo from Earthbound Organics shows us how you can have your own apothecary by planting desired flowers such as chamomile and calendula on the borders of your woodlands. In this video Jo makes a skin cream using dried calendula flowers, beeswax and cold pressed oil.

Always love your videos! I loved seeing the whole process from harvesting to drying to infusing etc. It would have been great to see the consistency of this cream. How long can this last? Half a year? One year? What kind of benefits does this have? The rose water was added without heat, would that shorten the life of the cream? Thank you!

What about a preservative? Any skin care product which has water added must have a preservative added.

Do you have to have some sort of formal certification to sell oils and lotions made.

Always great to see new ways to use our wonderful and varied plants. Thanks. Are you going to follow up this video with more?

Yes, each product has to have a Cosmetic product safety report. All the ingredients have to have an SDS. All have to be approved by a chemist and then properly labelled to comply with all the cosmetic safety regulations. All the ingredients made here would have to be safety tested before being added to a product. This is really showing what you can do for home use only. It costs quite a bit to get all the correct legal bits in place to be able to bring a product to market. If you look at website "the soap kitchen", there is a section on cosmetic safety assessments. Plush Folly also run a course on the cosmetic regulations as well. And all the products have to have insurance for the safety assessments to be valid.

Agree, even if the product is kept in a fridge it will start to deteriorate after about 2 days, especially with plant matter in it. A product with water content should really have a preservative for safe use. Essential oils and grapefruit seed extract are often suggested but are not preservatives.

+Jean Points Thanks. It never ceases to amaze me how much red tape it takes to do anything. I'll definitely be giving some of these a go for myself though.
