Aloe vera has a great reputation for helping to repair damaged skin and it can be found in a lot of skincare and other commercial health products. Its benefits lie in the gel of the inner leaf, which has been used for centuries to treat wounds and other inflamed areas of the skin. Aloe vera gel reduces inflammation and itching while promoting quick wound healing. It is commonly used in topical after-sun treatments to soothe and help reduce the redness, as the key ingredient in wellness beverages, or of course in natural skincare products.
Chamomile really is one of nature’s miracles. It has an incredible range of health benefits, with our top picks being the impact it has on promoting restful sleep and helping create a beautiful complexion. Alpha-bisabolol is a compound found in chamomile that accelerates the regeneration of your skin while also exerting anti-inflammatory properties. Chamomile can be applied topically in your natural beauty routine or if you’re like us and love love looove tea, a cuppa chamomile a day will work well as a natural skin healer.
Calendula, also known as marigold, is a strong anti-inflammatory that promotes skin regeneration and inhibits the growth of nasty bacteria. It can act as an astringent, antibacterial and emollient, which basically means it will keep your skin supple and smooth. Yes please! Calendula is a key ingredient in the Linden Leaves Essential Facial Moisturiser that is found nestled within the March Delight Box. This beautiful, light moisturising cream is super helpful for treating skin blemishes and enhancing your skin’s natural cycle of recovery from inflammation. It has been designed to improve skin elasticity and to naturally moisturise and balance. We use this moisturiser daily and see beautiful results from it!
Comfrey is another lovely ingredient found in the Linden Leaves Essential Facial Moisturiser, another lovely herb that promotes new skin cell growth.
