Tagetes Essential Oil
Antifungal, cleansing and soothing. Sometimes known as African or Mexican marigold, Tagetes Essential Oil has entirely different therapeutic properties to true marigold (Calendula officinalis) and should never be considered the same. Distilled from the flowers, this essential oil has a distinct sweet, herbaceous fragrance with fruity overtones which are extremely useful for adding fruity notes to essential oil blends.
Tagetes Essential Oil has a powerful antifungal and antibacterial oil action making it highly effective in caring for the feet. When added to carrier lotion base its therapeutic benefits are highly recommended for the treatment of calluses and corns etc. Tagetes oil is a powerful one that should be used in a low concentration on areas other than the feet.
Please Note: Tagetes oil is phototoxic, so avoid exposure to UV light after use.
