Calendula is a key ingredient in Dr Jackson’s 03 Everyday Oil.
Native to southern Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean, Calendula officinalis is a plant from the sunflower family (Asteraceae), also known as marigold or pot marigold. The plant is now grown globally as it tolerates many growing conditions and has adapted to different climates around the world.
The calendula flower has been used in Mediterranean countries since at least the 12th century. In some of the earliest medical writings, the plant appears recommended for treating problems of the digestive tract.Calendula was also used to treat some skin conditions - the flowers were applied to cuts and wounds to stop bleeding, prevent infection and speed healing.
In traditional medicine, pot marigold petals have been made into various ointments and extracts, and used for several ailments, including fever, muscle spasms, treating sore throat and mouth, menstrual cramps and stomach ulcers. It has also been used as a culinary plant and has remained a garden favourite for centuries.
Historically, it has been a very important plant in medicine throughout many cultures. It’s been written that marigold flowers were used at battlefields on open wounds due to the antihemorrhagic and antiseptic properties – the flowers when dressing wounds, would help to promote healing and prevent infection.
It is nowadays a well-known first-aid natural remedy, especially as an ointment for wounds, injuries, burns and bruises due to its known anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, calming and skin soothing properties.
Due to these anti-inflammatory and calming properties, calendula oil or flower extract, are often found in natural skincare products. The plant’s benefits in soothing and restoring problem skin are numerous and backed by scientific research and case studies.

Magical Holy Grail Miracle Oil. Seriously.
“Yes. “Magical”, “holy grail”, and “miracle" are probably the three most commonly used phrases in the flourishing literary genre of skincare reviews, but occasionally none other will do. This outwardly unremarkable little bottle contains riches that my skin could so far only dream of, and which it now thanks me daily for receiving. The scent, too, is utterly divine. Two weeks, and my acne has cleared up almost completely, including the pesky little bumps along my jaw; any hyperpigmentation there once was, is no longer to be guessed at. Seriously. I can barely believe it myself. Though it may not work equally well for all, I will wholeheartedly recommend the Everyday Oil to anyone with skin to treat and ears to listen.” - Rory
