Marigolds have been in full bloom at the LA Flower Market these past few weeks， which means they are also coming at a great price. About a month ago， Grant and I spent Sunday afternoon enjoying a delicious breakfast at the new restaurant across from the Market –； Poppy Rose –； and then headed in to pick up a few bouquets for our home. I？hung them to dry？and？put the petals to use by making some wonderfully moisturizing soap (this California heat is killing us!).
Why I picked these ingredients： Marigolds (also known as Calendula) are known to help reduce inflammation and aid in treating eczema that can come from the dry winter air. Lemon has antiseptic benefits and shea butter and honey are both wonderfully moisturizing.accent pillow case baby canvas home decor
