“Karuna Essentials started with curiosity and a creative idea.  Each day when I would enter our poly tunnel the Happy Sunshine orange calendula flowers growing there would uplift my spirit. I remembered using calendula ointment on my own children and those in the Kindergarten in which I was involved with many years ago, for cuts, bangs and bumps, for life’s little hurts. The healing was swift. So, could I make my own?

I began experimenting and was super happy with the results.  I then made a small batch to bring to a local car boot sale. Interest was great from the local community and I sold all I had there on the day. After a few more events. People started to get in touch with me telling me how they loved the product and how it had worked on, or helped improve, skin issues of their own and their family members. I then shared it with family and friends who came back with more positive comments and feedback.

And with that I got to work. Beautiful, simple, natural ingredients mixed and blended with some know how, a little magic and good vibration. I was very excited to produce and promote an Irish made, Natural, Calendula product.

All my life, I have found solace in nature and natural materials. From as early as a young child, through later childhood and beyond I loved to wander through fields and hills picking flowers. When in nature I was, and am, always in awe of the beauty and divine perfection existing in every flower, plant and tree. There are unique properties attached to specific plants which we can harness benefit from. Calendula is one such flower.”
