Calendula (Marigold Petals)
Cut & Sifted
Calendula, also known as Marigold in honor of the Virgin Mary, is a Mediterranean native in the daisy, aster and sunflower family that is also grown as an ornamental.
The bright yellow flowers were once used as a coloring agent for textiles and food, most notably cheese. Today, calendula petals are added to tea blends, and tinctured or infused in oil for use in creams, lotions, salves, lip balms and other cosmetic items.
