Calendula (Calendula oficinales)

Calming flower to support relaxation and skin health

Calendula (aka Marigold) is a New World plant related to the daisy. It has brightly colored flowers in hues of orange, yellow and red. In the days before modern medicine, it was common practice to administer calendula to cleanse wounds and promote healing after surgery. It was found very useful on battlefields during the American Civil War.

The flowers are believed to contain anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial properties. Modern herbalists consider it a remarkably helpful and gentle herb for supporting skin health.*
