The calendula flower is a well-known herb that has been used topically and as a dye for centuries. Calendula was also used in religious rituals throughout time.
These flowers are native to Southern Europe, Egypt and the Mediterranean region. They have a long and honorable history with many using these flowers for their beneficial properties. Specifically, calendula was used in many personal care applications and in soothing remedies and balms.
Calendula flowers are bright orange and yellow in color. They bloom on the “calends” of each month, or on the first day of each month of the Roman calendar. They are carefully dried at low temperatures in order to keep their bright color.
