Calendula flowers are bright orange and yellow flowers which can be used to help heal multiple skin ailments and benefit your body. They are very commonly used to create infused Calendula oil which can be used directly on wounds or abrasions or put in a balm recipe to help heal your skin.
These flowers 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.
In Medieval Europe, calendula was often used to dye foods such as butters and soups. It was also used to dye hair and fabrics.
In traditional Chinese Medicine and Native American cultures, it has been widely used to improve blood circulation as well as assist in calming an upset stomach.
