OVERVIEW      
Calendula petals is a well-known medicinal herb and uplifting ornamental garden plant that has been used therapeutically, ceremonially, and as a dye and food plant for centuries. Most commonly known as for its topical use as a tea or infused oil for wounds and skin trauma, the bright orange or yellow flower contains many important constituents and can be taken internally for a variety of ailments.
 

BOTANY      
Annual herb bearing the characteristic daisy-like flowers of other members of the Asteraceae family, having bright orange or yellow terminal flower heads and pale green leaves. Native to Southern Europe, Egypt, the Mediterranean, and in the region spanning the Canary Islands to Iran, calendula is now naturalized in much of the world and is commonly grown in gardens. A variety of other Asteraceace genera have been commonly called "marigold" including Tagetes erecta, T. minuta, T. lucida, Baileya multiradiata, and Dyssodia pappossa, yet they have different properties. However, a related wild species, C. arvense, may have similar therapeutic properties. Calendula petals is said to be in bloom on the "calends" of every month, hence the name. The "calends", or in Latin "kalendae" referred to the first days of each month of the Roman calendar and signified the start of the new moon cycle. And the common name derives from an association with the Virgin Mary as this flower, or the similar looking flower, Tagetes sp., was used in various religious festivals and referred to as "Mary's gold".

The calendula petals I bought were part of a collection. It was not the main reason why I bought the collection, but after receiving the box, I fell in love with the wonderful yellow petals and they have been a lovely addition to my handmade soap. I have bought a few products from DGStore and everything has arrived in excellent condition with bright hues.

I absolutely adore these petals - they arrived in excellent condition, and with no stems, leaves, or other plant parts mixed in. Just pure flower petals! The bright yellow-gold coloration is so cheerful, and the tea they make is fragrant and soothing, similar to chamomile. I would absolutely recommend this product!
