BOTANICAL NAME  
Calendula officinalis

OVERVIEW     
Marigold Flower 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 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".


HERBAL ACTIONS      
Antispasmodic, astringent, cholagogue, diaphorhetic, vulnerary, lymphatic, emmenagogue, cholagogue, hepatic


USES AND PREPARATIONS  
Dried flower as a tea, tincture, or infused oil. Marigold is also used as ingredients in soaps, bath bombs and potpourri  


CONSTITUENTS    
Triterpene glycosides and aglycones, carotenoids, essential oils, resin, sterols, flavanoids, calendic acid


PRECAUTIONS     
Specific: Persons with allergies to other members of the Asteraceae family (such as feverfew, chamomile, or Echinacea species) should exercise caution with calendula, as allergic cross-reactivity to Asteraceae plants is common.

General: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

Lovely whole flowers

These calendula flowers are in very good condition; lovely complete flowers. Macerating in safflower oil right now to make my own Calendula Oil. These flowers would also be a wonderful addition to a collage; fun activity for kids.

Valerian Root

Great - bought primarily to add to homemade cat toys in place of catnip, the cats are definitely keen on it so far. 25g turned out to be more than I was expecting - shown here in a 190ml / 8oz jar, with tealight for scale. There was quite a lot of powder in the packet where I'm guessing it got battered during shipping, but that's fine for my purposes. Hopefully going to try it in tea soon as well, it seems like excellent quality.
