COMMON NAME      
Standardized: calendula     Other: marigold flower
, pot marigold

BOTANICAL NAME  
Calendula officinalis     
 
Plant Family: Asteraceae


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.

Dried Flowers
These lovingly - tended Botanicals are perfect for any craft projects like bath bombs, candles, soaps, salves, potpourri or as natural confetti.

All Dry flowers offered are food grade and suitable for culinary uses. You can use them in blends of teas, tinctures, infusions, to decorate cake, dessert as cocktail garnishes etc.

Confetti is sent to you in a re-sealable bag which if kept in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, will keep for months, although we generally advise you to buy dried flowers up to 8 months in advance to reduce the risk of color or scent fade.
