Calendula flower is a cheerful ornamental plant employed by many herbalists for its beneficial properties. It has been used topically, ceremonially, and as a dye and food plant for centuries. It is also commonly referred to as marigold or pot marigold. Calendula can be infused in oils and incorporated into lotions, creams, salves, and balms. The cheery flowers brighten herbal tea blends and make a tasty calendula tea infusion.
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. Consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
