We love growing Calendula every year. This lovely little yellow marigold is versatile in its use. It used to be called "poor man's saffron" and was used to enhance flavor and color in culinary dishes. You can add it to sauces, soups and stews.
It is and has been widely used to promote healing our skin. Traditionally used in lotions and creams may help with muscle spasms. May also help with bruising, scrapes, cuts and insect bites. You can infuse the flower petals into oil for a beautiful oil to freshen your skin. It is also said that it is antifungal and antiseptic and antiviral. I keep this in my medicine cabinet and my pantry.
