Calendula [Pot Marigold: not a true Marigold plant] is a lovely full headed flower used in salves, soap, lotions, creams, mouthwashes [gum and tooth infections] and teas [help treat bladder infections and ulcers of the stomach]. The leaves are also used for it’s medicinal properties in helping heal wounds and a skin soothing botanical. 🙂 It’s also great to treat those with chapped lips. ❤
I’ll be using the Calendula flowers in future salads, egg dishes, soups and stews. The dried petal form will be used in coloring-up tea cake loaves and Cinnamon/oat bread. 🙂
Germination of seeds to emerging takes five to fifteen days.
*Full sun lover. ❤
