Calendula Petals

March 6, 2011

Calendula Petals from Egypt

The petals of Calendula Officinalis  are a beautiful addition to any cosmetic kitchen because of their bright, life-affirming colour and their beautiful rich green floral aroma (their fragrance is definately floral but it has a strong herbalness to it giving it a green rather than flowery heart).  Ancient apothecaries cite Calendula as a treatment for many conditions of  ill health  including wound healing, suppression of muscular cramps,  managing infection and repairing of  chapped skin.  However, we just love the fact that it makes our bath bags smell and look great!
