dried calendula petals
The flower petals of the calendula plant, or marigold, have been used for medicinal purposes since at least the 12th century.
Can be used in bath bombs, soap, bath salts & scrubs.
Calendula is native to Mediterranean countries but is now grown as an ornamental plant throughout the world.
Calendula contains high amounts of flavonoids, plant-based antioxidants that protect the body against cell-damaging free radicals.
Researchers are not sure what active ingredients in calendula are responsible for its healing properties, but it appears to have anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial effects.
Our calendula petals however, are sold for their decorative use where they are a wonderful addition to pot pourri and make a colourful decorative finish to soaps and various dry toiletries.
They are a bright orange colour so would brighten up any product.Technical Documents
