Calendula officinalis is an annual herb bearing an edible orange or yellow daisy-like flower. It is also commonly referred to as marigold or pot marigold. Calendula flowers can be infused in oils and incorporated into lotions, creams, and balms. They brighten herbal tea blends and make a tasty calendula tea infusion.

Calendula has been used for centuries to colour and spice foods (most commonly soups and butter) as well as a dye to colour textiles and hair. It is also well known as a soothing first aid remedy, used topically on burns, cuts and skin irritations, and used as an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial tea, that is said to help treat urinary tract infections.

The dried flower petals can be used on their own as a soothing herbal tea or in tea blends, as an herbal compress, stored in vinegar or alcohol to create a tinctures, infused in oil which has many cosmetic uses, or mixed into homemade soaps, lotions, and salves.

Drinking calendula tea is reported to help heal gastric ulcers, congested lymph nodes and sore throat. It can potentially help break a fever by causing a sweat. Dosage is no more than 2 to 3 cups per day. (Not for pregnant women since it can stimulate menstruation. 

Other common uses: 

  • Use as a gargle for sore throat.
  • Use as a mouth rinse to help relieve blisters, inflamed gums, or thrush.
  • Wash your face with calendula tea nightly, if prone to acne and breakouts.
  • Pour some in a foot bath, for fungal conditions such as athlete’s foot.
  • Add some to your regular bath to help soothe and heal inflamed skin or rashes.
  • Use as a hair rinse, after shampooing, to alleviate itchy scalp conditions.
  • Pour into a small spray bottle to make a disinfecting wound spray.

Note: People with allergies to other members of the Asteraceae family (ie. feverfew, chamomile, or echinacea) should exercise caution with calendula, as allergic cross-reactivity to Asteraceae plants is common. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
