Calendula (calendula officinalis)

Puressential Aromatherapy

I planted some calendula seeds late last Fall and one of them is blooming! Calendula is not just a pretty flower, but also cold hardy.

This gorgeous little flower, gracing so many home gardens has been used for centuries topically to speed up tissue healing after injuries, bruises, sprains and strains. It is a wonderful remedy for skin issues as well as gastrointestinal inflammation.
