Calendula (Calendula officinalis) is often commonly called pot marigold or English marigold. The name refers to about 20 species of edible flowers from the daisy family. Only the common deep orange-flowered variety of calendula is considered to have medicinal value.

Note that the calendula species are not the same as the flowers of the genus, Tagetes, also commonly known as marigolds and often grown in vegetable gardens.

Calendula is a culinary, medicinal, and sacred herb, often used in rituals and ceremonies from around the world.

It is most often associated with skin care, but it has many other important and effective healing attributes from treating a variety of women’s health issues to calming nerves and supporting sleep.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the herb is known, among its other benefits, to help Move and Tonify Blood, Cleanse the Liver, and Calm the Heart. In the West, it is recognized for its antimicrobial, antiseptic, and antispasmodic properties.
