Organic Calendula

Calendula is a lovely, versatile flower that can be enjoyed fresh or dried, steeped into teas, used in recipes, or crafted into creams, lotions and tinctures. The infusion is a slightly peppery, beautiful yellow colour often used in the culinary kitchen as 'faux' saffron. Calendula has strong health properties, which include antifungal and antimicrobial, as well as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant components. Add calendula to other teas to increase health benefits.
