The Story

Calendula: Calendula officinalis (L.)

Why calendula? Also known as marigolds, calendula flowers are often used for culinary and cosmetic purposes. Calendula has a reputation of being an effective support for normal digestion as well as an ideal addition to a first aid kit for its restorative qualities on the skin.

This herb is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and grown without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Our experts here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally evaluate every herb through taste, touch, and smell to assure that you are receiving the best botanicals suitable for clinical use.

How to Use

Wellness Support: Calendula flower petals and leaves are cleansing, rejuvenating, and can be used in teas, tinctures, infusions, and ointments to support healthy digestion as well as healthy, revitalized skin.
