Fancy Mix Marigold Seeds (Calendula Officinalis)

RM 3.00
  • Members of the genus Calendula have daisy like flowers and come into bloom in the spring. Attracts butterflies and birds that feed on seed heads. Pot marigolds bloom most of the summer, but are intolerant of intense heat.
  • When looking for an herbal remedy to treat skin or wounds, think flower power -- or, more specifically, calendula. Its flowers, and occasionally its leaves, can be used to treat a variety of afflictions in different ways.
  • Calendula has a long history of use as a wound-healing and skin-soothing botanical. This lovely marigoldlike flower (although called pot marigold, it is not a true marigold) is considered a vulnerary agent, a substance that promotes healing. Calendula also has anti-inflammatory and weak antimicrobial activity. It is most often used topically for lacerations, abrasions, and skin infections; less commonly, it is used internally to heal inflamed and infected mucous membranes.
