What is Organic Calendula? (Calendula Officinalis)

Calendula is a perennial member of the aster family, although it is cultivated as an annual in colder climates. The plant is thought to be originally native to southern Europe, but is now distributed in temperate regions throughout the world. It is also a popular addition to kitchen herb gardens.

For thousands of years, calendula has been used as food and medicine and to produce a yellow dye to color leather, cloth and other textiles. Viking women were known to use calendula flowers to add golden highlights to their hair, a practice that continues to provide an alternative to chemical-based hair dye today.

Calendula also has a long history of use in skin care products. The petals, which contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds, including carotenoids such as lutein, are used to make nourishing skin oils, creams, lotions, facial serums and soaps.
