Excerpts from The Green Pharmacy Herbal Handbook

With those bright, yellow orange flowers, you might mistake Calendula Flowers for any other marigold. But calendula is actually an entirely different plant. It's native to northern Africa and the south-central portion of Europe, but it can be grown elsewhere, including indoors. If you can't visually distinguish calendula flowers from marigold, you'll probably be more successful using your nose: regular garden marigolds give off a strong, unpleasant aroma (although some people like it); calendula flowers are comparatively milder.

Therapeutic uses for calendula flowers include burns, inflammation, mucositis, and pharyngitis.

Excerpts from Practical Herbalism

Calendula is a remedy long used throughout Europe and the Americas for wound healing and ulcer treatments. Culpeper speaks of the flowers, either fresh or dried, as being "much used in possets, broth, and drink as a comforter of the heart and spirits, and to expel any malignant or pestilential quality which might annoy them."

Just wanted to let you know that I am very pleased w/my herb order I received today...This is not my first order, and I have been happy each time. Your orders arrive so quickly. Today's order was very timely as a few of us are suffering the effects of a cold and I had ordered some Echinacea Purpurea tops... Of course, I made some tea up right away. Thank you.
