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."

Your dvd is so much fun...my kids love it too! We all were so excited to find plantain in our backyard and they have been showing daddy and all their friends what it is and how to use it. ~Debbie H
