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."

I received my order today and couldn't believe the difference from another brand I bought through Amazon. I have to say I am new to herbs and being certified in aromatherapy had begun learning about the many benefits of infusing my own oils to make salves. My first batch I purchased I was so excited and not having anything to compare to thought wow these are cool and have them displayed in a huge glass jar on my counter. Well I opened the bag from here and wow what a difference! I mean the color is so vibrant and the smell is so smooth and fragrant in comparison. I cant wait to make my next batch of calendula infused oil! I also love reading the testimonies and love all the great tips and recipes! You have a lifetime customer and will be getting referrals from me! Thank you!

Awesome!

Shoshanna,

Thanks so much for including your birth story. People need to hear about birth the way God designed it to be!! My husband and I actually visited the No Greater Joy offices the first weekend in August, but missed you because you were oh so with baby : )

So we were eager to hear the news. Bradley Childbirth is fantastic- I'm a doula and I've heard many "natural childbirth" perspectives, but I love how the Bradley method really encourages women to focus in on what their body is doing- and to give in to this process.

I liken it to trusting God- even when there is much pain/pressure!

So, we're sorry we missed meeting you but rejoice over Penelope Jane's birth!

Blessings, The Montmenys
