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."

Is calendula safe to take during pregnancy?

    Hello, Calendula is safe to use externally is nearly all cases. However for internal use I would recommend that you ask your midwife or doctor for their opinion since they know you and your baby better than anyone else. Thanks!

Hello!!!!

First of all, I just wanted to thank you for sending my order so fast!!! I did purchase the Herbs Made Simple DVD from the No Greater Joy website which, is how I found out about this website. I can’t wait for my Dr. Cinnamon Tea & Rise & Shine Tea that I ordered!!

I’ve started watching the video and I was SO surprised about the garlic poultice!!! I actually said out loud in my house, “You mean to tell me that I have a natural decongestant in my house that has more uses than spaghetti sauce & cooking?! And all I need is garlic cloves, cheese cloth, & hot water?!” Yep, made me want to stomp my foot when I realized how much money I have wasted purchasing cold medications.

I really appreciate this because my son is 3 and a lot of the over the counter medications are not made for someone his age & weight. I would rather give him something that will not harm him, but will help him at the same time.

THANK YOU Shoshanna!!!! You, your mother and your family have truly been blessed with some precious gifts and I thank you for sharing them with us!!
