Calendula is an annual herb with edible bright orange daisy-like flowers. It is commonly found in gardens worldwide. Calendula can be infused in oils and is used as a primary ingredient in creams, lotions and topical balms. It is also used as an ingredient in herbal tea and as a natural food dye.
We harvest our calendula flowers by hand, in the warmest part of the day when the morning dew has evaporated. The flowers are handled delicately, and dried in small batches at low temperature to maintain their vibrant colour and resins.
