Calendula is a beautiful ornamental marigold that blooms month after month from early spring to first frost. It is believed to have been given its name from the Latin word “calend,” which means month. In ancient times, a mixture made of Calendula blossoms in wine was used to soothe indigestion. They used the petals in ointments for treating skin irritations, jaundice, sore eyes, and toothaches. During the Civil War, this flower was used to draw out infection and promote wound healing. Calendula has anti-inflammatory, astringent, antiseptic, antiviral, and antibacterial properties and helps boost the immune system.
