Marigold [Calendula] Flowers 500g (Bulk)

Dried Calendula Flowers. Bigger, Bulk Pack.

The pot marigold, Calendula Officinalis provides Calendula oil, which is often found in skin care ingredients for babies as it is such a gentle moisturiser. This bright orange flower is useful both internally and topically (on the skin). Steeping the dried flower in boiling water produces a tea which may help soothe the digestive system as well as sore throats. You can use a fresh infusion topically to soothe tired eyes, to clean cuts and as a face wash.

Ground Calendula petals are sometimes used instead of Saffron. The powder can be added directly to your food, although it will lend your dish a different flavour to Saffron, so experiment first. You can also pre-soak the strands in milk (much the same as you would for Saffron) and add the coloured liquid to the pan/dish. Fresh Marigold leaves are often added to salads, but pre-soaking these dried leaves may work - we have not yet tried this! The Marigold petals are ideal as a natural cupcake/dessert decoration and indeed natural colourant that is child friendly.

For a soothing infusion use 1 or 2 teaspoons of petals per cup of hot water. Try blending along with Nettle Leaves, Chamomile Flowers and a few Lavender flowers (not entire flower heads!).

  • Soothing tea, which is easily blended with other loose herbs.
  • Acts as a natural orange/yellow food colouring.
  • Pretty, edible decoration for biscuits and other baked goodies.
