Who would know that such a beautiful flower is such an amazing herb! Calendula (calendula officinalis) or Pot Marigold is one of the most popular herbs used to treating in skin problems.
Skin concerns often crop up during the blustery winter months, with dry skin, wind-burn, and other irritating rashes.
Calendula can be found in many commercial lotions and creams. It’s not just for healing your skin; you can use it in cooking as well! Calendula leaves have been known to be used for culinary purposes as well. They can be used to add flavor and color to salads, soups, breads and cheeses. I’ve even heard of it being used as a replacement for saffron.
