    Calendula are annuals or perennials that have waxy, smooth, or glandular stems. The simple leaves can be somewhat toothed and are borne alternately along the stems. The leaves of some species are sessile (lacking a leaf stalk) and may have clasping leaf bases. The composite flower heads, borne singly, consist of yellow or orange ray flowers and central disk flowers. The fruit is a curved achene.


    Calendula, (genus Calendula), is a small genus of 15–20 species of herbaceous plants (family Asteraceae) found in temperate regions of Eurasia as well as North Africa. The pot marigold is grown especially for ornamental purposes and is commonly found in herbal products and cosmetics. The petal-like ray flowers are edible and are likewise used in salads, tinctures and ointments.

    How does it work?

    Calendula flower is used to prevent muscle spasms, start menstrual periods, and reduce fever. It is also used for treating sore throat and mouth, menstrual cramps, cancer, and stomach and duodenal ulcers.

    Calendula is applied to the skin to reduce pain and swelling (inflammation) and to treat poorly healing wounds and leg ulcers. It is also applied to the skin (used topically) for nosebleeds, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, inflammation of the rectum (proctitis), and inflammation of the lining of the eyelid (conjunctivitis).

    Don’t confuse calendula with ornamental marigolds of the Tagetes genus, which are commonly grown in vegetable gardens.
