I finally have a small area in my front yard that has enough sun to grow calendulas! This cheery flower has SO many medicinal qualities. It is well-known as having anti-inflammatory properties and helps heal damaged and inflamed skin. Some of the other benefits include having anti-septic capabilities, assists in shrinking varicose and spider veins, assists in healing oral lesions & sore throats and helps heal ulcers. The petals are edible and can dress up any salad.
Shine on calendula, shine on!
