Marigold Tincture - Calendulae officinalis Tincture
Single herbal tincture made with dried flower of Calendulae officinalis (marigold).
The marigold (Calendula officinalis) is a member of the composite family (Compositae or Asteraceae) and is often grown in ornamental gardens. This plant originally comes from Southern Europe.
It is an annual plant that usually bears orange, but sometimes yellow flowers. The marigold usually grows to a height of 30-45 cm and has blunt leaves. Its flowering period extends from May to November, while the fruits are often curved and boat-shaped.
Both fresh and dried flowers can be used in soups, and they also act as a natural coloring for cheese, butter and other foods. Historically, the petals were even used to imitate saffron.
