A member of the sunflower family, Calendula’s name derives from the Latin kalendae, meaning “first,” as it blooms with beginning of the summer and on the new moon. Native to Southern Europe, it now grows in North America, India, Australia, and Chile. Calendula also goes by the name “pot marigold,” and like all “Mary’s Gold” flowers, was used to adorn statues of the Virgin Mary. Calendula was first cultivated in Germany by the mystic St. Hildegard von Bingen, famed for healing people with herbalism and music. We appreciate calendula for its powerful effects on our skin. Its qualities help regenerate tissue, heal wounds and rashes, and is anti-fungal and antibacterial. Calendula also supports the ecosystem of yoni tissue, and can improve menstruation and relieve cramps.
