Long a favorite of herbalists, calendula is also one of our edible flowers. During the Middle Ages, it was used to treat headaches and heart ailments.
Also called “Pot Marigold”, it was an ingredient for puddings during the 16th and 17th century in Europe. Today, the flowers can be used to decorate cakes and salads. It is also currently one of the top herbs used for medicinal use, particularly in Europe. Flower petals are dried and used for teas. The medicinal qualities of this plant seem to indicate a strengthening of the immune system, and the preparations are used mostly for mouth and throat problems, such as sore throat. It is also helpful in encouraging healing of wounds.
