Calendula General Information
Calendula is a beautiful ornamental marigold that blooms month after month from early spring to first frost. It is believed that its name came from the Latin word “calend,” which means month. Calendula is a familiar garden plant with yellow or orange blooms that have a strong and distinctive scent. The plant likes the sun and will re-seed from year to year even in poor soil. The plant grows straight up to about two feet high. The lower leaves are broad and spatula shaped and the upper leaves may be oblong and are smooth at the edges. Blossoms may be single or double and are 1-4 inches across. This bushy herb blooms throughout the summer. In ancient times, a mixture made of Calendula blossoms in wine was used to soothe indigestion. This herb was also used internally for spasms, fevers, suppressed menstruation, and cancer. They used the petals in ointments for treating skin irritations, jaundice, sore eyes, and toothaches. During the Civil War, this flower was used to draw out infection and promote wound healing.

The Calendula should not be confused with the French Marigold (Tagetes patula), this one is grown in the garden for insect repellent and for other herbal remedies.

Magic and the Calendula
Marigolds picked at noon when the sun is at its hottest and strongest, will strengthen and comfort the heart. Garlands of Marigold strung on doorposts stop evil from entering the house and scattered under the bed they protect while you are sleeping and make your dreams come true. It is especially effective in discovering a thief who has robbed you. Calendula added to bath water helps with the respect and admiration of everyone you meet. If a girl touches the petals with her bare feet, she will understand the languages of the birds. Culpepper stated, “It is a herb of the Sun and under Leo and strengthens the heart exceedingly”.
