Background Information on Calendula Oil
Calendula essential oil is native to Western Europe, Micronesia, the Mediterranean, and Southwestern Asia. Its name is a derivative of the Latin for little calendar or little clock. When people refer to calendula as the Marigold, this is in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
This plant is used as a medicinal herb and in culinary uses. The petals are edible and can be used in salads. Its color adds a bright touch to many dishes since it exudes a yellow dye. For this reason, calendula petals are used to color cheese. The ancient Romans used this plants in their ceremonies where they would refer to the plant as Mary’s Gold.
