Indian weddings are a blaze of crazy color—crimsons, fuchsias, saffrons. Of all the eye-dazzling hues, though, marigold—also known as calendula—takes the cake. Garlands and bouquets of marigold flowers decorate traditional Indian nuptials, infusing them with irrepressible joy.
A fair-weather perennial, calendula lends its happy-go-lucky nature to gardens of all types. Garden Alchemy, our newest collection, captures its robust, sunshine-y spirit in Rosemary Sage.
So, what is calendula? It’s an annual plant with a spicy scent that thrives in almost any soil or container doused with plenty of sun. Popular in Europe, Western Asia and the United States, calendula is kin to daisies, chrysanthemums and ragweed. A profuse bloomer, its orange-yellow petals have been used in medicine since at least the 12th century.
As a botanical remedy, calendula oil benefits include the reduction of inflammation, swelling and fever, management of menstrual cycles and relief for sore throats. When applied topically, calendula creams, calendula salves and calendula tinctures are credited with stanching nosebleeds, minimizing varicose veins and soothing conjunctivitis, aka pink eye. High levels of carotenoids (vitamin A-like compounds) account for calendula’s healing properties.
To experience where perfumery meets botany in a lush, intoxicating sensory expression, let calendula brighten your way to Garden Alchemy. And get ready for the sensation of instant joy.
