May Apothecary Tip: Calendula

Spring is upon us, and it’s finally time to enjoy that sweet healing sun upon our faces.  However, some of you may not know that healing plants are growing up around your feet as well!  This time of year, you’ll see the magical Calendula start to spring up along the sidewalk with its sunny yellow or orange flower.

Known for soothing irritated skin and healing wounds, this wonder-herb is everything ‘anti’: anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-microbial, not to mention astringent.  Use it to heal wounds, cuts, scrapes, irritated skin, acne, or insect bites!

We’ve got Calendula in bulk here at the Molly Muriel store, or you’ll find it’s skin soothing and healing properties in the Sweet Seduction Lotion as well as our Pure Radiance Bath & Body Oil!
