A luminescent golden flower, calendula is an edible marigold that exudes a medicinal resin. Topically, these resins are soothing, hydrating and restorative to the skin. The flowers are an ingredient in many skincare products, and have traditionally been used to help heal small wounds, scrapes and burns! Internally, these resins mirror their soothing effects onto the lining of the digestive tract — gently anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and hydrating.
