Calendula and marigold flowers are one in the same, but don’t confuse them with the ornamental marigolds found in gardens. Double check your herbs by the scientific name before making your healing products or other natural supplies with dried calendula flowers. I found out about this ingredient when I was dealing with bad acne because it helps heal inflamed skin. Now I’m working with it in beauty products mostly and also a massage oil for cowboyfriend’s aching hands. Also whenever I’m feeling like a graying version of myself, as if my inner light is dimming, I draw a bath with some Calendula flowers to charge up my auric field.

Breakdown of Calendula:

Scientific Name: Calendula officinalis [aka: marigold, summer’s bride]

Magickal Stats: Elementally Fire, Ruled by the Suncalendula-1405379

Aides in Relieving Symptoms of:

  • Cuts, Wounds, Burns and Ailments of the Skin
  • Inflammation; eyelid, rectum, varicose veins, nosebleeds & hemorrhoids
  • Menstrual Cramps

Assists Spiritually With:

  • Attract Success
  • Flourish in Optimism and Vitality
  • Protection; draw light and banish negativity

How Does It Work?

Calendula is mostly applied topically to work as an antibacterial and antiviral which is why it works great for supporting tissue growth and healing in cuts, burns, acne and other wounds. It also works as an anti-inflammatory to help with proctitis, conjunctivitis, herpes, insect stings and even black eyes.

What Do I Do With It?

A liquid extract of the dried flowers can be applied topically to the affected area to help with any inflamed or wounded skin. Also take drops of the liquid extract to induce menstruation and relieve menstrual cramps, promote skin healing and inflammation. Add to an incense to attract success specifically in legal matters. Sprinkle the dried flowers into a bath to draw health and vitality into the auric field.

Since 2011 my time has been dedicated to the cannabis industry and the patients who need it. I have worked at 5 retail dispensaries -both medical and recreational- across three states -Northern & Southern CA, AZ, WA-, and love teaching people how to properly use the cannabis plant. My free time is spent reading metaphysical works, practicing yoga and learning more about herbs.

  1. They are easy to grow and lovely to look at – plus I eat the flowers and make them into hand cream. I’m going to try to do more with them now I’ve read your post. 😉
