Organic Dried Calendula, Calendula officinalis
We are a small-scale producer of culinary and medicinal herbs. All herbs are grown on our certified organic farm in British Columbia and are hand harvested, dried, and packaged on site in a dedicated approved facility. Our products are picked at their peak and dried in small batches to retain shape and flavour.
Our farm also uses regenerative farming practices, such as using animals (goats, sheep, pigs) to maintain and prepare new beds. This ensures that not only are we organic, but no heavy machinery ever touches the soil, and we maintain a healthy soil ecosystem.
"Calendula used as an oil, in a salve or as a poultice, will effectively treat burns, stop bleeding, soothe pain of injuries and irritation, and promote the healing of wounds, burns and tissues. An infusion is taken internally for fevers, ulcers, menstrual cramps and eruptive skin diseases such as measles... Calendula should not be taken internally during pregnancy." (Tierra, Michael. the way of Herbs. Pocket Books, 1998)
“[Calendula] is a powerful vulnerary, healing the body by promoting cell repair, and acts as an antiseptic, keeping infection from occurring in injuries. Calendula is most often used externally for bruises, burns, sores, and skin ulcers. It is also used internally for fevers and for gastrointestinal problems such as ulcers, cramps, indigestion, and diarrhea. And, or course you see it used in many cosmetics for its skin-soothing effects." (Gladstar, Rosemary. Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health. Storey Publishing, 2008)
