Calendula Materia Medica


Calendula is widely considered a comforting balm for the heart and spirit. For the most part, it’s the calendula flowers which are used in herbal medicine, although occasionally the leaves are used as well. Folklore holds that calendula oil encourages psychic dreams.

In aromatherapy, calendula oil is used externally for skin conditions and wounds in much the same way calendula ointment and lotion is used in herbal medicine. Calendula oil, either an absolute produced by solvent extraction or a carbon dioxide extract, is a dark, orange-brown, strongly-scented, viscous liquid.
