7 amazing Earth to Body products with calendula
You may know calendula as marigold, the ‘herb’ of the sun. The Romans apparently named calendula in the 12th century observing that the flower bloomed on the first day of each month (calends). This lovely yellow/orange blossom was a symbol of happiness and used regularly in cooking and healing medicines. Full of antioxidants, this flower contains the miracle anti-inflammatory, antibacterial healing properties we so desire.
