Calendula (Marigold) Petals

$10.00$40.00

Calendula or Pot Marigold petals are useful for burns, cuts, eczema, inflammation and other skin related problems. I really like that calendula petals don’t turn brown in soap, they retain their pretty yellow colour. You can use them whole or grind them, or even make a tea with them if you prefer. If you want to grind them, the coffee grinder won’t do it, I put them in water and used the hand blender to chop them before I added the lye. I like to add them to the lye water at about 1 tablespoon per pound for a yellow colour, but if you don’t soak them in the lye water and just add them (wet) at trace, the soap will stay mostly white and the petals will be yellow.
