We put calendula a.k.a marigold flowers into our sweet citrus soap. “Ancient Egyptians valued it as a rejuvenating herb. Hindus used it to decorate temple altars and Persians and Greeks garnished and flavored food with its golden petals. …It is a soothing antiseptic and an excellent skin healer, especially for cracked skin and chapped lips. In the American Civil War, doctors on the battlefield employed the leaves to treat open wounds.” The Complete Book of Herbs. By Lesley Bremmes
