Herb Garden Soap >> Creams & Body Butters

Creams & Body Butters


Calendula grows in several sunny places in my gardens, so in the early morning, I lift my herb basket down from its hook, get my garden scissors and head down the path to the first clump. Snipping the flowers every day encourages more and more buds, so I fill my basket regularly. The new buds swell and bloom almost as soon as I've collected the full flowers!

This picture was taken in early November, and the last of the bumblebees was having a nice visit in the sepals, posing for an unexpected expose of late season nectaring.

It is important to honor all of the creatures of the earth, and I am always keenly aware that my garden is home to many insects without whom, it would not flourish as it does. I consider this little bee as much a member of our little community as the bungling two-leggeds who try to bring some easy order to it all.

Calendula, also known as Pot Marigold, or Calendula officinalis, is not the same flower we in New England call "marigold". Our "marigold" is Tagetes petula, also called French Marigold.

Calendula (Calendula officinalis)is very healing for irritated, inflamed skin. It is used in ointments for abrasions, burns, minor cuts. French Marigold (Tagetes petula) has similar properties, but also boasts anti-fungal properties, so we added it to our Nighty Night Foot Cream in its essential oil form and as a tea.
