Calendula, also known as pot marigold, is an herb that is highly valued for its vibrant yellow and orange flowers, as well as its medicinal properties. In terms of taste notes, calendula flowers have a subtly spicy and peppery flavor. They offer a delicate and slightly bitter taste that is reminiscent of saffron, although milder in intensity. Furthermore, calendula petals can be infused into oils, vinegars, and teas to extract their flavors. Calendula is one of the main ingredients in our unique blends, Spring Equinox and Twilight!
