- 2 teaspoons dried calendula flower petals
- 1 cup of boiling water
Place calendula petals in an infuser and pour 1 cup of boiled water over the petals. Allow the calendula to steep for 10–15 minutes. Then enjoy.
Calendula petals picked later in the year may be bitter; if so, sweeten with honey. Calendula can be infused with other herbs for added benefits.
This tea is said to promote healthier skin; relieve sore throats; reduce fevers; detoxify, prevent, or relieve stomach problems; ease menstrual cramps and menopausal hot flashes.
N.B. Calendula is commonly called Pot Marigold, but do not confuse the many other varieties of marigolds (tagetes) for calendula!
