Collection: Cornish Calendula from Michaelstow Barn Cornwall

At Michaelstow Barn they also grow the marigold Calendula Officinalis a popular plant they grow from seed each year. It is said to bloom on the ‘calends’ (the first day) of every month, hence it’s botanical name. The petals can be used in many ways, sprinkling on your salad, an alternative to saffron, oh yes, and the bees love them!

They harvest their calendula flowers in the summer. They are then immersed in a good quality oil such as almond oil, grapeseed or organic extra virgin olive oil and left on a sunny windowsill for several weeks. The oil absorbs many of the plant’s amazing qualities, which include antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, then the plant material is strained out and put on the compost. We then use the oil in our natural balms, lotions, soaps and shampoo.

The range is all SLS and Palm Oil free
