Calendula (Pot Marigold): Three Uses
by Teen A
Infusing Calendula Heads In Olive Oil
Today I harvested our calendula heads. I am soaking them in olive oil. There are three uses for these heads.
1. These are pretty to look at, thus they are a good decoration.
2. You can make face cream out of these beautiful smelling flowers.
3. Or both of the above!
We are going to use the olive oil soaked heads in our homemade face cream. We will infuse the oil for several weeks, strain out the flowers then use the oil in our lotion recipe. For now they look lovely in the kitchen.
