About Calendula {Information, Recipes, DIY's} ~ Herbal Link Up


"The Common Marigold is familiar to everyone, with its pale-green leaves and golden orange flowers. It is said to be in bloom on the calends of every month, hence its Latin name, and one of the names by which it is known in Italy - fiore d'ogni mese - countenances this derivation... Old English authors called it Golds or Ruddes. It was, however, later associated with the Virgin Mary, and in the seventeenth century with Queen Mary."

  1. What a wonderful link party idea! I make a calendula salve, but alas, have not written about it. Maybe I can get it done before the end of the month! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  2. Hi Jes, this is a wonderful party link up. I am new at linking up to blog parties, I hope I am doing it right. I am 67 yrs. old and modern technology is a fast learning process for me but I love it. I am entering two posts. (That's all I have LOL). I hope to be planting more this yr. We still have snow on the ground where I live, in a way is a good thing, it gives me time to plan.
    Thanks you for sharing me. I return again and again to visit your great blog. xo

  3. I'm really enjoying your posts about calendula as I've never grown or used it. Looks like I've been missing out. I do have plans for it as soon as I can get some plants growing. I can't wait 'til our local herb farm opens.
    Have a great Wednesday!

  9. Oh JES, this is a fantastic link-up! Calendula happens to be one of my very favourite herbs and I am looking forward to trying a few recipes out once mine reach the harvesting stage...the plants are still quite small but hopefully they will grow nice and big!
    I've always wanted to try making soap and when I saw the recipe in Gifts from the Garden by Debora Roberston, I knew I had to grow some calendula in order to give the recipe a bash!
    And I will enjoy having a look at each post! :)
    Thank you for all your beautiful and informative posts...your blog is a beautiful blessings!
    Much love and blessings! Hope you have a wonderful week!
    Love,
    Kelly-Anne
