Calendula, also known as Calendula Officinalis, originated in Europe. In medieval times, Calendula was regarded as a magickal herb as well as a medicinal and culinary herb. It has been used in the past to produce dyes, flavor food, heal wounds, and even help celebrate the rebirth of the sun god at the winter solstice. In spell work, garlands of Calendula can be used as a protective charm. The blossoms can be used for protection against nightmares. Calendula can be scattered under your pillow to give you prophetic dreams, under your bed to protect yourself from robbers and thieves, or carried in your pocket when facing legal matters to encourage a positive outcome. Cast calendula into the fire on the summer solstice to illuminate your spiritual journey. Dried petals can be strewn to consecrate an area or burned in consecration incense. Infuse Calendula into olive, almond or sunflower oil to create a consecration oil that can be used to add positive intent to your magickal practice or in a salve or cream to promote healing.
Calendula should be kept in a sealed container away from direct sunlight, heat, and moisture.
