Calendula, commonly known as "marigold", is a native of Europe and was named by the Romans because the plant blooms on the first day "calends" of every month.
Calendula was well known to early herbalists as a garden-flower and for its culinary and herbal uses. According to Stevens, a 17th Century European Herbalist, Calendula petals were once used so extensively in the Netherlands that barrels full of dried petals could be found in many grocer's and spice seller's shops.

- Be sure to relax! Some of the most enjoyable aspects of tea are the calmness and ritual that surround it.
- This is a delicate herb and is more potent when exposed to high temperatures for a short period of time. So that your tea has its maximum medicinal properties and flavor, be sure that your water is at a rolling boil when you pour it over your teabags.
- If you desire a medicinal tea, be sure to use one tea bag per cup of boiling water, cover and steep for 7-12 minutes. This is known as the infusion method.
- If you desire a pleasure tea or quick brew, use one teabag per cup of hot water. Pour water over teabags, cover, and let steep 3 to 5 minutes to taste. Enjoy!

iHerb Customer Reviews
The box does bear the "organic" logo, to the side and the teas come inside a plastic ziploc type bag. The sachets do not have any staples nor string, they are to be fished out with a spoon. I did not like the smell of the tea sachet. I noticed it's not that golden-yellow but instead has a lot of brown stuff (herbs? roots?) in it, it's about 50/50. I did not care for the taste of this tea: it's too perfumey for my taste and very sweet (I never add anything to my teas, just spring water). I couldn't finish drinking it. Also, the tea color was not yellow it was colorless which makes me question how much potency this has. I poured the rest into an empty rose water spritz bottle and used it as mist: it makes the skin extremely soft. I then cut open the sachet: there's indeed more greenish-brown stuff in it than yellow! An image engine search for "calendula tea" shows all golden yellow petals, no brown stuff. Disappointed. The search further says that calendula tea benefits include increase in collagen production due to flavonoid content, and colds & flu prevention. It's also supposed to be a strong anti-fungal and bactericide. I will not purchase this tea again because one sachet yielded more than a 4oz spray bottle and that bottle is going to last me several months. When I run out of this, I would purchase a different brand of organic calendula tea, this time inquiring first to make sure I'm getting all yellow petals and no brown stuff. If you don't mind a strong perfumey taste and are willing to test it out for the collagen benefits, it might just be the right tea for you.

A calendula face mask or scrub improves the complexion, brightens and evens out skin tone, reduces redness, spots, blotchiness and small lines, helps break down old scar tissue and prevent premature aging. It's a wonderful tea and I would recommend it to people suffering from inflammatory disorders and gastrointestinal conditions, as well as to anyone wanting to improve their overall health and well-being.
