Dried Calendula Petals

In medieval Europe calendula was widely available and was known as “poor man’s saffron” as it was used to color and spice various foods, soup in particular.
According to the Oxford dictionary Calendula is a modern Latin diminutive of calendae, meaning "little calendar", "little clock" or possibly "little weather-glass, maybe a reference to the fact that the plant's bloom coincides with the new moon each month.

Calendula Flower is also known as pot marigold, but don't confuse it with the many other varieties of marigolds (tagetes). Calendula has been used medicinally for centuries.

Being a herb of the sun, Calendula can be used to remove negative energy. A Calendula infused oil can be used to consecrate tools and the petals can be used as part of an incense for divination. When sprinkled on the floor under the bed they will bring prophetic dreams.
Calendula association with the sun and being a fire element, highlights to me its energetic ability to battle stagnation and catalyze or fan inner fires such as the digestive or lymphatic. According to Julia Graves in communication with Wood, calendula also “stimulates upana vayu,” the downward bearing wind that is the life force of the pelvic region.
