Zamnesia - Marigold Flowers: Great To Make Extracts

Marigold (Calendula officinalis) is a flowering plant that grows to a height of about to 80cm with only a few branches. The plant has 5-17cm long lance-shaped leaves that have hairs on both sides. The flowers are bright yellow or orange with a diameter of 4-7cm.

USES FOR MARIGOLD IN MEDICINE

Marigold flowers have a long history of being used for their various medicinal properties. In ancient Greek, Roman, Middle Eastern and Indian cultures marigold tinctures had been used as a medicine to treat infections and skin disorders. The plant was also used as a dye for fabrics, foods and cosmetics. Pharmacological studies suggest that the plant has antiviral, antigenotoxic, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties.

The flower petals of the marigold are edible. They are sometimes used as a garnish or added to salads to give them colour.

HOT TO MAKE A CALENDULA EXTRACT

Pour the shredded calendula petals into a clean container. Pour in as much grain alcohol so that the petals are entirely covered. Stir the calendula mix and store in a dark place for about two weeks. With a spoon, stir and press the mix in the jar gently every 2 or 4 days.

After about two weeks, strain the liquid through a cheese cloth or a coffee filter and while doing so squeeze the mix to get out as much calendula essence as possible.

Cover your filtered calendula essence with a cloth or some foil. Let the mix sit until the remaining alcohol has evaporated. Depending on temperatures and other factors, this can take about 1-2 weeks.

Don’t wait too long if you want to refill your calendula tincture into bottles because the mix will become thicker as it sits. When all the alcohol has evaporated, the tincture will have a thick, resinous and creamy texture. You can then spoon the extract into a cosmetic jar.

Make sure to store the tinctures in dark bottles away from sunlight. You can keep the tincture or the extract for 2-3 years.
