Where does it come from?
This little orange and/ or flower called Calendula officinalis is native to Southern Europe. Not to be confused with Calendula that is smaller and completely yellow. Calendula officinalis is the plant used for its benefits to our health and skin. Something interesting to note is that its seeds look like little fishing hooks with teeth… We know we just said that it would be an interesting fact, but can this really be considered as an “interesting fact”? … were not sure ^^’
What is it used for?
