Marigold - 100g
Description: Marigold, also called Calendula, is a beautiful blossom that blooms all year round. It is often referred to as the “flower of rain,” because the flower will not open if rain is on the way.
Marigolds are grown along the Nile in Egypt. The valley along the Nile is a highly cultivated landscape with a favourable climate for growing flowers. In fact, Egypt exports many varieties of flowers these days, and Egyptians back into ancient times have always adored their flowers. Our Organic Hibiscus, Chamomile and Peppermint are also grown in Egypt.
Fun facts: Ancient Egyptians treasured marigolds for their power to heal the skin and soothe ailments such as a sore throat. Greeks loved to put marigolds in their food and drinks to give them more flavour. American doctors used marigold petals during the Civil War to help treat the wounds of soldiers.
Directions: Brew marigold in near-boiling water to make tea. Use 1 teaspoon with 1 cup of hot water. Steep for 10- 15 minutes. Can be served chilled or hot.
When making Marigold Tea you can also include Thyme, Marjoram, Rose Petals, Chamomile, or Nettle Leaf.
