Another scorching day in Edinburgh today! Perfect weather for harvesting Marigold blossoms (Calendula officinalis) to dry.

Once the petals have dried, I’ll probably make them into an infused Calendula oil, which is fabulous for the skin, and can be used to make healing ointments for all manner of complaints.

I will post a profile on Calendula soon hopefully, as well as a guide about how to make an infused oil.
