I love using Marigold (a.k.a. Calendula officinalis) in homemade skincare products, teas, and salads. Yes, it’s an edible flower! The leaves of Calendula are prickly and I prefer to just eat the yellow-orange flower petals of the plant. Pull the flower petals out of the flower head and sprinkle the flower petals over a salad or other foods. Calendula flowers can also be infused in an oil to use as a base for herbal oils, creams and lotions. Calendula is anti-fungal and very healing to the skin. It is also a beauty herb and very gentle. It can be used in lotions and soaps.

The photo you’ve shared features pot marigold, or Tagetes – a different species. However, the flower petals of the Tagetes marigold are edible, too. The pot marigold does not have the same skin soothing and medicinal properties as Calendula officinalis.
