   4115 Calendula officinalis - seeds
Scotch Marigold. This plant was used in ancient Greek, Roman, Arabic and Indian cultures as a medicinal herb as well as a dye for fabrics, foods and cosmetics. The leaves are edible, with the petals added to dishes as a garnish and in lieu of saffron. The leaves can be sweet but are more commonly bitter, and may be used in salads. Used for the treatment of skin disorders and pain, and as a bactericide, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. The flowers contain antioxidants, and are the source of the yellow-orange coloration. The leaves and stems contain other carotenoids and beta-carotene. Plant extracts are also widely used by cosmetics, presumably due to presence of compounds such as saponins, resins and essential oils.
