2 teaspoons dried calendula flower petals, 1 cup of boiling water. Place calendula petals in an infuser and pour 1 cup of boiled water over the petals. Allow the calendula to steep for 10–15 minutes. Then enjoy.
Another method of making an infusion is to add a cup of dried herbs to a quart jar. Pour boiling water over the herbs to the top of the jar. You should also place a metal spoon or utensil in the jar when you are pouring the hot water if you are using glass. The metal will absorb the sudden heat and prevent the glass from shattering.
Remove the metal utensil and cover the jar tightly with a lid. Let the herbs steep up to 10 hours and then strain.
Calendula petals picked later in the season are sometimes very bitter. Sweetening with honey or other enhancements is advisable. Calendula can also be infused with other herbs for additional benefits.
Calendula is also commonly called Pot Marigold, but do not confuse other varieties of marigolds with calendula!
