I have been lucky enough this year to get some beautiful calendula flower heads from organic farmer, John Fraser ,from Aberdeenshire, Scotland.  I am preparing them for macerating the petals in organic sunflower. Calendula for websiteThey are just a stunning colour and brimming full of lovely summer goodness.  I know they will make a fantastic macerate for using in my calendula ointment – hopefully the final macerate will be a rich orange colour – I can’t wait to see.

I will post pictures when the process is complete.  We are definitely planning to have a much larger amount of out macerate stocks to come from local flowers in future years.
