Instructions for homemade calendula oil

Last Update: 17 Nov, 2022

Ingredients needed:

  • Fresh calendula flowers
  • Oil or fat in any proportion
    • Olive oil
    • Coconut oil
    • Cold-pressed sunflower oil
    • Pork fat

Preparation instructions:

  1. Place any number of fresh calendula flowers in a jar with a lid
  2. Then pour your choice of oil or fat over the marigold flowers so that all the flowers are fully submerged (otherwise mold will form on them). At the same time, it is advisable to keep the jar as full as possible.
  3. Close the jar tightly with the lid (no need to jar)
  4. Store the sealed jar in a dark, dry place at room temperature for 2 weeks
  5. After 2 weeks, strain the resulting oil to get rid of any remaining calendula flowers.
  6. Then store the homemade calendula oil in a dry, cool, and dark place.

Can dried calendula be used?

Homemade calendula oil can also be made from dried calendula flowers, but the resulting product will not be as intense, so we recommend using fresh flowers.

Can calendula be grown indoors?

In my experience, marigolds can be successfully grown in a pot outside a window. At the end of May, we planted 10 seeds in 4 boxes. In mid-June, the plants started to grow and in July the first flowers appeared. The boxes were placed in a sunny west-facing position. I watered them twice a week.
