Ode to Calendula

October's birth flower is Calendula, one of the most commonly used herbal flowers used in natural skin care and medicine.  Calendula is a very useful ingredient.  It's soothing properties make it a favorite for use in everything from bar soaps to salves, serums, and lotions.  Here are some lovely photos from our Flickr Photo Pool that are making great use of Calendula.
