Calendula, also known as 'pot marigold', is a plant in the daisy family (Asteraceae). These plants are native to parts of Europe, western Asia, and the Mediterranean region, but they are widely used as ornamental plants in gardens and as medicinal plants. Not to be mistaken for Marigolds, Calendula look like orange daisies and have different spiritual properties.
Calendula is associated with the sun, warmth, and joy. It is believed to bring positive energy, good luck, and protection against negativity. Calendula is also associated with love and fertility and is sometimes used in love spells or to enhance romantic relationships.
Some people also believe that calendula can help with spiritual and emotional healing. It is believed to have a calming effect on the mind and can be used to alleviate anxiety, depression, and other emotional issues. Additionally, calendula can help with divination and enhance psychic abilities.
