pressing the day away . . .

Spent the day with a fellow herbalist friend of mine pressing solar infused calendula oil for use in topical preparations.  I love this plant, so humble yet bold in flavor, color and thus medicinal flavonoids.  So gentle on your skin is she, so careful not to tell her secrets to just anyone.

"Her name is Calendula you see Thick stocks for a flower so small A hearty plant she certainly is Although she doesnt get too tall."
