About Calendula: Each spring and early summer, Avena's gardeners transplant thousands of calendula seedlings started from seed in our greenhouse. From late June through early October, we hand harvest hundreds of pounds of these brilliantly orange flower blossoms from our biodynamic garden rows. Our hands become sticky from the resin calendula is famous for. We immediately tincture this flower in organic alcohol. The flower has many uses, both internally and topically. As an extract, it supports lymphatic circulation and a healthy immune response, benefits the skin and mucous membranes and promotes healthy liver function.
Biodynamic Agriculture is a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to gardening and farming — one that we at Avena Botanicals have been practicing since 1998.
Around the world, people are studying and applying Biodynamic principles and practices in gardens, farms, and orchards to support the Earth’s healing and resilience. Based on the work of philosopher and scientist Dr. Rudolf Steiner, Biodynamics has continued to evolve and grow since 1924. From seed to bottle, we are dedicated to caring for our garden... soil, trees, medicinal plants, pollinators, each other, and you, with integrity, respect, and love.
