Marigold is probably native to the Mediterranean region. It can be used in ointments and elixirs as a natural medicine to relieve various types of health conditions. The colorful blooms can be dried and steeped to make an herbal tea or used fresh in salads. The dried powdered petals can also be substituted for saffron in many recipes.
