History: In India, which may have been the plant & country of origin, the gods and goddesses adorning the temples are crowned with wreaths of marigolds. These flowers are the 'marybuds' of Shakespeare, the prefix 'Mary' coming from the belief that they were worn by Our Lady. In the sixteenth century, grocers in many countries sold dried marigold petals for use in drinks, infusions, broth's and for medicaments. An old recipe for marigold cheese required the milk of seven cows, and the cream from the milk of seven more cows. Of the plant mixed with other herbs, Fletcher (1579-1625) wrote 'These for frenzy be.

Absolute Oils: This Oil is an Absolute Oils. Many times distillation of a plant by steam method does not extract as much natural oil from the plant, or in some cases, breaks down the precious natural oil in delicate flowers. The solvent extraction method is often used in these cases. As a rule, absolutes are more concentrated than a similar essential oil. Therefore, an absolute goes much further than the essential oil counterpart. Silky Scents ™ Provides you the highest grade of Absolute Oils.
