Oh really? How do you make an ointment from them ?

Wash about two handfuls of marigold petals, dry them in a salad spinner and pluck off the petals. Now heat 125 milliliters of vegetable oil together with 25 grams of beeswax and gradually add the petals. Let the mixture swell for about ten minutes. The temperature must not exceed 70 degrees Celsius. Then let the mass soak for 24 hours - the marigold ointment is ready!
