Herb Calendula

Herb: Calendula / Calendula Officinalis

In the Itea Settlement of Rodopi, most types of cultivatable aromatic & medicinal plants grow naturally, whilst the majority of the villagers are engaged in agriculture.


George Ereliadis has been involved in the aromatic & medicinal plants farming since the early 70's, applying practices of organic farming.

The organic calendula flowers are hand picked from April to October and transferred to the KORRES Extraction Laboratory.


Calendula flowers are transported to the KORRES plant and stored in constant humidity and temperature conditions.

Before their use, they are checked based on specific quality parameters (entomological enemies + parasitic diseases) and then extracted in the unique extraction unit KORRES (ISO 14001 & ECOCERT certified) by the method of heat soaking. For the extraction, only 100% Greek cold-pressed organic sunflower oil is used, as defined by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) Monograph, for the traditional use of the oil for dermal use.

Thus, we produce an oily extract of calendula flowers consisting of various active ingredients such as tocopherols, sterols, carotenoids, oleic acid, linoleic acid, lecithin, and oil-soluble form of vitamin C.
