Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in an airtight container.
Safety: People with allergies to other members of the Asteraceae family (ie. feverfew, chamomile, or echinacea) should exercise caution with calendula, as allergic cross-reactivity to Asteraceae plants is common. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
