In Mexico, marigold flowers are known as "Cempasuchil": the flower of the dead.
During Día de Muertos, marigolds are placed on and around the altar that welcomes our dead loved ones back to this world.
With its vibrant color and rich aroma, cempasuchil serves as a guide, calling the spirits back and showing them the way to their fiesta!
Our packages of dried cempasuchil contain 10 oz. of flower petals, ready to use in your altar or elsewhere in the home!
Cempasuchil is also a well-loved botanical. It can be boiled to make a slightly sweet and calming tea, or a hair treatment that removes grey tones in light hair.
