To dry calendula for tea:

  • Gently pull apart petals and place them in a dehydrator.
  • Set at 90°F for 12 hours.
  • After 12 hours, rub them between your fingers to feel for any moisture. If they are not completely dried out, continue to dehydrate until they are. 
  • Store in a mason jar until ready to make tea.

To make tea:

  • Bring one cup of water to a boil.
  • Add one tablespoon of dried petals to a tea ball and steep for 10-12 minutes. 


You may let calendula petals air-dry in the house or outside (on a non-windy day!), but it will take much longer. See this post for step-by-step directions.
