I grew some calendula and now I have the dried petals. Should I infuse them in some oil or just crush the petals into soap batter? How have you used them?

You can do either. Calendula is one of the few botanicals that keeps its pretty color. I also brew a tea with them and use that as a water replacement in some of my soaps.
