Bright yellow and orange Marigold flowers are used to make garlands. They are even used to decorate the religious places. The leaves of its flowers are used as salads. Yellow dye has also been extracted from the flower, by boiling. The burning herb repels insects and flies. Pigments in the Marigold are sometimes extracted and used as the food colouring for humans and livestock.

From decoration to dyes, brightly coloured yellow and orange marigolds provide familiar splashes of colour in South Asia. They are mainly used to make garlands and for adorning buildings and statues of spiritual significance but have also been used to make skin creams.

Marigolds are very much used in making garlands. Make excellent beds and pot decorations.
