Marigold flowers are a common sight in our gardens. Historically these flowers were thought to lift the spirits and encourage cheerfulness. Medicinally calendula is used to decrease inflammation and stimulate the growth of skin and mucus membranes. Extracts of calendula have also been shown to inhibit the growth of bacteria and viruses. All of these properties make calendula an excellent wound healer and a good addition to your first aid kit.
Calendula is commonly used for burns, cuts, rashes, acne, eczema, psoriasis and any other skin conditions.
Calendula stands out as our premier herb for the healing and nourishment of the skin. It is also our best vulnerary. Calendula Cream, made with certified organically grown flowering tops of calendula infused in extra-virgin olive oil along with aloe vera, is a natural herbal treatment used topically to aid in healing abrasions, bedsores, cracked heels, chapped hands, cuts, venous congestion, and surface wounds.
