Calendula Flower

2 oz.

Calendula is a versatile herb that is native to the Mediterranean region of Europe. The calendula flower is anti-septic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral. Some potential benefits of this herb include:

Skin Healing and Regeneration: Calendula is prized for its potent anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties, making it effective in treating various skin conditions. It can accelerate wound healing, soothe minor burns, cuts, and bruises, and reduce inflammation associated with skin irritations like eczema, dermatitis, and insect bites. 

Antioxidant Protection: Calendula is rich in flavonoids, carotenoids, and other antioxidants that help combat oxidative stress and free radical damage in the body. Calendula's antioxidant properties may also support overall immune health and cellular function.

Relief for Sore Throats and Oral Health: Calendula possesses antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that can help alleviate sore throats, mouth ulcers, and gum inflammation. Gargling with a calendula-infused mouthwash or using calendula tea as a mouth rinse may help reduce pain and swelling, promote healing, and maintain oral hygiene.

Menstrual Health and Cramp Relief: Calendula has mild emmenagogue properties, meaning it can help regulate menstruation and alleviate menstrual cramps. Drinking calendula tea or taking calendula supplements may help balance hormonal fluctuations, reduce menstrual discomfort, and promote uterine health. Calendula's anti-inflammatory effects can also ease pelvic congestion and muscle tension associated with menstrual cramps.

Directions: add one teaspoon of calendula to hot water. Steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Strain and enjoy.  


FYI: Please consult your healthcare provider prior to use if you are pregnant or nursing, taking any medication, or have a medical condition.
