Calendula - The Healing Golden Flower

October 14, 2015

Calendula (or Marigold) is a beautiful flower with a wide range of benefits especially as a tea.

Calendula is especially good for women. If you have problems related to menstruation, calendula has the potential to be your panacea. It stimulates great menstrual flow and curbs irregular menstruation. If you are suffering from pains associated with menstruation such as cramps and lower back pain, drinking marigold tea would help mitigate the discomfort.

Calendula tea is great for maintaining oral hygiene, curing oral and throat-related ailments. If your mouth develops blisters (even on the lips) or your gums are inflamed, use marigold-infused tea as a mouth rinse. For relief from sore throat, gargling warm calendula tea is one excellent and effective home remedy. Gargle calendula tea daily for a clean, fresh and healthy mouth.

Calendula is anti-fungal, effectively treating itchy foot and athlete’s foot. All you have to do is soak your feet in marigold-infused water. With regular use, you will be able to see a positive difference.

Apart from feet, marigold also remedies a host of skin problems. Regularly cleansing your acne with marigold tea will treat skin ailments and differences can be seen as quickly as 3 – 4 days. Calendula is also good in treating skin inflammation, nappy rash and grazed skin – either use calendula ointment or wipes dipped in strong marigold tea at the spot of the skin ailments. This yellow flower also gets rid of scalp itchiness – rinse you hair with marigold tea for an itch-free, healthy scalp. It also promotes hair growth.

If you have gritty and itchy eyes, rinse them with warm calendula tea. It moisturizes the eyes and prevents itchiness, leaving your peepers at their sparkling best – it is even effective to treat virus-induced red eye and other eye inflammations such as conjunctivitis. Marigold eye rinse would help alleviate these eye-related problems by reducing redness, swelling and pain.

Marigold is truly a wonderful herb that contributes to your wellbeing. It’s a whole lot of goodness contained in a pretty golden flower.
