Calendula is primarily known as a healing plant because of its soothing abilities. It is beneficial for any wound healing you may need including insect bites, bruises, blisters, cuts, and cold sores. Topical application of Calendula is used to keep wounds clean and help new tissue grow. It is often used to help poorly healing wounds, those that are exhibiting signs of tenderness, redness, or inflammation, to correct course. The healing herb is also effective in treating minor burns, including sunburn. It assists in sun protection and may consequently be included in sunscreen formulas for preventative care. Calendula also soothes internal wounds and burns like ulcers, heartburn, or irritable bowel syndrome. It has a protective effect for the stomach that improves digestion by repairing the gut wall while relieving discomfort in the meantime. The vulnerary capacity of Calendula can be called on to kick the leftover infection caused by a passing flu or cold. Calendula has been shown to strengthen the immune system's ability to fight off infection. This is likely due to the fact that Calendula is antimicrobial, which means it slows or kills infection to prevent it from spreading. Its antibacterial properties give it the power to fight that lingering cough or congestion you can't seem to get rid of.
Suggested use: Add 1 tbs. in a cup of boiling water. Sweeten if desired. Enjoy! This tea can be used to drink or as a mouth rinse to treat sore throat or wounds within the mouth. Or infuse in oil for skin care. *Increase dosage if needed.
