Many herbal remedies come from the powers of the flowers! One magical flower in particular that serves a number of different purposes is Calendula. Calendula benefits can effect you both internally and externally.
Its healing properties range from treating things as little as acne to deeper issues such as GI tract problems in which it protects the lining of the intestines and stomach. Its antibacterial & anti-inflammatory qualities make it a perfect calmative botanical for irritations like lacerations, abrasions, and skin infections. Have a sore throat or tooth infection?
Calendula tea can be used as a mouthwash to soothe those discomforts. Even use this as an eye wash remedy to help treat chronic conjunctivitis (pink eye) or ear infections. You can consume this flower by making it an addition to your salads, cereals, rice, and soups or simply warm up some calendula tea and enjoy!
