Calendula is a medicinal plant with a beautiful orange flower that has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-viral healing properties.

This is due to the power of the flavonoids and high concentrations of linoleic acid in the plant. These flavonoids and linoleic acid protect cells from free radical damage and pro-inflammatory compounds that make it a potent remedy for many inflammatory conditions such as skin issues like eczema, acne, dry skin, dermatitis and baby nappy rash. The carotenoids in the plant that produce the brilliant orange colour in the flower can also reduce the signs of aging by decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and provide moisture and tone to the skin.

The Calendula flowers can be brewed into a cheerful and delicious tea. Taken internally as a tea, tincture, or extract, calendula is highly beneficial and soothing for may conditions including ulcers, indigestion, colitis, heartburn, gall-bladder problems, liver problems, menstrual cramps and inflammation. The anti-viral properties also make it a great support for the immune and lymphatic system.

So, grow yourself some calendula flowers, enjoy their beauty and sip your tea or use the fresh petals as an addition to your salad or brown rice dish. If you don’t have the time to grow your own or gardening is not your thing then order an organic packet from us.
