Calendula – Herbal Profile

I am so in love with herbs and their healing properties. Learning about herbal medicine was one of the greatest gifts Icould have been given. Each herb has its own unique healing capacity. Here are a few of the wonderful benefits of Calendula:

 

* packed with antioxidants

* great source of beta-carotene (vit A for vision)

* stimulates the immune system

* can relieve menstrual cramps and pain

* detoxifying for the lymphatic system, liver and gallbladder

* reduces stomach inflammation (gastritis)

* reduces the severity of colds and flu

* regulates hormones

* reduces hot flushes

* reduces inflammation

* can help ease headaches

* stimulates collagen production in the skin

* stimulates blood circulation

* eases sore throats

* wound healing – such as cuts, scrapes, bites

* eczema and psoriasis

* cradle cap and nappy rash

* can be used as a mouthwash to kill bacteria

* is anti-spasmodic and anti-biotic

 

A little powerhouse of healing in such a gorgeous flower.
