Calendula, a carefree flower

Calendula is one of the Asteraceae, a family of plants that includes daisies and sunflowers. Among the 20 species of calendula that exist, the most famous and most used is calendula officinalis, also called garden marigold. Calendula comes from the Mediterranean region and Macaronesia, but it has conquered the whole world with its ease of cultivation and its beauty. Calendula is distinguished by its yellow or orange flowers, which follow the movement of the sun. Its leaves are oval, green and hairy.

Manufacturing of calendula macerate

In order to extract its oil in the best way, the healthy and cleaned seeds are cold pressed using an endless screw, then its extract is filtered on blotting paper. Calendula macerate is prepared in a base of sunflower seed oil in order to magnify its properties.

Properties of calendula macerate

Calendula is a plant with multiple virtues, which can be used in infusions or on the skin:

The benefits of calendula on the skin

According to numerous sources:

  • It promotes healing of the skin, thanks to its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, antifungal and healing properties. It can be used on wounds, burns, cuts, abrasions or ulcers.
  • It fights against infections and inflammations of the skin, by eradicating the micro-organisms causing acne, eczema, warts or varicose veins. It can be applied as a cream, gel or poultice to alleviate symptoms.

The benefits of Calendula infusion

According to numerous sources:

  • It preserves the liver, avoiding damage caused by certain medications, such as paracetamol.
  • It balances blood sugar levels, enhancing insulin sensitivity and optimizing the effectiveness of anti-diabetic medications. It can be ingested in the form of chá or mother tincture to control diabetes.
  • It relieves inflammation of the mucous membranes, such as mouth ulcers, gingivitis, sore throats or gastritis. It can be used in the form of chá, gargle or mouthwash to soothe irritations.

Calendula is therefore a beneficial plant for health, which can be easily grown in a pot or in a garden. However, care must be taken not to mix it with African marigold or marsh marigold, which are distinct plants and do not have the same effects. It is also necessary to follow the dosage and application instructions, as calendula can cause adverse reactions such as allergies, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. It is recommended to seek the advice of a doctor before using calendula, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or following medical treatment.
