Calendula (aka Marigold) has cleansing and antiseptic properties. It is possibly the oldest plant on record as a medicinal herb, with use dating back thousands of years in ancient Egypt. It was used for soothing and healing skin wounds, and also as a remedy for digestive disorders.
It is a great oil for use with children as it can be applied to cuts, scrapes, and burns with amazing results. It relieves pain and swelling, and begins to heal tissue immediately.
Calendula speeds healing of wounds, and works equally well on internal tissues. It makes a great addition to salves and balms, and is a key ingredient in boluses for vaginal or rectal use. It is soothing and healing to mucus membranes and the inside of the digestive tract.
When combined with Everlasting and Rose Hip Seed or Seabuckthorn Berry, it makes a superb treatment for old scars, internal adhesions and scar tissue.
Marigold has an amazing affinity for healing the mouth and gums. Several practitioners and individuals have reported to us that it has reduced dental gum “pockets”, healed loose teeth, and helped smoker’s gum infections. It can be diluted, swabbed on the area of concern, and allowed to sit. Finally, spit it out and follow with a tablespoon of cold-pressed Sunflower oil swished vigorously for several minutes. (This technique, called “pulling”, can help all kinds of tooth and gum issues when used daily). It does have a somewhat bitter flavor, but is not too difficult for most people–and works very well!
