History & Origin
Calendula has been used medicinally for centuries and was popular in Ancient Greece and in early Indian and Arabic cultures. It is now grown in gardens all over the world and is a very popular and common plant remedy.
The name Calendula comes from the Latin word for calendar because it flowers for so many months of the year.
What is it used for?
SKIN HEALTH – DIGIESTION – LYMPHATIC SUPPORT – HORMONES
Calendula is a very versatile herb with many uses. It is probably most well-known for its ability to help heal skin when used topically. Calendula is used for rashes, cuts and scrapes and any kind of skin irritation.
But Calendula has many other uses. It is a slightly bitter herb and so is great for digestion. It also has an ability to support the lymphatic system, which makes a great addition to a detox formula. It also has an affinity to the female reproductive system, and helps support hormone balance.
