Calendula’s Curing Capability

Calendula a.k.a. ‘poor man’s saffron’ is derived from the humble Marigold flower. Let that not detract from the fact that its extract of essential oil is among the most powerful antiviral herbs known to man. Perhaps not so humble after all!

Classic calendula clout alert: Antibiotic-resistant bacteria capitulate to calendula’s potent organic power. Be prepared to be impressed.

Babies Through to the Elderly Use Calendula to Cure

Topical, or skin application of this wonderfully powerful ingredient suits little ones, seniors, and everyone in between. Here are some of its ‘A-list’ list capabilities, so you understand why it has such a broad-spectrum effect:

  • Antiviral
  • Antiseptic
  • Antifungal
  • Antimicrobial
  • Anti-inflammatory

On those properties alone, in alphabetical order, you’re looking at solving: acne, athlete’s foot, bedsores, bites, burns, bruising, cradle cap, dandruff, dermatitis, dry skin. eczema, jock-itch (no kidding), nappy rash, psoriasis, ringworm, and sunburn. Not too shabby!

Calendula and Collagen

Most tend to add collagen powder to smoothies and other liquids to get it into the system. That’s one route, but always understand that when you ‘self-medicate’ or put into the body, substances that use the digestive system, the body will take what it can use immediately and the rest is discarded in the urine.

The beauty of a topical delivery is that there is no waste. Organic properties in Calendula for example stimulate the collagen production of the skin itself, so it produces what it needs when it needs it and where it’s needed. Clever, right?
