The Mighty Calendula

Calendula, freshly harvested

 

Since ancient times, calendula has been used for its phenomenal abilities to restore skin, assist in wound healing, and activate collagen receptors.  It's anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral properties make it extremely useful in treating slow-healing cuts, protecting skin from free radicals, and relieving pain.
Calendula is an extremely safe herb that can be used by all ages, including the very young and old.  The FDA even lists it as one of the safest herbs to treat children. 

Calendula is a profoundly healing ingredient that contains at least 19 carotenoids, 15 amino acids, linoleic acid, and numerous antioxidants, triterpenes, and flavonoids. These compounds help boost collagen production, plump skin, provide a healthy skin barrier, quicker healing of wounds, cuts, bruises, protection from environmental and oxidative stressors, and delayed skin aging.  Modern research has proven many of its healing abilities and noted its extraordinary ability to protect the skin from cellular and oxidative damage. 

Calendula is effective for over-exposed, dry, or mature skin. It can affect blood flow to the skin cells, provide antioxidant protection that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and age spots, and even the scars' visibility. By protecting against infections, calendula oil keeps wounds and scrapes safe, allowing them to heal rapidly. Aside from stimulating healing, calendula oil can significantly enhance and restore the appearance of our skin. It helps promote healing of wounds, scars, or burns, including those produced by laser surgery.
