Calendula for wounds, burns, bruises…. now flowering in Seattle

Calendula supports connective tissue and is good for wounds, burns, bruises, and boils. It is great for skin lesions in slow wound healers such as diabetics. Calendula is an “antiseptic-demulcent”.  This is a rare quality as few antiseptics help sooth the skin. A succus of the fresh plant is best for skin.  Calendula is also a wound healer and lymph mover. Calendula is drying, so is especially good for “moist” skin conditions. For tea, use 2-3 heaping tablespoons per cup of water.   Use flowers prior to opening fully.  Do not use internally during pregnancy.

Below is a list of several peer-reviewed references showing the healing power of calendula.
