Calendula (Calendula officinalis)

Calendula is derived from the marigold flower and is found throughout Europe and southern Asia.

Its edible petals contain a naturally high amount of phosphoric acid and nitrogen, and are anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, anti-fungal, astringent and cholagogue. It is also rich in antioxidants, such as flavonoids, polyphenols, triterpenes and carotenoids, and may support oral health when used as a mouth wash.

Also applied as an infusion, it is mostly used to assist with menopausal problems, menstrual disorders, gastro-intestinal inflammatory issues or for supporting the immune system.
