MARIGOLD & THE ART OF TEA
Marigold has long been recognised as a medicinal flower, which has been used to address cuts, soars and general skin care.
Marigold flowers contain essential oils and a high concentration of flavonoids (secondary plant substances), such as carotene.
They act as anti-inflammatories to promote topical healing and soothe irritated skin. Topical treatment with a diluted marigold solution or tincture accelerates healing of wounds and rashes.
Research has found that Calendula extract is effective in the treatment of conjunctivitis and other ocular inflammatory conditions. The extract demonstrates antibacterial, anti-viral, antifungal and immuno-stimulating properties that were shown to reduce eye infections.
The vision is also protected by these extracts, guarding the delicate tissues of the eye from UV and oxidative damage.
Moreover, marigold is also an effective remedy for sore throats, gingivitis, tonsillitis and mouth ulcers. Gargling with Marigold tea will help to soothe the mucus membranes of the throat whilst easing the pain.
