Traditionally, Calendula (flower) is used as a lymphatic and liver tonic. It has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties with benefits for the skin, nervous system and mucous membranes. Topically, it is an excellent first aid remedy for wounds, scrapes, burns, bruises, sprains, varicose veins, bed sores, insect bites and athletes foot. Calendula can now be found throughout the world, although it was first introduced by Europeans who used it medicinally as well as in their gardens and in some of their cooking.
