Calendula officinalis

Part Used: Dried flower

Calendula (Calendula officinalis) is also known as Marigold, which is familiar to everyone, with its pale-green leaves and golden orange flowers. It may be useful in the treatment of Eczema, Gastritis, Minor burns (including sunburn), and Wound healing. Calendula flowers were believed to be useful in reducing inflammation, wound healing, and as an antiseptic. It was used to treat various skin diseases, ranging from skin ulcerations to eczema. Internally, the soothing effects of Calendula have been used for stomach ulcers and inflammation. Calendula is found to be Antiphlogistic; Antiseptic; Antispasmodic; Aperient; Astringent; Cholagogue; Diaphoretic; Emmenagogue; and Homeopathy. An infusion of the flowers can be used for such gastrointestinal problems as ulcers, stomach cramps, colitis, and diarrhea. It is also useful taken internally for fever, boils, abscesses, and to prevent recurrent vomiting. The fresh juice of the herb or flowers can substitute for the infusion. For external use, a good salve for wounds can be made from dried flowers or leaves, from the juice pressed out of the fresh flowers, or from the tincture. The salve or dilute tincture is good for bruises, sprains, pulled muscles, sores, and boils. The tincture is used internally for gastritis and for menstrual difficulties.

Calendula is chiefly used as a local remedy. Its action is stimulant and diaphoretic. Given internally, it assists local action and prevents suppuration. The infusion of 1 ounce to a pint of boiling water is given internally, in doses of a tablespoonful, and externally as a local application. It is useful in chronic ulcer, varicose veins, etc. It was considered formerly to have much value as an aperient and detergent in visceral obstructions and jaundice. Most scientific evidence regarding its effectiveness as a wound-healing agent is based on animal and laboratory study, while human research is virtually lacking. The flavonoids, found in high amounts in Calendula, account for much of its anti-inflammatory activity; triterpene saponins may also be important. Calendula also contains carotenoids. Investigations into anticancer and antiviral actions of Calendula are continuing. At this time, there is insufficient evidence to recommend clinical use of Calendula for cancer. There is evidence suggesting use of Calendula for some viral infections. The constituents responsible for these actions are not entirely clear.
