Calendula Officinalis flower
Often referred to as pot marigold, the calendula flower and parts have been used for medicinal purposes at least since the 12th century. Calendula is native to Mediterranean countries, but it is now grown throughout the world. It is not the same as the annual marigold plant that’s often grown in gardens, however.
Calendula has a high amount of flavonoids, plant-based antioxidants that protect cells from being damaged by unstable molecules called free radicals. Calendula appears to fight inflammation, viruses, and bacteria.
Calendula has been shown to help heal wounds faster, possibly by increasing the blood flow and oxygen to the affected area, which helps the body grow new tissue. It is also used to improve skin hydration and firmness. Calendula also has been shown to help prevent dermatitis or skin inflammation in breast cancer patients during radiation therapy. [i]

“My 7 year old son has had an eczema patch on his cheek for as long as we can remember. We tried the steroid creams but nothing has completely cleared it. On a whim, I had our consultant put a small amount on his cheek. Later that day, the patch was nearly gone! We purchased the whole kit at that point, and have been pleased with the results.” – Danielle
“I gave a sample to my girlfriend who has had psoriasis for many years. She called me one week later to say that her palms were healed. We went through her other ointments finding many dangerous ingredients. She threw them all in the garbage! Her reasoning…’I have spent a lot of money on these and they did not work. The Marigold products work and are safe, so I will stick with them.’” – Shirley
“I am a bug magnet! During the summer my arms and legs are covered in bites. I have been using the Marigold Lotion 2 times per day. It is working wonders! I immediately get relief!” – Robin
