I have just been amazed at the variety and ways this wonderful herb Calendula officinalis (Marygold, Marybud) has been used.
It is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, its ability to relieve spasms of the smooth muscles in the body, its ability to stop bleeding when applied to a wound, the healing of the said wound and its antiseptic properties.
Internally it can be made into a tea and used for many stomach disorders e.g. gastric and duodenal ulcers, stomach cramps
Externally it can be used as an ointment, lotion or wash for cuts and bruises, nappy rash, sore nipples, burns and scalds.
Its many uses has encouraged us to sell it as a tea, and tincture.
