Marigold flowers have been used for their skin healing properties since ancient times. They are known to increase the growth of new tissue in wounds and decrease inflammation. They also help protect the skin from UV rays. Calendula is a beautiful herb that can be smoked by itself or added to herbal blends and prerolls. It has a smooth citrus taste and brings a happy, energetic vibe to the smoker. This herb is a wonderful addition to any herbal blend, as it can enhance the mood while also providing a soothing effect on the lungs.
Calendula can be infused into oils that can be used for topical applications, as well as in teas and tinctures. It can be used to help treat a wide range of conditions including diaper rash, sunburn, and vaginal yeast infections. It may also be useful in reducing the effects of inflammatory bowel disease and helping to fight cancer. However, more research is needed to determine its effectiveness in these conditions.
Pregnant women should not take calendula by mouth or apply it to the skin. It is also best to avoid using this herb if you are breastfeeding, as it is not clear if it is safe for nursing mothers. If you are concerned about the safety of this herb, talk to your doctor before use.
