The Benefits of Smoking Marigold

Marigold flowers are pretty and useful, both in the garden and as part of our herbal medicine cabinet. The cheerful orange and yellow blossoms have many uses as a medicinal herb, including soothing wounds, making a beautiful skin cream, and stimulating the immune system. They can also be smoked to calm the mind, reduce anxiety, and boost mood.

Although inhaling any type of smoke can irritate the mucous membranes of the lungs, smoking herbs is generally considered safe and effective if done in moderation. Depending on the herbs and how they are smoked, consuming herbal mixtures can help to soothe coughing and improve breathing. Certain smokable herbs, like mullein and nettle, can also promote clearer, healthier lungs by helping to clear out phlegm.

Marigolds are also well-known for supporting the healing process of minor skin conditions and injuries, including bruises, contusions and varicose veins. It is particularly helpful for eczema and sunburns, as it soothes the skin and helps promote tissue repair. A marigold ointment can also be used to treat wounds and prevent infection, and it is an excellent addition to any salves or balms made for the hands and body.

Studies on this flower suggest that it may have powerful anti-inflammatory effects. Its high content of phenolic compounds can reduce the production of inflammatory cytokines that can damage cells. Its other active ingredients, such as the sesquiterpene apigenin and bis-(E)-beta-pyridinone, have antioxidant properties that can help fight the damage caused by free radicals.
