The gold flowers of health and beauty

(Calendula officinalis)

These flowers are perennials and are not pretentious. The temperature drops and they are still blooming in the garden.

Called “the gold flowers of health and beauty” (Marigold), they are used in treating different health problems (eczema, gastritis, skin burns, wounds, scars, insect bites) for centuries.

Benefits of Marigold tea:

  • strengthens the immune system;
  • helps fight bacteria and viruses;
  • helps in gastrointestinal and urinary disorders;
  • prevents inflammation in the body;
  • regulates the menstrual cycle;
  • decreases the symptoms of the oral cavity;
  • has a detoxifying effect;
  • prevents the formation of wrinkles;
  • heal insect bites, irritations, scars;
  • used for hair with dandruff tendency; …

Also, the flowers are used for:

  • sugar for desserts and decorations;
  • skin cream
  • shampoo and shower gel.

We can learn so much from nature by simply observing how it works through a flower. The flower knows it is part of nature’ we have forgotten that.
