What’s So Great About Calendula?

by

Our skin takes a lot of damage throughout the day. From sunburns to wind exposure, minor abrasions to bruises and wind spray, our skin has the job of keeping our entire body safe and protected, and it bears the brunt of the world around us. Damaged skin can take several forms, including cuts, bruises, rashes, burns, or dry or inflamed skin. Fortunately, there are a variety of holistic and natural remedies that can help even the most damaged skin cells, including calendula, the one real healing herb.

What is Calendula

Calendula is technically a flower, but its roots as a plant date back to gardens from centuries ago. Calendula is a flexible and readily produced and harvested plant that may perform numerous vital purposes as a culinary, medicinal, and beautiful flower. The flowers themselves are a powerful skincare ingredient because they boast antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and antibacterial properties. You can make your paste from the flower heads and apply it to any cut, bruise, or rash for instant relief. For more professionally extracted compounds, the benefits of calendula skincare products are much longer-lasting and far more effective.

What are the Benefits of Calendula

Calendula can be used as an oil or cream to treat any abrasion or breakout. This versatility makes it particularly effective in the treatment of acne or pimples, as well as minor cuts or scrapes. Calendula is also an excellent natural remedy for individuals that struggle with open pimples caused by cystic acne. Applying a small amount of a calendula skincare product over the affected area, allowing it to sink in, is very soothing. Calendula lotions can also soothe dry, irritated, or reddened skin, making them a valuable tool in calming eczema or rosacea. Calendula is also great to take to the beach with you: it can treat sunburns or other minor burns in seconds, making it a great partner to other all-natural treatments like aloe vera

The polysaccharides and flavonoids, among other substances, are the natural components that make calendula skincare products so powerful.  They have been shown to heal damaged and inflamed skin by speeding up the production of protective tissues that insulate and heal a skin injury from the inside out. The soothing and natural anti-inflammatory nature of calendula calms any irritations and swelling. At the same time, the antiseptic and antibacterial components reduce infections or bacteria-based issues from spreading inside the body. The organic origins of these flowers make them completely healthy and safe to use if you aren’t allergic to them. If you are sensitive to ragweed, it may be worth testing out this product in a small dose first, as ragweed and calendula share similarities and could be identical allergen triggers.

Finally, calendula flowers and skincare products are potent antimicrobial and natural sources for dry and irritated skin. Calendula is the product to have in your skincare routine if your skin needs some extra TLC.
