WHAT IS THE CALENDULA (SOUCI)?
You have probably seen many bright orange calendula (marigold flower) in gardens or vegetable gardens, but did you know that these flowers have many health benefits as well?
Calendula also called marigold (calendula officinalis) is an aromatic annual plant belonging to the asteraceae family native to the Mediterranean region. This flower has been used for centuries in ancient Greek, Roman, and Indian cultures as a medicinal plant, as well as as a dye for fabrics, foods, and cosmetics.
Calendula has a very powerful healing effect both inside and outside your body. Its bright and wonderful colors come from its powerful flavonoids which can protect and heal your body. It is an excellent natural remedy that has very few side effects.
Indeed, the powerful antioxidants contained in the little yellow flower are essential in reducing and alleviating many inflammatory health problems. Calendula (marigold) has become popular in many natural health products and has been used in ointments, herbal teas, tinctures, and topical treatments for nearly 1 years.
In addition, the benefits and uses of marigolds (calendula) have been shown to include conditions such as rashes, allergies, eczema, dermatitis, ringworm, infected sores, diaper rash, ulcers, swelling and redness caused by muscle cramps, muscle injuries, sprains, conjunctivitis, fungal infections (eg candida), ear infections, varicose veins, hemorrhoids and periodontitis.
In addition, we know that calendula is one of the most powerful antiviral plants.
Calendula contains both lutein and beta-carotene, which the body absorbs and converts into vitamin A. It also contains fatty acids, the two dominant fatty acids being calendica and linoleic acids. Its petals contain high levels of antioxidants in the form of carotenoids and flavonoids. In addition, its flower heads are rich in oxygenated oils such as monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes.
Its name “calendula” comes from the Romans, who understood that it bloomed on the first day of each month (calendar). It was a symbol of happiness in Roman gardens. It was used regularly for cooking and medicine.
