Calendula has been used as a medicinal plant for centuries for helping to ease, soothe and heal everything from minor sprains to bug bites, acne, skin abraisions and irritations. Caléndula officinalis also has antimicrobial, antiviral, and astringent properties, and is a go-to skin treatment for many herbalists. Also known as pot marigold or garden marigold, has been used for centuries for wounds and skin irritations. Calendula has properties that make it useful for minor wounds, cuts, scrapes, chapped or chafed skin, bruises, burns, bee stings, rashes, poison ivy, and other minor irritations and infections of the skin. I personally added this to my first aid kit as well as my medicine cabinet so it would be easy to reach for.

Dry Skin

Calendula is an emollient and can help to moisturize dry skin. It also contains carotenoids which nourish the skin.

Scars and Varicose Veins

A calendula wash is used for healing scars, thread veins and soothing varicose veins. Thread veins are tiny, broken veins on the face.

To make a wash: steep leaves in water for 20 minutes to 3 hours. Strain. Pat on face, keep on for at least 20 minutes and gently wash off.

An alternative to this (and potentially easier and more enjoyable way) is to make a strong tea of 1 tablespoon per cup of water, strain and add the tea to a bath. Soak in the bath for a 20 to 30 minutes minimum.

Calendula as Antiseptic

It has antiseptic, antibacterial and antiviral properties, making it useful for salves and balms for cuts, wounds and for healing piercings. Any other lacerations, hang nails, bedsores, irritated rashes will benefit from using calendula.

Prevention of Dermatitis

Calendula has been shown to work in the prevention of acute dermatitis for patients undergoing postoperative irradiation for breast cancer. To use for protection from environmental stressors, apply a calendula salve before and after the stress. 

Wound Healing Activity of Calendula for Skin

Perhaps the most common and therapeutic uses of calendula for skin is for healing wounds. It is used on both new and old wounds, is safe for mucous membranes and has a great track record.

Using calendula increases both wound closure (very important in wound healing) and protein metabolism (forming new skin). For healing wounds, a daily application of calendula extract or calendula cream is used.

For slowly healing wounds and amputation stumps, one study showed that wound granulation appeared within several days of initiating treatment and secondary skin developed within 10 to 14 days. Using calendula ointment also reduced discomfort during dressing changes. For slowly healing wounds, apply calendula salve twice daily.

Calendula speeds up cell proliferation which quickens healing. It also keeps wounds from hardening and forming scars. It would be beneficial to use for healing the perineum after childbirth.

It helps to heal burns (including sunburn), bruises and inflammatory diseases of the skin.
