This herb contains flavonoids and essential oils that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve blood circulation and boost the immune system.
Calendula oil is beneficial for treating dry skin, healing wounds and burns, reducing inflammation associated with arthritis, relieving menstrual cramps and promoting digestive health. It is also used for its antimicrobial properties to treat various infections such as oral thrush or conjunctivitis.
Calendula is generally considered safe but may interact with some drugs or cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Due to its diverse therapeutic benefits, calendula has gained popularity as an ingredient in various cosmetic products such as creams or lotions.
