Medicinal uses and properties: anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, inflammation, bleeding, to sooth irritated tissue, dermatitis and pain, abdominal cramps, constipation (yikes!), spasmolytic and spamogenic, immunomodulatory, anti-tumor, digestive system, detox, liver, gall bladder, feminine ailments, skin conditions, anti-hemorrhagic and anti- septic [1,2,3]


Many people think of Calendula ( Marigold ) as nothing more than an ornamental plant. Like many other ornamental plants though, it has an arsenal of medicinal properties and thorough scientific studies to back up its healing potential. On this page well discuss all of its medicinal qualities, the science behind it, and the ancient applications it has in holistic health practices.


"Calendula oils are prized for their anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor properties. A tincture is used topically for acne, to reduce inflammation, control bleeding, and sooth irritated tissue. Topically it also helps prevent dermatitis and pain. It also has applications for abdominal cramps and constipation(yikes!). It demonstrates both spasmolytic and spamogenic effects and immunomodulatory properties as well as anti-tumor activity in mice. In rare cases, it induces allergic reactions."[2]


Phytochemical Constituents:


When people mindlessly rant about how these remedies have no science to back up their potential medical value, they are wrong. People who don't believe in this sorta thing are naturally bias against the therapeutic use of plants. Instead of taking the time to do the research the just believe that there hasn't been any. Fortunately for us, there is an entire branch of chemistry dedicated to the study of medicinal plants. It's called phytochemistry, and it studies the pharmacological alkaloids that these herbs create. Each remedy produces many medicinally active chemicals, and Calendula is no different.


Flowers contain flavonol glycosides, triterpene oligoglycosides, oleanane-type triterpene glycosides, saponins, and a sesquiterpene glucoside.[2] Each one of these complex alkaloids is created by the plant using a schematic programmed into the DNA ( Deoxyribonucleic Acid ). They all have their own unique medicinal qualities. Essentially, each alkaloid is a medicine in itself. Sapponins are found in other herbs which are thought to be oneirogenic ( dream inducing ).


For anyone who's done a lot of research on these natural remedies this should come as no surprise. Today new plant species are being discovered all across the globe. Unfortunately the destruction of the rain-forest and other parts of nature are endangering hundreds of thousands of plant species that could very well be cures and powerful medicines for human kind. The next time you see a "weed" and feel the urge to destroy it, remember these facts. Nature is the planets largest and most active pharmacy.
