Medicinal Properties | 
Calendula is a beautiful addition to teas, infused oils and salads. It is considered a powerful vulnerary both externally and internally. It has long been used to soothe and mend cuts, burns, bites, sprains, bruises, rashes, sunburns, and abrasions due to its antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, hemostatic, and vulnerary actions.

Calendula acts as an immune stimulant as well as being antibacterial and antiviral, so it is considered beneficial when colds, flu, and other infections take hold. Taken internally as an antimicrobial, calendula is used to help the body resist pathogens.

Calendula is considered an anti-fungal herb used both internally and externally for fungal skin infections (e.g. athlete’s foot and jock itch) and yeast overgrowths (e.g. candida in the gut, thrush, and vaginal yeast infections). 

With similar properties to Yarrow, Calendula is an ally for healthy menstruation due to its antispasmodic, emmenagogue, and estrogenic effects which regulate menstruation, resolve delayed menstruation, ease tension, cramping and pain associated with menstruation, and soothe menopausal symptoms (From The Herbal Academy).
