Do You Know the History Behind Marigolds?

Marigolds, also known as calendars, bloom with bright orange or yellow blossoms from June until the frost. Grows naturally in Southern Europe, the Middle East. In our country is often grown in flower nurseries. They are extremely unnecessary for growing conditions.

In the Mediterranean, marigolds have long been used in Catholic celebrations to worship the Virgin Mary. Often marigold petals are used in cooking as well, giving a bright golden accent to rice dishes or stews.

Marigolds have been used in medicine since ancient times, especially for their ability to treat minor skin infections, wounds, abrasions. Knowledge about the treatment of calendula tea is already known in ancient Greek written sources. It is known that marigolds were used for healing by such medical doctors as Galen, Avicenna, and Anasiaci.

Many Nutrients are Found in Calendula

The marigold blossom component that gives them a bright orange color is beta-carotene, also found in carrots. This substance is known to be the main source of vitamin A.

Marigold flowers also contain flavonoids, phenolic carbonic acids, saponins, polysaccharides, yeasts and essential oils that stimulate the immune system. This makes marigold tea very suitable when there is a risk of colds or when healing is accelerated.

In addition to strengthening the immune system, calendula tea has more healing properties. It is used as a perspiration stimulant, to clean blood and purulent wounds.

In its chemical composition, marigolds resemble arnica, thus affecting the nervous system in a similar way. They regulate the heart rate and reduce the reflective irritation associated with menopause. It also eliminates headaches, improves sleep, and reduces swelling. Calendula tea has a mild estrogenic effect, which reduces menstrual pain and heavy bleeding.

How to Prepare Calendula Tea?

Two tablespoons of dried calendula flowers should be filled with a glass of boiling water and heated in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes. Then leave to stand at room temperature for 45 minutes, then sniff.

Another preparation method: the herbs are stewed and kept in the oven all night long – this method is suitable for those who have an ancient oven with a long-keeping heat in the oven.

It is now possible to store splashes in thermos. Refill the filling. The amount of filling can be topped up with a full glass of boiled water. This infusion is used warm: 1/3 glass 2-3 times a day, before meals in case of stomach cramps, ulcers, gastritis. In combination with vitamin PP (nicotinic acid), it is beneficial in the case of non-operable malignant gastric tumors.

For the relief of stomach ulcers, atherosclerosis, hypertension, liver diseases, the following tea is very useful: 10 calendula flowers are cut, mixed with 6-7 raspberry leaves and a couple of mint stalks. Everything is filled with boiling water, covered, kept for 5-7 minutes and taken orally.

Calendula Tea Benefits

Calendula tea is known to have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects and is therefore used in case of ear inflammation, eye inflammation, sore throat rinsing. For this purpose, marigold tea can be made by simply brewing dried blossoms with boiling water for about five minutes.

Marigolds are also used in cosmetics: for exfoliating scalp, shrinking pores, normalizing oily skin. Used for skincare, calendula tea promotes the production of natural collagen, which makes the skin look younger.

Prepared calendula tea is stored in the refrigerator and used externally to cleanse blackened, peeled or otherwise problematic skin. Tea for face and neck toning can be frozen into ice cubes.

Calendula is not suitable if low blood pressure, allergic to vitamin A preparations, should be used with caution during pregnancy.

Raw material collection and preparation. Marigold flowers (Flores Calendula) are collected with the inflorescence having at least half of the petals spread. Raw material is collected 10-20 times throughout the summer.

If flowering marigold flowers are regularly picked after flowering, more new flowers are formed and the overall yield of herbs is higher. Late harvesting begins to ripen the seeds and reduce the number of new ones. Marigold flowers are collected every 3-5 days.

The ring is removed immediately below the inflorescence. Do not collect in polyethylene bags as they quickly heat up and breathe. It is dried in a well-ventilated area where direct sunlight does not reach, spreading in a thin layer. If the ring collapses, it collapses, meaning it is sufficiently dry. She has a faint aroma and a bitter taste.

The shelf life of dried flowers is 2 years.
