About the Calendula Plant
Calendula Is known as a treatment for skin conditions. It has been demonstrated to help burns, bruises, and cuts heal faster, perhaps by increasing blood flow and oxygen to the affected area, and also helps treat the minor infections that can develop around these injuries. Evidence for the effectiveness of this treatment comes primarily from animal studies. Calendula has been studied in humans, primarily focusing on management of radiation therapy-induced skin damage, but the findings have been inconsistent. Its use on the skin is considered safe, and some studies suggest it to be an effective treatment for diaper rash.
