OGRÓDKOWA BONANZA CALENDULA—NASZ KOCHANY NAGIETEK CALENDULA - OUR BELOVED NAGIETEK by Eva Scherer odcinek 7/ part 7

Columns: 

I remember when as a child my favourite flower was always calendula. Replica of sun , yellow, orange – pure energy and joy. At that time I didn’t know how beneficial these beautiful flowers are, not only internally as a tea, but also externally on skin

Internally- infusion
Calendula tea helps treat bladder infections and stomach ulcers. You can use calendula teas as a mouthwash for gum and tooth infections and also to gargle for sore throats and tonsillitis,  Fill a heat-proof jar with fresh or dried flowers and pour boiling water over them. Cap and let infuse until the tea is cool enough to drink.

Externally compress and cream

Externally, Calendula is a remarkably potent ally in helping in the healing of wounds where the skin is broken, such as ulcers, wounds, weeping eczema etc. and the body needs help to heal itself. Calendula cream is used not only for treating minor cuts and abrasions; it is also great for chapped lips, juvenile acne and eczema.

Take a heaped tablespoon or a small handful of Calendula flowers, briefly boil in about half a litre of water then allow them to steep for another 10-15 minutes and then strain.
 Note: it is no exaggeration to warn you to make sure that the wound or sore is nice and clean before you do this compress treatment because Calendula has such power to stimulate healing that any debris caught inside can be trapped and so create another problem further down the track.
We will use dry calendula flowers for our workshop I plan in Polish House in Auckland at the end of March 2017. Together with comfrey that I presented in December, and Plantain in February, you will have almost all information while making an excellent rejuvenation blend for your skin.
