THIS WEEK’S NEWS:
Herbal spotlight on Calendula.
Calendula (calendula officinalis) is used in Western Herbal Medicine as an anti-inflammatory for skin and digestive conditions.
In herbal tea, the petals or flowers of the calendula plant (also known as marigold) are picked & dried before being added to a tea blend. They maintain a vibrant yellow / orange hue, adding colour to a dried herbal blend.
Main therapeutic uses:
– Eases inflammation and promotes healing in the gut.
– Used to treat skin conditions, including rashes and burns.
– Often used in creams or ointments for nappy rash in babies.
– Stimulates lymphatic movement, helping with natural detoxification.
