Calendula officinalis 50gm
Marigold tea has traditionally been used to prevent muscle spasms, start menstrual periods, and reduce fever. It is also used for treating sore throats and mouths, menstrual cramps and stomach ulcers. It can also be cooled and used topically to soothe sprains and wounds or as eyewash.
To make a marigold infusion or tea use one to two teaspoonfuls of dried flowers to a cupful of water. Either make as a traditional tea or, to gain maximum strength, place the herb in a saucepan, pour on the water, cover with a lid and simmer gently for approximately ten minutes before straining.
Recipe suggestion - add marigold flowers to your cake mixes and soup recipes!
For further information and recommended dosage please consult a qualified herbalist. We suggest no more than three or four cups of tea per day.
