Calendula: Cuts and Scrapes Are No Match

Calendula: Cuts and Scrapes Are No Match

Posted by Dr. Lisa Samet N.D. on May 29th 2024

Every member of every family suffers from an occasional cut or scrape. You can’t be alive and not have them from time to time.

Next time you get such an injury, reach for the homeopathic alternative. Did you know that a remedy made from the flowers of the garden marigold is remarkably effective for treating wounds?

Calendula officinalis (also known as pot marigold or garden marigold) has been used for centuries to heal wounds and skin irritations. Its certain properties make it useful for treating minor wounds, cuts, scrapes, chapped or chafed skin, diaper rashes, and other minor skin irritations.

Calendula is available in various convenient forms such as pellets, ointments, or topicals like WHP Be gone™ Lil' Cuts & Scrapes. In case of an injury, simply rinse the area with water and apply Calendula. Most formulations are pain-free and safe for all ages, making it a popular choice in my family!

As with any medical condition, consult with your physician if you have any concerns about the severity of an injury, as it may first require medical diagnosis and/or intervention and monitoring.
