Flavonoids, triterpenoids, essential oil and polysaccharides are the principal constituents of calendula flowers.
Research suggests that calendula deserves its reputation for wound healing. The herb’s antifungal and antimicrobial properties help prevent infection and heal injuries to body tissues.
Calendula is also known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant components, which might help to fight cancer, protect against heart disease, and ease muscle fatigue.
DisclaimerIn some cases, calendula tea can cause mild irritation or an allergic reaction when you put it on your skin. Doctors also warn that there may be unexpected interactions when you drink calendula tea and take sedatives.We need more research to figure out if calendula is safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. So for now, women who are either should stay away from calendula tea.
We do not recommend taking any herbal teas whilst pregnant unless you have done your own research or consulted a professional herbalist or doctor.
If you have a medical condition or take pharmaceutical drugs please consult your doctor prior to use.
