Marigold

Description:

Marigold is a common garden plant with a long tradition in European Phytotherapy as a treatment for a variety of skin conditions.

What does it do?:

Calendula’s lymphatic action is a significant aid to detoxification mechanisms. Calendula is a cholagogue (increases the flow of bile) which, added to its depurative effect, makes it ideal for conditions where the lymph nodes are swollen or the lymph has become sluggish, causing skin conditions such as acne.
