  • Anti-inflammatory: Reduces inflammation, useful in treating wounds and skin irritations.
  • Antiseptic and Antimicrobial: Prevents infection and promotes healing of cuts, scrapes, and insect bites.
  • Antioxidant: Protects cells from oxidative damage, supporting overall health.

  • Eye Health: Contains lutein and zeaxanthin, which are beneficial for eye health and may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration.

How to Prepare Medicinally: Marigolds can be prepared and consumed in several ways:

  1. Infusions and Teas: Dried marigold flowers can be steeped in hot water to make a soothing tea. Use 1-2 teaspoons of dried petals per cup of boiling water, steep for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Topical Applications: Marigold-infused oil or ointment can be applied to the skin to treat wounds, rashes, and other skin conditions. To make infused oil, place dried petals in a jar, cover with oil (like olive or almond oil), and let it infuse in a sunny spot for 2-4 weeks.
  3. Tinctures: A concentrated extract can be made by soaking marigold petals in alcohol for several weeks. This can be taken in small doses, typically 1-2 ml, diluted in water.
  4. Poultices: Fresh or dried marigold petals can be mashed and applied directly to the skin as a poultice for wound healing and reducing inflammation.

Precautions:

  • Allergic Reactions: Some individuals may be allergic to marigold; perform a patch test before extensive use.
