Calendula cream

Flowers, great friends

The words we know are many, but I really believe that they would all be unsuitable for describing the magic of the relationship between human beings and flowers. To try to explain it to all our interested readers we can start from a slightly higher level, that is the great relationship between man and nature as a whole: we are perhaps the best fruit (certainly the most evolved) that nature can boast, but unfortunately for some decades the nerve center of our lives has been gradually and rapidly abandoning the most natural places to move to the cities we have built and which are increasingly expanding. This would suggest a sort of rupture of the great bond between the creative mother Nature and her beloved Man; in fact, as a constancy of «attendance» this is definitely true, however what we carry inside is always alive and well as a feeling and an extraordinary demonstration are precisely the flowers: they manage to excite us to the point that we are currently used to communicate emotions and feelings, two of the most difficult things to convey in words and in every other way. For this purpose, however, the flowers are perfect, because they combine natural beauty with an equally natural discretion, suitable for any context.

Natural extracts


But man does not have such a close relationship with plants (or with vegetable nature) just because they provide us with oxygen, or excellent fruits to eat. Over the centuries, thanks to continuous experimentation that has seen us starting from the desire to seek remedies for our occasional ailments, we have been able to understand that many plants and flowers contain natural substances that we can isolate in the form of an extract, which can be assimilated with a certain ease. All this has given rise to more than one science; in reality they would be better defined as disciplines, because although they are based on certain and therefore scientific considerations, they do not have all the trappings of a science, but use the results of other sciences such as botany. They are herbal medicine and a branch of it called phytotherapy: herbal medicine essentially represents the art and all the notions that teach how to catalog, recognize and preserve medicinal and medicinal plants in the best possible way; phytotherapy, on the other hand, is that discipline (closely related to herbal medicine from which it derives, as already mentioned) that finds the best way to take these beneficial substances contained in the natural extracts of plants.

The marigold

There are many plant species that can boast an interesting content of nutrients and which are therefore used in herbal medicine and phytotherapy; one of the groups of plant families that has the greatest number of «interesting» representatives is that of the Compositae: for example, chamomile belongs to this family of plant species, widely used both as a drink for its relaxing and soothing properties (against insomnia and pain in the abdomen especially) and both as an extract often for some shampoos that aim to make the hair softer and more beautiful. Another plant belonging to this group is the calendula; this is a specimen of an annual herbaceous plant, which can reach eighty centimeters in height with a fairly erect stem that bears a variable number of flowers (but generally not very numerous) of appreciable size, known by the common name of “fiorrancio” due to the characteristic very lively orange color. All the active ingredients and nutrients that interest us derive from the floral part of the plant, specifically from the numerous petals that surround the reproductive part of the flower itself. There are many ways to use calendula, but the most interesting thing is certainly the large number of benefits we can obtain from it.

Calendula cream: Calendula cream

From a numerical point of view, calendula is one of the plants with the most nutrients and beneficial substances, in fact only a short list of them could be the following: flavonoids, sterols, carotenoids, tannins, triterpenoids and essential oil with dozens of positive substances to dial it. Obviously this «bendiddio» can be extracted and exploited in various ways, a lot actually depends on what you want to do; in particular, calendula has proven to be an agent in these contexts: cleaning and care of the skin, anti-cholesterol and anti-accumulation of lipids and fats, increase in the speed of wound healing, demonstrate a property against ulcers (cytoprotection of mucous membranes gastric), strengthening action on veins and on the whole cardiovascular system. Now it is clear that if you want to protect the gastric mucosa to avoid or alleviate ulcer problems, the most suitable form is either that of herbal tea (therefore dry extract) or that through the oily extract that can be taken in various ways. Referring specifically to the calendula cream, it appears to be used above all for the care of wounds, for cosmetic cleaning and purification of the skin and its imperfections, a situation in which the action of perfume and also the moisturizing one is very useful, always to be appreciated for such products.
