The Marigold Flower

Marigold is also commonly known as Calendulas. The term Calendula actually means “all throughout the month.” The marigold flower is not just used as an ornament in the house, or used in bouquet and other floral arrangements. The marigolds are hardy, annual plants that come in different bright colours, and the most common ones are the yellow and orange varieties. There is a wide variety of marigolds, and some of these varieties include African or American Marigolds, Signet Marigolds, French Marigolds, and Mule Marigolds.

The Amazing Uses of Marigolds

The marigolds can be used as treatment for inflammation of the skin such as burns, infection, cuts, bruises, sunburns, and the like. The sap from the stem of the marigold is reported to be effective in getting rid of warts, calluses, and corns. In ancient times, the pigments of marigolds are used as ink, dyes, and cosmetic colouring. Gardeners love planting marigolds because of its colour that brightens up the garden, but it is also a fact that by just merely looking at the marigolds, it can brighten up the entire day as well. Meaning, by just appreciating marigold’s beauty, it instantly transforms a bad mood into a cheery, happy one. During the old times, the marigold was also used as insect repellents that protect the skin from the disease-causing bites of mosquitoes and other flying or crawling creatures. Marigolds are also effective in lessening the discomfort brought about by headaches, toothaches, stomach aches, fever, and monthly periods. The extract of marigold is also used to avoid or to heal chapped lips. In religion, the marigold is considered a sacred flower and often offered to statues of saints. People of ancient times also believed that putting marigolds under the pillow would give pleasant dreams and hanging garlands of marigold in the entrance of the home would ward off evil spirits and sorcerers.
