Calendula is a wonderful herb to soothe your skin and decrease inflammation. Calendula contains specific constituents that have been proven in animal studies to increase the process of wound healing, increase blood flow to the area and even promote the production of collagen proteins. It also contains anti-infective properties that can help with fungal infections. There are countless ways to integrate this herb into you life such as applying it topically to:
