Calendula officinalis, or pot marigold, is a common garden plant belonging to the Compositae family. Native to Southern Europe, Calendula grows up to 60 cm in height and produces large yellow or orange flowers. The flowers are the part of the herb used medicinally, either in the form of infusions, tinctures, liquid extracts, creams or ointments, or in one of a number of skin and hair products available over the counter across the globe.

For centuries, Calendula flowers have been used to treat a number of clinical conditions, specifically, the treatment of dermatological disorders. Whilst the many chemical constituents within Calendula and the numerous actions of the plant suggest that Calendula may be effective in treating a myriad of complaints, there is currently insufficient clinical evidence to support the use of pot marigold in conditions other than cutaneous lesions.

Calendula tea is used as eyewashes, gargles, diaper rashes and other inflammatory conditions of the skin and mucous membranes. Mother tincture of C. officinalis is used in homoeopathy for the treatment of mental tension and insomnia. Medicinal properties of C. officinalis have been mentioned in Ayurvedic and Unani system of medicine indicating that leaves and flowers are antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, antiepileptic and antimicrobial. In traditional and homoeopathic medicine, C. officinalis has been used for poor eyesight, menstrual irregularities, varicose veins, hemorrhoids and duodenal ulcers. In the middle ages, Calendula flowers were used for liver obstructions, snake bites and to strengthen the heart. It was used in the 18th century as a remedy for headache, jaundice and red eyes.
