Botanical Name: Calendula officinalis

Plant Part: Flower

Ethanol Content: 23%

Recommended dosage:

Although texts such as the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia 1983 list a range of actions and applications (including for example, lymphatic) for preparations including infusion, low alcohol (40%) liquid extract and high alcohol (90%) tincture, high alcohol extract may be a better choice for topical anti-inflammatory and antiseptic actions – except when using as an eye bath, where use of low alcohol extract is preferred.
  • To make a cream, use 5 mL of 23% ethanol 1:2 liquid extract in 45 grams of MediHerb Vitamin E Cream. (High-alcohol extract (90% ethanol 1:2) can be used to make the cream, however, using the low-alcohol extract reduces the potential irritant effects of the alcohol.)
  • To make an eye bath, use 5 mL of 23% ethanol 1:2 liquid extract in 70-80 mL of saline.

Warnings

  • Contraindicated in known allergy to Calendula.
  • Avoid topical application of Calendula in those with known sensitivity to other members of the Compositae family.
  • Professional supervision is suggested during pregnancy and lactation.
  • Discontinue 7 days prior to general anaesthesia.
  • Refer to the MediHerb Herb-Drug Interaction chart for potential interactions.

Always read the label.
Follow the directions for use.
