Marigold leaves can be used to make a great dye. Depending on the mordant used, they make colors that range from yellow to greenish-yellow to gold. We don't sell the mordants, but you can buy them online from a number of stores. Check out the links on our page for some ideas.
Our marigolds are grown in raised garden bins with a 7-foot width. They haven't been sprayed with chemicals, and our llamas' poop was used to feed them.
Each 4 ounce bag of dried flowers should give nice color to 4 ounces of protein fibers like wool, mohair, and silk. You can use more than 4 ounces of fiber in the dye bath, but the colors will be softer and lighter.
Marigold was used in the past to help with stomach and gut health and to boost the defense system. In Europe, the dried, ground flowers are fed to chickens as a source of carotenoids to improve the color and nutrition of egg yolks. They are also used as a yellow food dye.
◉ Skin Healing:- Calendula has been used since ancient times to heal cuts, burns, rashes, itching, bites, and swelling on the skin. This is still its most common use today. Marigold has been shown to help healthy new tissue grow, increase blood flow to the affected area, increase collagen production (which firms and hardens skin), hydrate dry skin, and speed up the healing process after surgery or damage to the skin.
Marigold is thought to be able to help heal wounds because it increases the production of epithelial cells, which are the cells that cover the outside of the body. This is mostly due to the presence of glycoproteins and nucleoproteins. It is also linked to a faster turnover of cells and better collagen processing.
◉ Natural Antiseptic/Anti-Inflammatory:- Calendula was used as a wound treatment during the First World War and the American Civil War. The main chemicals in Calendula are called triterpenoids, and they are said to be the most important anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous (stops swelling) parts of the plant.
Marigold extract can also be put in the ear canal in the form of drops to treat bacterial ear infections and reduce pain. This is a well-researched way to use Marigold extract. After just a couple of days of use, these drops have been shown to reduce stiffness and inflammation in the inner ear.
◉ Conjunctivitis/Eye Inflammation:- Researchers have found that Calendula oil helps treat conjunctivitis and other eye conditions that cause inflammation. Antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and immune-stimulating qualities in the product have been shown to help prevent eye diseases. These ingredients also protect the eyes from UV and chemical damage, which can hurt the delicate cells of the eye.
◉ Sore Throat/Mouth Ulcers:- Marigold is a good treatment for sore throats, gingivitis, tonsils, and mouth ulcers because it kills bacteria and fights infection. Gargling with marigold tea will help ease the pain and soothe the throat's mucus membranes.
