Welcome to the treasure trove of skin, digestion, and immune benefits from Calendula Officinalis (marigold)! We can’t wait to tell you all the reasons we sought out Guatemala’s organic marigold— considered the most healing of all the marigold flowers—for our BEB Organic Bubbly Wash and Diaper Balm.
As mighty as it is beautiful, marigold is full of antioxidants and volatile oils that stimulate our blood flow and help control inflammation.
To us, marigold is practically magical as it:
- soothes diaper rash
- decreases scarring
- eases burns
- reduces dermatitis and eczema
- diminishes bruising
- heals infected wounds
With such restorative and protective functions, is it any wonder that marigold is also used in cancer treatments?
For your little preemie in the NICU, it’s pure survival to be able to heal from wounds, protect against free radicals, and promote cell strength.
At BEB Organic, we treasure marigold’s antioxidant properties for rebuilding and healing tender baby cells—to gently yet powerfully heal your preemie’s delicate skin.
Itching, red, inflamed, and dry skin all respond to marigold’s healing ways.
From sunburn to warts to acne to wounds to diaper rash, marigold helps restore skin to its natural health by:
- hydrating the skin
- promoting collagen production to keep it firm and strong
- increasing blood flow to help speed wound healing
Infections produce inflammation, one of the most destructive issues for any of us, but especially for your baby with their immature immune defenses.
And what baby doesn’t deal with diaper rash from time to time? It’s uncomfortable and opens the door to other infections.
Marigold’s antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal properties soothe that swelling and pain.
But for your preemie, infection also creates stress—and stress takes energy away from growing.
Marigold is a key ingredient in our BEB Organic Diaper Balm because we know that the faster your preemie’s bottom heals, the more energy they have for growing strong to go home.
Marigold’s anti-fungal properties kill fungus that hibernates then grows in genitals, eyes, mouth, and skin—each one causing infection, pain, and discomfort for your baby.
Even your baby’s eyes benefit from marigold’s infection-fighting ability.
Though our Bubbly Wash has been tear-tested and won’t hurt your little one’s eyes, please don’t squirt it in! The beauty is, though, if a little Bubbly Wash gets in your baby’s eyes, marigold actually helps protect those delicate tissues.
In our world, marigold is as fiercely healing as it is awesomely beautiful. We hope you think so, too.
