Marigold ~ (Tagetes minuta) Pure Essential Oil
The marigold is associated with the sun – being vibrant yellow and gold in color. The flowers are open when the sun is out. The marigold is also called the “herb of the sun”, representing passion and even creativity. It can mean to show strong passion, being associated with the legendary brave and courageous lion. Its Victorian meaning, desire for riches, is probably consequent to the legends of the flower being Mary’s gold, depicting coins. People believed that picking marigolds or looking at them for a long period of time can make someone into a drunkard. Others regard the marigold as a love charm.
Marigold has been used to treat a variety of ailments affecting the skin as well as infections and fungus. Research suggests that this plant ally may be effective in treating diaper rash, wounds, vaginal yeast infections, and other skin conditions due to its antifungal, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. It has also been used as a pain reducer and inflammation reducer.
