CALENDULA OFFICINALIS signs and symptoms from the Characteristic Materia Medica by William Burt of the homeopathic medicine CALENDULA OFFICINALIS…


It probably produces its wonderful action in preventing and diminishing suppuration in lacerated wounds, through the spinal nervous system; certainly no remedy can equal it in lacerated wounds, with or without loss of substance.

It seems to have some specific action upon mucous membranes, for no remedy can equal it as an injection in vaginal and uterine leucorrhoea.
