Marigold Flower Tea

Marigold is a great herb and we all know how versatile it can be. Healing properities, treating minor burns, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal preoperties really make this pretty orange flower a loved one. Few months ago I had a pretty bad PMS and later nasty cramps occured. A familiy friend told me about Marigold tea. I needed to get some dried Marigold petals but I didn’t have any so she gave me hers. Now I know that the process of drying Marigold flowers is not as difficult as I imagined and now I have made my own.

Neven je super biljka i svi znamo kako razlicite primjene ima. Od toga da pomaze zacjeljivanju, zarastanju manjih opekotina, ima protuupalna svojstva, antibakterioloska svojstva i protugljivicna svojstva te sve to cini ovaj narandzasti cvijetak omiljenim. Prije par mjeseci imala prilicno jake simptome PMSa a kasnije su uslijedili grozni grcevi. Porodicna prijateljica mi je rekla za caj od nevena. Samo su mi bile potrebne susene latice nevena. Posto ih nisam mogla sama nigdje nabaviti, barem nisam znala gdje, prijateljica mi je poslala svoje. Sada mi je poznat proces susenja nevenovog cvijeca i uopste nije komplikovan kako sam mislila te sada imam napravljen domaci caj od nevena.

Flowers need to be rich, in full bloom and of course organic. And you just need flowers, not stems. These flowers need to be gently rinsed and then you put them on a towel or any other soft piece of cloth. Do know that they will leave yellow-orangey stains on that piece of fabric. Make sure you put them away in a place with shade. You don’t want them to be fried on direct sunlight and an occassional shake will provide additional air flow. After they are completely dry you can stash them in a nice glass jar or a ceramic pot like I have.


Cvjetovi moraju biti bogati, u punom cvatu i naravno organski. Potrebne su vam samo latice, ne i peteljke. Potrebno je latice njezno oprati pod vodom i staviti ih na peskir ili neku krpu da se tu suse. Trebate znati da prilikom susenja ostavljaju narandzaste mrlje po tkanini na kojoj ih susite. Ostavite ih negdje u hlad. Ne zelite da ih sunce direktno sprzi a u procesu susenja ne bi bilo lose da ih sa vremena na vrijeme protresete lagano. To ce im omoguciti dodatnu cirkulaciju zraka.

This especial flower tea is really great for regulating menstrual periods and it helps strengthen the immune and lymphatic systems.This tea is extremely easy to prepare. Just put a teaspoon or two into a bowl and pour boiled water over the flowers. Cover and steep for 5-10 minutes. Than you strain it and it’s ready to serve. It really helped calm my cramps and the taste is a little unusual but it’s not bad at all. Have in mind that Mairgold usually doesn’t cause any reactions but I have read that it’s not good to use it during pregnancy since it stimulates uterine contractions and people with glaucoma should avoid it because it can increase eye pressure.

Cvijet nevena je jako dobar u smirivanju menstrualnih grceva a pomaze u jacanju imunog sistema i limfnog sistema. Caj je veoma lako pripremiti. Stavite jednu do dvije cajne kasike suhog cvijeca u posudu i prelijte kljucalom vodom. Prekrijte i ostavite da odstoji 5 do 10 minuta. Zatim ga procijedite i spreman je za upotrebu. Meni je mnogo pomogao sa grcevima a ukus jeste malo neobican ali nije toliko los da se ne moze piti. Treba imati na umu da neven vecinom ne izaziva nikakve nuspojave ali sam procitala na par mjesta da ga nije dobro piti tokom trudnoce posto stimulise kontrakcije a takodjer i ljudi koji pate od glaukoma bi ga trebali izbjegavati jer moze povecati ocni pritisak.
