marigold is a plant. People use the flowering parts that grow above the ground to make medicine.
Despite serious safety concerns, people take marsh marigold for pain, cramps, menstrual disorders, swollen airways (bronchitis), yellowed skin (jaundice), and liver disorders. They also take it for constipation, fluid retention, high cholesterol, and low blood sugar.
Some people put marsh marigold directly on the skin for cleaning wounds and sores.
