Chamomile

Ingredients

  • Chamomile (chamaemelum nobile/chamomilla recutita)

Directions

  1. It has been used for what seems like forever in treating the un-calm. A tea made form the flowers of chamomile are brewed into a tea and served as a soothing tonic which helps those who suffer from insomnia. It stimulates a flagging appetite, improves digestion, helps with urination, helps relieve colitis and hemorrhoids, and has been found to be a beneficial treatment for bursitis, arthritis, headaches, muscle cramps, and pain. It has anti-inflamatory properties in it which helps especially with arthritis!
  2. The tea has a somewhat apple flavor. Some like it, some don't. But don't let the flavor stop you from using this for helping with inflamation. There are plenty of places out there that will sell you capsulated chamomile! If you don't really care for the taste of this tea by itself, add honey to it.
  3. There are traces of Vitamin A, a high level of calcium and magnesium, potassium, iron, maganese, and zinc. This herb is not only good for the anti-inflammatory properties, it has also been used in the treatments of painful menstruation, insomnia, gas, fever,and nausea.
  4. A tea made form chamomile is made by brewing 1 tablespoon of the dried flowers into a 8 oz. cup of very hot or boiling water. Let this set for 5 or so minutes before drinking. To soothe sore, painful muscles and joints, make a poultice and soak a towel in it and wrap painful joint area. Chamomile also makes for a good hair rinse for blondes-it brightens and lightens the hair! Or you can make herbal bath bags which you added chamomile, thyme, rosemary, and rose petals, too.
  5. Give a hyper-active child a chamomile bath--to calm him. Also, if you are breastfeeding chamomile drank by the mother will sooth colic and calm your baby.  And then it stimulates milk production.
