CHAMOMILE FLOWERS - Dried Herb Tea
Chamomile is a daisy-like herb renowned in folk and traditional medicine for its health, cosmetic, and nutritional benefits.
For centuries, people around the world have turned to chamomile herbal tea as a cure-all for a multitude of physical and emotional health concerns. This centuries-old medicinal 'cure-all' herbal tea is brimming with countless health, cosmetic, and nutritional benefits!
From encouraging a peaceful night's sleep (with no nightmares) to easing anxiety to soothing a dry, flaky scalp, this tea has an impressive litany of health benefits.
HOW TO MAKE A CHAMOMILE TEA:
Put 2-3 teaspoons dried chamomile flowers into a cup. Pour in hot water. Allow to infuse for 3 minutes. Strain into another cup. Use a tea strainer to catch the chamomile flowers. Drink. You can add honey or lemon juice to adjust the taste if desired.
GENERAL CAUTIONS FOR POSSIBLE CHAMOMILE SIDE EFFECTS:
When you add a new herbal tea (such as chamomile) to your tea cupboard - say, to help you sleep better or to help manage a really stressful week - it's best to pay a visit to your healthcare provider and discuss this new herbal tea with her first.
With chamomile tea, this is especially important if you are allergic to any plant in the Asteraceae (Compositae) family, such as ragweed, echinacea, dandelions, arnica, sunflowers, chrysanthemums, feverfew, calendula, or asters, as this could mean you may also react to chamomile.
