Some beverages contain a world of health benefits. You may even be unaware of how much you are helping your body by drinking such a magical drink. We are referring to chamomile tea, of course. It can benefit the body in different ways, both externally and internally. You can use fresh flowers or tea bags as a topical solution, or you can sip to your health.
Chamomile tea has powerful antimicrobial properties, which work to fight microorganisms that try to contaminate the body. It also contains anti-inflammatory properties and antioxidants, which help to combat free radicals in the body. Additionally, you can intake essential vitamins, minerals, and healthy flavonoids when you drink chamomile tea.
You can brew chamomile tea with fresh chamomile flowers or tea bags. If you wish to sweeten the tea, use agave, stevia, or raw honey; it shouldn’t need a lot of sweetening, though.
Great For Allergies & Rashes:
The anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties work to soothe the irritation and help the body naturally heal. Brew a half-cup of chamomile tea and let it cool to room temperature. Dip a cotton ball in the tea, squeeze to remove extra liquid, and gently apply to the rash or allergy. Repeat until you finish the half-cup. Do this daily until your skin is healthy.
Helps Get Rid Of Mouth Ulcers:
Chamomile can’t take all the credit here because you are actually going to brew it with sage tea. The healthy flavonoids work to fight the bacteria in the mouth to remedy the ulcers. Brew 1 cup of each tea, combine them, and gargle the mixture once you can handle the temperature. Do this 3-5 times daily and mouth ulcers will go away.
Chamomile tea is the man for the job when it comes to naturally remedying conjunctivitis. The anti-inflammatory properties help to soothe any soreness or irritation. Brew 1 cup of chamomile tea and remove the tea bag from the water to cool. Once it has cooled, gently press the tea bag on your eye(s). Do this about 3 times every day to provide relief.
Time For Bed:
If you have trouble going to sleep or have insomnia, drinking chamomile tea can help calm your nerves and put you to bed. Chamomile tea almost acts as a mild, all-natural tranquilizer! Prepare one cup of chamomile tea and drink it about 1.5-2 hours before bed. You can drink several cups in the evening if you suffer from insomnia.
Goodbye Stomach Cramps:
If you suffer from stomach cramps, there is no better herbal remedy than chamomile tea. The soothing antispasmodic qualities of chamomile tea help to get rid of stomach cramps. Brew 4 tablespoons of fresh chamomile flowers in 1 cup of water. Let the flowers steep for 5 minutes and then strain the liquid. Drink the tea twice daily to get rid of stomach cramps.
Gets Rid Of Dark Circles:
Got dark circles under your eyes? Never fear, chamomile is here. Applying the chamomile tea bags on your eyes can help get rid of these dark circles. Brew one cup of water with one chamomile tea bag. Let the tea bag steep for 5 minutes before removing to cool. Press the tea bag on your eye(s) for about 10 minutes. And then drink the tea for more benefits!
Say goodbye to expensive cosmetic treatments and start using chamomile to get glowing facial skin. All you need to do is take two chamomile tea bags and steep them in a half-cup of olive oil for a few minutes. Dip your fingers in the oil and gently massage your face with it. Rinse with natural soap and warm water.
