calming effect of Chamomile tea is legendary and is based in scientific fact.
The tea can also be used cosmetically to bring out the highlights in your hair.
Recently there has been some evidence that a preparation made with chamomile and
applied externally is good for eczema and sore itchy skin, which seems odd
because the fresh plant causes skin rashes on some people.
German Chamomile grows to about two
feet. Chamomile flowers may be used fresh or dried and are best when picked the day
they open. Flowers can be picked for several months. Leaving the last of the
flowers to set seed usually allows the Chamomile to self sow the next year.
Herbal Healing for Women, Rosemary Gladstar recommends lemon
balm and chamomile tea as the perfect way to relax after a stressful
day. She also suggests these for headaches, depression and insomnia. For
pregnant women, she advises it as a non toxic tea for allergy sufferers.
