Herb Highlight: Chamomile Herb Highlight: Chamomile

08 Oct , 2015

Chamomile is one of the herbs we use in our teas that nearly everyone recognizes if not by name, then by scent.  When we blend one of our teas with chamomile, the entire blending room smells lovely! It is the most frequently consumed herb.  It has been used for centuries and is considered to be one of the most gentle herbs.  

This happy little flower is actually a member of the daisy family and nearly a dozen varieties exist worldwide, German and Roman chamomile are the most frequently used varieties.  Easy to grow and requiring little maintenance, it’s a lovely addition to the home garden and is commonly used for a wide variety of applications by herbalists.

The taste of it, for most people, is comforting and relaxing.  It is a favorite in teas for the evening, and for times when we just need to unwind and destress.  High in a number of vitamins and minerals,  this is a great herb to have on hand.  

Herbalists traditionally use chamomile for: Insomnia, Anxiety, Stomach Discomfort, Skin Irritation, Inflammation, Teething,  Depression, PMS, Heartburn, Headaches, Nervous Tension and more.

We use Chamomile in our Light Hearted Tea and in our Easy Naps & Calm Nights Tea.  Do you enjoy this herb?  Do you have memories of a relaxing cup of tea from childhood when you smell it brewing?  Let us know in the comments, on Facebook, or email us at info@birdsandbeesteas.com.

Happy Sipping!

Note: Roman Chamomile is contraindicated during pregnancy, we use German Chamomile.  If you have an allergy to any plant in the Asteraceae family there is a very rare chance you will have an allergy to chamomile.  As always, check with your doctor before implementing any changes to your health routine or if you have any questions regarding safety.
