Whether you drink the tea or use the essential oil, Chamomile is a very useful healing herb.  It is a digestive tonic and a soporific (there’s a word for you – it means sleep-inducing).
My favorite Chamomile Tea (mainly because it’s Zhena’s GYPSY tea):
Chamomile TeaHerbal Tea Uses:

  • aids in digestion (neutralizes excess stomach acid)
  • relieves headaches (especially those with nausea)
  • aids in relieving insomnia

For Babies and Mommies:

  • safe to use with children over one year of age
  • steep a tea bag and let it cool.  Pour half of the tea into a cup and fill it the rest of the way with juice or water.

This will help your little one’s tummy aches, it will soothe teething pain, and help them rest.

  • safe to use when you are pregnant
  • it will relieve nausea, and provides valuable calcium phosphates to help you and your baby grow healthy bones.

Essential oil uses:
*NOTE* the oil is MUCH stronger than the tea.  It takes 25 tea bags to equal 1 drop of essential oil.

  • aids in relieving insomnia – I like to put a drop or two on the bottom of my feet, massage in, and then slip on socks.  Very cozy.
  • great in a bath to relieve stress
  • anti-inflammatory and a sedative
  • mild anti-depressant
  • relieves the itching of insect bites

Remember to use a carrier oil, such as jojoba, sunflower, or olive (use 1-2 drops per Tablespoon of oil).
