Chamomile!


drink, use, compost.

Chamomile tea has been around for centuries, it was the Egyptian's favorite tea! Not only you can drink it before going to sleep but you can use in case of skin irritations and also, you can add it to the compost pile!

Chamomile gets thing going in your stomach and in your plants! It contains good levels of calcium, which helps the cell walls of plants develop well and helps them absorb nitrogen. It is also a good provider of sulfur, which is one of the macronutrients essential to healthy plant growth. Sulfur promotes enzyme activity, improves root and seed production, helps plants develop proteins and increase their ability to resist the cold.

Health benefits

  • Skin injuries

Chamomile tea has anti-inflammatory components that promote the healing of wounds. It was used by Greeks, Romans and Egyptians on top of skin injuries. You can apply a tea bag of Chamomile to the site of irritations, such as eczema.

  • Menstrual discomfort

The anti-inflammatory and relaxant nature of chamomile tea makes it a popular choice for women dealing with the symptoms of menstruation. This can include bloating, cramping, anxiety, sweating, inability to sleep, mood swings and others. Chamomile tea can directly affect many of those symptoms, soothing the mind and body, and reducing inflammation.

  • Improves digestive system

If you are suffering from stomach irritation, ranging anywhere from mild bloating to full-on IBS symptoms, then chamomile tea can be a major help to your happiness. A single cup of chamomile tea can make you feel better, but continual use of this can help prevent more serious conditions.

  • Reduces stress and promotes sleeping

After a long day at work, the warm, soothing nature of this beverage can help increase the levels of serotonin and melatonin in your body, which can successfully eliminate stress and worry, while also slowing down your mind and eliminating symptoms of anxiety.  In a similar way that chamomile tea can ease stress and worry, it can also be an overall sleep aid, particularly for people who struggle with restless, non-restful or rejuvenating sleep. 

  • Immune system

There is a certain amount of phenolic compounds in chamomile tea that are specifically linked to fighting bacterial infections in the body. Studies have shown that 5-6 glasses of this tea over the course of two weeks significantly improved the body’s ability to fight infections.

*The pollen found in chamomile preparations may cause allergic reactions. If you are allergic to ragweed pollen, you may not be able to use chamomile.
