The concept of drinking tea has been around for centuries, and there are so many health benefits to adding it to your lifestyle. I know people that cant stand tea, and I’m saying in my head, how can that be. We all have our favorites, and that goes for tea too. Personally I love all teas ,except Earl Grey. I cant stand the bitterness of it, as I call it. Id rather just take a green tea for that matter.
Chamomile tea has long been around for many years, and its known as the “sleepytime” tea, due to the relaxation benefits that it can give you. It belongs to the daisy family, and has been used to cure a number of health problems, one being insomnia.It is an essential oil, and chamomile is an anti- inflammatory as well. Chamomile , with its relaxation benefits , has been known to help with sleep disorders, panic and anxiety attacks, psoriasis, diaper rash, and stomach flu. This is just naming a few. I personally love the tea , as well as the oil.
It is wise to make your tea 30-45 minutes before going to bed, so that there is time for the relaxation state to set it. It will treat your sleepiness. Chamomile has also helped with headaches, in some people. I personally drink a glass every night in bed. I think it has helped with a more soundly sleep, as I am a very light sleeper. Chamomile has been known to help with treating bad burns or scrapes. For that, you can brew a cup by adding the tea bags to boiling water, then apply a compress to the wound. One thing that is not recommended with using chamomile, is using it during pregnancy, or taking any type of blood thinners.
You can pick up chamomile tea at any store already in the tea bags, but I usually buy pure loose leaf tea, and deposit into my own tea bags, just because I like mine strong. Its great to make you a glass before bed when the day is gone, and you are winding down. It adds so much more to your relaxation.
