Keep Calm & Chamomile On

Chamomile belongs to the daisy family and does so much more than just calm our nerves and relaxes us before bed.

A friend of mine posted a photo of this iced-chamomile tea the other day and it immediately made me think “keep calm and chamomile on.” She was having a cold chamomile tea as an antidote to the stress and adrenaline-filled day she was experiencing.cham-o-mile-1

I’m used to sipping chamomile a warm brew, but if you fancy a cold bevy, this recipe is delicious!

Chamomile as medicine for:

  • muscle spasms
  • hay fever
  • menstrual cramps
  • insomnia
  • skin irritations (eczema) because of it’s anti-inflammatory and anti-septic properties
  • ulcers
  • burns

Even though the season’s changing, our body still craves fluids, so stay hydrated. Staying hydrated actually helps me transition to fall. I think of drinking as “putting out the fire” of anything that irritates me, for example cold weather.

If Chamomile isn’t your thing, grab some of your favourite herb (or herbal tea) and brew some of up as a great alternative to water!
