Chamomile has to be one of my favorites.
Dried chamomile flowers are used to make a beautiful golden infusion after steeping for a matter of minutes.
It is known to be an anti inflammatory aswell as:
- Reducing menstrual pain
- Treating diabetes and lowering blood sugar levels
- Slowing or preventing osteoporosis
- Helps promote bone density
- Cancer treatment and prevention
- (Above information from a study taken in 2004)
Chamomile is also a relaxing drink that is often used to calm before bed.
This amazing flower can be used to treat cold symptoms.
It is safe to give to children and babies providing they have no allergy to chamomile.
I’ve used it to calm my children before bed when they’ve had a cold or flu instead of using calpol (holy basil for fever). Personally I always add some honey when serving it for children. (Honey should not be given to children under one year).
My mother used to treat allergic reactions or other skin conditions like eczema with Chamomile.
Not sure what studies have been done in this respect but always worked for us.
Have a wonderful day. Lots of love and Brightest Blessings always
