The gentlest healer

As someone who loves humble, powerful, and yet gentle healing herbs, Chamomile is at the top of my list. I always keep it in my pantry, and as soon as someone at home has a sore throat or flu, Chamomile tea is the first remedy I prepare.

Did you know that this charming white-petaled herb plays a significant role in supporting our immune system? Due to its higher concentration of the active ingredient chamazulene, which provides strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, drinking Chamomile tea not only helps soothe a sore throat but also boosts our immune response, helping us recover faster. The herb is so gentle that it is suitable for kids too. When my daughter was a baby, she often had viral laryngitis, and Chamomile tea was the most efficient way to treat it.

The antibacterial properties of Chamomile make it the best natural remedy for mouth and dental infections too. Make a tea, cool it down, rinse your mouth, and chamomile’s healing properties will do the rest.

A Gentle Embrace for the Mind

Chamomile’s reputation as a natural stress reliever isn't just folklore. Ancient Egyptians revered Chamomile so much that they dedicated it to their sun god, Ra, believing it could cure fevers and calm nerves. Fast forward to today, and modern science backs up this ancient wisdom. Chamomile contains apigenin, a compound that latches onto brain receptors to reduce anxiety and promote relaxation. Imagine sipping a warm cup of chamomile tea on a bustling evening – it’s like being enveloped in a cosy blanket.

Skin Soother

Chamomile's benefits aren't limited to the inside of the body, it’s a hero for the skin too. From Cleopatra, who allegedly used chamomile in her beauty routines, to the soldiers in World War I, who applied chamomile to wounds, this herb has a storied history in skincare. Its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties can calm irritated skin, reduce redness, and accelerate healing. Whether you’re battling eczema or just need a little extra pampering, chamomile-infused products are your go-to companions. That’s why I chose it to be a hero ingredient in my Healing Lotion Bar.

Hair Care

Did you know that chamomile tea can boost the golden colours of blond hair – and it’s all natural, no harsh chemicals?! Brew chamomile tea, let it cool, and rinse your hair after a shower.

Please note that there are two types of chamomile:

  • German chamomile is an annual plant that grows upright and is commonly used in herbal medicine.
  • Roman chamomile is a perennial plant known for its low-growing, creeping habit, and it has a slightly bitter taste. It is often used as a ground cover and in skincare for its calming properties.

Both types are used in teas and topical applications, but German chamomile is generally preferred for medicinal purposes, while Roman chamomile is favoured for its aromatic qualities.

Whatever you choose to have in your garden, you won’t make a mistake. And if in doubt just have them both.
