Set Your Dial to Camomile

What is Camomile? 

Camomile is a wonder herb from the Asteraceae family. The name derives from the Latin 'earth apple', epitomising the summer months when in bloom. The daisy-like flowers are pretty and distinctive, and the aroma is reminiscent of apples and hay. Strolling through fields along bridle paths, you may come across it growing abundantly.

Is Camomile Good for You?

Camomile has been used in ancient medicine since folks discovered its powerful properties. It is said to encourage calmness and restfulness and acts as a very mild sedative. This is why it's so ideal for drinking in the evenings or in times of stress. 

Camomile is also considered good for the gut and can alleviate nausea. Many researchers have backed these claims, and although we're not chemists, we know that camomile is safe to drink for all ages unless severely allergic to pollen. 

One thing is for sure, camomile teas and infusions are known to have antioxidant properties. Camomile also contains flavonoids, particularly apigenin, which binds specific brain receptors that can aid sleep and relaxation. Flavonoids are rich in antioxidant activity and can help your body ward off every day toxins.

Camomile is also widely used in the beauty industry, and ointments, lotions and oils infused with camomile are readily available. In addition, studies suggest that it is considered a soothing component that can soothe and calm irritated skin.

As a naturally caffeine-free tea, it can be delightfully calming and highly aromatic, evoking thoughts of warm summer afternoons. And because we love camomile tea so much, we've shared our favourite pure camomile tea and camomile tea infusions for you to try.
