Chamomile tea is well known to boost immunity and reduce stress, and all the way throughout history, it has been known for its healing, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antispasmodic properties. There are many ways in which chamomile tea can help your health, and here are some of them.
It helps you sleep and treats insomnia
Chamomile tea relaxes and soothes your nervous system, and that can make you help sleep better. It also lacks caffeine that many other teas have, so that makes it the best choice to consume before bed.
It strengthens the immune system
Studies have shown that chamomile tea acts as an excellent preventative measure against diseases. It can help you strengthen your immune system and it will also fight harmful bacteria.
It helps with the cold
Another great thing about chamomile tea is how it can help you fight against common cold. You can drink a hot cup of chamomile tea to help you from the inside, or you can inhale its vapors to quickly ease nasal congestion, runny nose, and sore throat.
It helps with periods cramps
Chamomile tea has soothing and antispasmodic properties. It can relax the uterus and reduce the production of substances causing pain.
It soothes abdominal pain
Chamomile tea can be used as a digestive relaxant and to treat various stomach disorders including bloating, vomiting and diarrhea.
It can help heal wounds and skin conditions
Chamomile tea has a long history of helping heal wounds, many ancient nations knew about its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, so it has been used that way for thousands of years. It can also help treat skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
It helps you relax
Chamomile tea acts as a gentle relaxant and an effective natural sedative, so it is a great choice of drink when you come home after a stressful day at work.
It can combat acne
Chamomile tea could help you combat frequent outbreaks of acne. It also helps dark marks (Voldemort, is that you?) caused by them to fade and removes acne scars due to its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.
It heals sunburns
Harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun can cause various problems for your skin. Chamomile tea is known for its antioxidant, soothing and anti-inflammatory properties and is therefore excellent in treating sunburns. For example, you can make the tea, cool it well, dip a towel in it and apply it to the sunburnt area.
It reduces eye circles
You should not toss chamomile tea bags after using them and instead put them in the refrigerator. You can put a cooled bag over your eyes (especially after an eye massage) to dramatically brighten the eye area and reduce puffiness and eye circles. You will see the immediate difference in how your eyes look, but also how they feel.
There is something simply magical about sitting with a warm cup of tea in your hands, especially during the autumn and winter, which are coming fast. Every tea, including the chamomile, of course, is a healthier warm drink option that your body will be grateful for. And there are so many options! Even if you do not like the taste of some of the more popular teas, there are surely some that you will find that you will simply love.
