The chamomile (Anthemis Nobilis) flower is an age-old remedy with a ton of health and beauty benefits. Similar to ginseng, it has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-allergenic and sedative properties. The plant's healing power comes from its daisy-like flowers, which contain good oils, antioxidants, and flavonoids. Best of all, it comes in a range of forms: tea, salve, vapour and lotion, to name a few.
Chamomile is best known as a mild muscle relaxant. It relieves restlessness and stress, and helps insomniacs to fall asleep more easily.
In vapourised form, it can alleviate cold symptoms and allergies. As an excellent digestive aid, it faciliates bowel movements, controls bloating, and relieves nausea. This power flower also helps to balance blood sugar levels, which is great news for anyone who craves chocolate after every meal – sip on this organic herbal tea instead!
While it's famous for its soothing brew, chamomile has a host of beauty benefits. Along with dealing with inflammation, it can ease eczema, minor burns, and sunburn – and it does so quickly. Because it is infused with healing and moisturising properties, it is useful in fighting acne and the signs of ageing. Cooled chamomile tea can be used as a compress to soothe tired or puffy eyes. Finally, it's a hair lightener, making it a great alternative for those looking for non-toxic ways to update their colour.
