Chamomile Tea and its Benefits
Recently my sister shared this valuable information with me about chamomile tea and its benefits. I thought it is very important to share it with all you girls here ☺ Hope you like this article as it is quite different from my usual reviews on cosmetics and bath products.
Chamomile is a common name for several daisy like plants [White petals and yellow centred flowers] and it is the national flower of Russia. It was found that extracts from these initially helped with sleep and to reduce stress. The most common form is the availability of Chamomile Tea and that seems to cure more than 100 ailments. I was really surprised when I came to know about this as I was completely new to this topic and the list of cures really surprised me.
The flowers of this herb chamomile are infused in hot water to make a soothing tea. As with any herbal infusion, freshly boiled water poured over loose dried flowers from the plant steeps a strong, fragrant tea. Teabags are an appropriate substitute if loose flowers or an infuser is unavailable. Active ingredients include alphabisabolol, matricin, and bioflavonois in the flower’s light blue oil. Since it has such low toxicity, chamomile tea is recommended for children for colds, insomnia, or an upset stomach.
It has been used through ages for its anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties. Some of the diseases for which Chamomile is being suggested are common cold, diarrhea, skin problems, haemorrhoids, quality of life in cancer, sleep aid, vaginitis and wound healing. Though scientific research is still going on to prove the results on animals and human beings for all the above ailments, people who have already been taking the tea have listed few benefits.
Benefits of Chamomile Tea Review
- • Improves Immunity
• Gives relief from common cold
• Chamomile tea helps prevent skin inflammation and eczema.
• Chamomile tea helps relieve back pain
• It relaxes the nervous system.
• It soothes the stomach and pain associated with it.
• Relieves menstrual cramps in women.
• Relieves muscle spasms.
People take this with a drop of honey in the tea. The taste is neutral – neither too strong nor too light and it claims to give a calming effect.
On contradiction to all the above mentioned benefits there is also little confusion regarding the effects of the tea. Few of them are skin rashes, allergy especially in the skin, drowsiness and as worse as miscarriage. So it is better for pregnant women to avoid this. No experiments during pregnancy.
Though the negative effects has not been proven yet I thought it is necessary to list them as well. If any of you have tried it before or even heard about it benefits please kindly share the information with us. As all I have heard so far is positive feedback from people who have used. This tea is available in many organic stores in India as well.
When I come across any organic store next time I will visit them for sure and will check out this tea.
