Camomile Benefits

Starting my day off with a selfmade camomile ice tea
Since there are a lot of girls out there waisting lots of money on these 'super efficient social media sponsored' detoxes to purify their body, but with the main aim to lose weight, I want to show you that you don't have to spend all of your hard earned money. 
Everybody has been sick at least once I guess. And what kind of tea have you consumed? Yes, Camomile, right? That's because the active ingredient in camomile essential oil, known as bisabolol , has a great number of anti-irritant, -inflammatory and -microbial properties.

This simple tea can help you with : 

  • Insomnia and other sleeping disorders
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Muscle twiches
  • Wounds burns and scrapes
  • Skin conditions: Psoriasis, eczema, chickenpox or diaper rash
  • Stomach problems: menstrual cramos, stomach flu and ulcers

How to use camomile: 

  • Stomach Cramps: 
As camomile is high in anti-spasmodic and -inflammatory it has been found to be very effective in treating stomach and intestinal cramps. Prepare yourself a cup in the morning and in the evening while the symptoms are present. 
  • Insomnia:
Instead of taking sleeping pills, make yourself a teacup 30 to 45 minutes before sleeping to fight sleeping disorders like insomnia. 
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome:
Because a bloated belly isn't the best thing for summer, drinking camomile tea can relieve excessive gas and bloating in the intestines. It also helps relieve irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, gastroenteritis and stomach flu. 
  • Migraines:
Everybody suffering from migraines knows how straining this can be. When you start noticing the symptoms, drink some camomile. For me, that's when the back of my head starts to 'burn' and when I get a flickering in the right eye. Camomile works best before the real headaches starts. 
  • PMS and Cramps:
Due to it's high amount of anti-irritant,-inflammatory and -microbial properties, camomile has been found to be beneficial in treating PMS and cramps. 
  • Burns and Scrapes:
Its anti-inflammatory contents help you treating burns. Simply rub a small amount of oil gently across the burned area once a day. 
For scrapes and burns, yo can also brew a stronger tea by adding 3 tea bags to one cup. Let the tea cool down and use it as a compress on the wounded areas. You can also use it for bladder infections. When I was a little fairy I had this a lot and camomile helped a lot fighting this infection. 
  • Lightening your skin: 
Add two camomile tea bags to 1/2 L of boiling water in a pot and place your face above the steaming pot of camomile tea. A normal bath in water mixed with camomile tea works as well. 
  • Reduce dark circles around eyes:
Camomile is a great remedy to relieve eye fatigue and dark circles. Remove your two teabags after 5 minutes from the warm water and let them cool to room temperature. After, you may place them on your eyes at night as a compress. Wake up and look fresh. 

So, instead of spending lots of money on social media detox plans, save your money and go for camomile. It also tastes very well as an icetea, especially during these hot summer days. Prepare your normal tea, let it cool down , add some lemons or limes along with crushed ice and you got the perfect natural purifying drink for summer. 

While camomile is a real magical drink, high doses can still be dangerous to some individuals. 
Some side effects of overdose include drowsiness, vomiting or skin reactions.  People allergic to ragweed pollen or with hay fever may have difficulties using camomile. 
Pregnant women should avoid camomile as well as it's considered to be an abortifacient (a substance that induces abortion). While taking blood thinners, avoid camomile as well as it contains coumarin, which is also a blood thinner.
