Chamomile Tea Benefits for Skin, Anxiety, Brain Health

Posted by Aimee (Honolulu, Hawaii) on 05/22/2007

I've had sleep problems for as long as I can remember and it doesn't help that I'm also bipolar. I've tried everything from mind tricks and herbal remedies to over the counter pills but one thing I found that seems to work like a charm is half a cup of chamomile tea mixed with half a cup of milk. The drink should be warm, not hot, so what I do is make cup of the tea by heating it in the microwave for about 2 minutes and then adding the milk afterwards allowing the tea to heat the milk. After drinking it, I'm asleep within half an hour.

One of the best remedies for infections is strong chamomile tea. Our family has used this for many years. An elderly woman we knew years ago, fell down the stairs which resulted in an ugly infection in her hand. She was diabetic and the doctors could not heal her. My mom made a pan of strong chamomile tea and the woman soaked her hand in it for 15 minutes. Immediately you could see a difference. She continued doing this for a few days and was completely healed. It is best to make the tea fresh each time. Thank you for this excellent website!

Depression, Complexion, Upset Stomach

I think chamomile is a good contender for "king of herbs". In my experience it's excellent for:

Mild depression. One cup of chamomile tea can completely change my mood to that of being calm and optimistic. I think it contains tryptophan, which makes serotonin, hence its feel good properties.

Complexion. Makes me look healthier.

Upset stomach. Almost as good as peppermint tea.

It's amazing stuff.

Relaxation, Settles the Stomach, Revives Blonde Hair

I find it relaxing to drink a cup of camomille tea and it does help settle the stomach. My hair is sort of blonde but in the summer it has no shine due to the sun. A rinse with camille tea will revive the colour natural and not expensive.What a web site! Sue

Natural Antihistamine

Chamomile is a very good antihistimine. I use the essential oil on each side of my nose whenever I begin to feel sinus pressure, congestion, burning, etc. Works immediately. Added bonus, very healthy for skin and complexion.

I tried the Chamomile bath above for an infected cut in my foot after the doctor told me I would have to take oral antibiotics (my fourth course in 2008!) if it did not improve in two days. I bathed the cut twice a day for fifteen minutes (two tea bags in a litre of water). I also used an antibacterial cream and a paste of tumeric and honey (kept on for fifteen minutes after the chamomile bath - dyed my food yellow). Day three and the infection is nearly gone.
