Chamomile tea is known since centuries for its healing properties and outstanding health benefits. Home grown chamomile tea can offer unadulterated benefits while carrying the potential of becoming a hobby in itself.

Chamomile, the power herb, has been recognized for over 2000 years for its exceptional calming and healing properties. Owing its origin to Western Europe, West Asia, India and Egypt, chamomile has been widely used in medicines, cosmetics and fragrances and more. The herb derives its name from the Greek word Earth Apple, mainly because it mimics the scent of apples when dried. Chamomile in the present century has proven effective in addressing a range of common issues like…

  • Soothing cuts and wounds
  • Easing menstrual cramps
  • Relieving acidity, indigestion, diarrhea, constipation and abdominal pain
  • Relieving colic pain in babies
  • Clearing sinuses (through inhalation of vapors)
  • Clearing throat and mouth ulcers through gargling
  • Soothing skin rashes, sores, burns and scalds
  • Highlighting and brightening hair through rinsing and many more

Over the years, laboratory tests that were conducted on chamomile has revealed that the bio-active compounds found in this herb has a very high potential in treating a range of otherwise serious issues like inflammatory conditions, osteoporosis, seizure disorders, diabetes etc. in the near future

Chamomile tea, which is a rather new addition to the list of uses of this miracle herb, has its unique set of health advantages that are best when experienced firsthand. A cup a day is good enough to improve quality of sleep, ease nasal congestion, reduce stress and add a healthy glow to your skin.

Things get even better if you grow chamomile on your back yard and experience unadulterated benefits from the same. The process is not difficult at all. All you have to do is start with a suitable variety of chamomile and sow them in a sunny and well drained area within your perimeters. There are basically two types of chamomiles that you can choose from…

  • The Roman Chamaemelum Nobile
  • The German Matricaria Chamomilla

While both of these varieties bear the same level of excellence, you can always consider the Roman variety for the sheer ease of handling in comparison with their German counterparts.

Chamomile is a very safe herb which is one of the reasons why it is perfect to grow them in huge patches in households that have young children and pets as active members. In fact, growing chamomile is steadily becoming a hobby with thousands of home owners across the world. Considering that the herb grows fairly easily with minimum efforts, indulging in a cup of fresh home grown brew can be an easy possibility for all.
