Herbal Spotlight – Chamomile

6 Mar

Herbal Spotlight

Let’s talk about a herb that has strengths in the following domains:

  1. Heals the gut (protects from ulcers)
  2. When stepped as a tea, can be used as a mouthwash for gingivitis
  3. Is an antioxidant, antispasmodic and is anti-inflammatory

Can you guess? It’s Chamomile!

Generally considered a very safe herb* for both adults and kids, is great when taken as a tea using filtered water and cover while steeping for at least 3 minutes to get the antioxidant and relaxation benefits.

* Caution taking if you are hypersensitive to the asteraceae family.

This herb also pairs well with peppermint or spearmint to enhance digestion.
