Plus, working with and connecting to whole herbs like chamomile can seriously boost your mood. I mean, just looking at it makes you smile. It’s beautiful, fragrant, naturally sweet, and your best friend when you want to relax.
Chamomile has a distinct apple flavor with a lot to offer your self-care routine. If you don't have it on hand, you can always try our delicious, soothing blend Chamomile Mint!
Make a STRONG and healthful brew by steeping 1 oz chamomile for 10-15 minutes in 185° water. Drink 2-3 cups of tea daily to support the nervous system and reduce stress.
Brew before bathing to avoid the mess. Just add one cup of chamomile in a one-quart jar of hot water steep until cool, strain and pour into bathtub. You skin will be silky and smell really sweet, promise.
3. Eye pack
Soothe those computer screen-looking eyes and look away for a sec with a warm chamomile press. Fill two compostable tea bags with chamomile, secure, and dampen with warm water. Then lie on your back and chill.
Pro tip: If you don’t have compostable tea bags, you can always rig up a coffee filter or muslin cloth and tie with the string. We keep it real.
