More Benefits of Camomile Tea for Health and Well-Being

The curative and preventive benefits of camomile tea, known and valued even in ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt, still hold true today. Steep a cup and enjoy camomile tea's many benefits!

Camomile (which can also be spelled 'chamomile') is a beloved herb around the world that is used topically and in herbal tisanes for its multitude of health benefits.

Here are more of the many ways this versatile, cure-all herb is so very good for our physical, mental, and emotional health and wellness.

Soothe an upset stomach with camomile tea

Camomile tisane can help ease and manage a variety of digestive issues and tummy troubles.

Brew yourself a soothing, aromatic cup of camomile tea to calm nausea, to ease digestive pain or discomfort, or to settle gassiness.

If you've been battling with a sluggish digestion, this herbal tea can relax your digestive muscles and encourage things to get working as they should again!

And, research has found camomile to be an effective treatment for diarrhea - even for young children. Camomile not only helps you recover more quickly from a bout of diarrhea, but it makes the recovery time less uncomfortable, as well!

Benefits of Camomile Tea for Baby

Camomile tea is also a helpful, well-known remedy for relieving colic in infants.

Ease menstrual cramps with camomile herbal tea

If you've been searching for a natural, safe way to ease the discomfort (or pain!) of menstrual cramps, try a cup of camomile tea.

Camomile tea has been known as a soothing remedy for menstrual cramps for many years, and current research has uncovered the science behind this tea's ability to lessen cramps at this time of the month.

Enjoying camomile tea regularly increases levels of the amino acid glycine in your body, and higher levels of glycine may help to ease menstrual cramps by reducing muscle spasms and encouraging your body (including the uterus) to relax.

And, with camomile's gentle sedative effects, as well, you'll be feeling better in no time!

Another herbal tea for colic

Besides camomile tea, South African Rooibos tea is another herbal tisane that is well-known for relieving colic in babies. Learn more about Rooibos tea for babies here.

Camomile's emmenagogue effects may also help regulate irregular periods by stimulating blood flow in the pelvic area and uterus. However, please be very cautious with camomile tea if you are currently or are trying to fall pregnant! (Learn more about possible camomile tea side effects and contraindications here.)

Camomile's topical benefits for skin and scalp

The benefits of camomile tea even include topical use... Camomile tea, when used topically, may provide benefits for your skin and scalp! Camomile can soothe insect bites, chicken pox, wounds, burns, bruises, sunburns, rashes, and itchy or inflamed skin, and it is also a popular remedy for stopping the growth of ulcers. This herb is well-known for easing the discomfort of eczema, psoriasis, acne, diaper rash, and other skin irritations, too.

Research has shown that a topical camomile solution is more effective at relieving the itch, pain, and inflammation of skin lesions than topical hydrocortisone (steroid) treatment. The camomile solution provides substantially quicker healing of the lesions, too. (All this without the potential side effects of long-term steroid use, as well!)

Benefits of Camomile Tea Bath

A camomile tea rinse is a calming, anti-inflammatory remedy for dry, flaky scalp. And, why not add camomile tea to your bath? This soothing, spa-like experience can lessen aches and pains (including sciatica and menstrual cramps), reduce swelling, calm itchy or inflamed skin, ease hay fever or sinusitis, and reduce and soothe painful, inflamed hemorrhoids.

Cosmetic benefits of camomile tea

Camomile is a popular addition to skincare and cosmetic products, thanks to this herb's soothing, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties.

And, camomile tea is well-known as a simple, inexpensive, natural hair rinse to give a sun-kissed look to blonde or light-brown hair.
