Sleep better with chamomile tea

If you love herbal tea, you most likely already know chamomile tea as the 'night-time' tea. 

This tea, with its mild sedative effects, is treasured for its ability to relieve insomnia and encourage a good night's sleep, free of nightmares. If you've been having sleepless or restless nights, a steamy, soothing mug of chamomile tea at bedtime may be just what you need to sleep soundly through the night.

Chamomile tea benefits

Insomnia and sleepless nights often go hand-in-hand with increased melancholy and worry, and may even cause depression. Chamomile tea can ease anxiety and depression, too! Read on to learn more.

Feeling anxious? Chamomile tea can help!

Today's busy, stressful world leaves many of us feeling increasingly anxious, worried, and upset - or even depressed. 

Prescription medications for anxiety can be costly and are often accompanied by unpleasant side effects, possible dependence, and even cultural stigma.

For these reasons, and for a variety of other personal and cultural reasons, many people would prefer a natural, safe, inexpensive alternative to help manage their anxiety and boost emotional health and wellness.

Is all chamomile the same?

Many types of chamomile can be found around the world, but the two types especially known for their health benefits (and typically targeted in current research) are German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) and Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile).

Traditional healers have long recommended chamomile tea as a simple, healthy (and delicious!) way to relieve anxiety, and current scientific studies support this tea's long-time reputation as a stress reliever and nerve relaxant, showing it to be an effective way to reduce anxiety and depression.

If you've been feeling anxious, stressed, or depressed, you may find soothing relief in a cup of chamomile tea. Steep a cup, and inhale its wonderful fragrance for some beneficial aromatherapy, and then feel your anxiety and worry melt away as you sip this delicious brew. Make it a part of your daily routine for full, long-lasting benefits.

Fight a cold with chamomile tea

Studies have shown that enjoying chamomile tea regularly is a healthy, natural way to support your immune system, which in turn can protect you from so many health issues - even the common cold that we all dread so much!
