Making chamomile tea is much like making any other herbal tisane... very simple, with deliciously wonderful, healthful results!
This chamomile tea recipe can be made with a chamomile teabag, loose-leaf chamomile tea, or loose, dried chamomile blossoms.
This recipe increases well, so why not steep a nice pot of chamomile herbal tea to share with a girlfriend or your mum, or to enjoy curled up with a treasured book? Good for you in so many ways...
You can also use the chamomile tea recipe above as a chamomile scalp rinse that is a calming, anti-inflammatory remedy for dry, flaky scalp. (But don't add any extras, such as honey or lemon, to the tea - simple, plain chamomile tea is best.)
To nurture your scalp with soothing chamomile tea, simply steep and cool a cup (or more) of chamomile tea, remove the teabag or strain the tea (if you've used loose-leaf chamomile tea), and pour over your scalp after washing your hair.
Lie back and relax and, after a few minutes, rinse your hair gently with warm water. Enjoy the comforting results!
Just remember, chamomile tea is also renowned for its ability to lighten and brighten your hair color (find out more below). So, if you'd rather not add any natural highlights to your hair, you may want to avoid using chamomile tea on your hair and scalp.
Chamomile tea is delicious, beneficial for skin and scalp... and it can even be used cosmetically! Chamomile tea is well-known as an effective, healthful hair rinse for blonde or light-brown hair, giving your locks a natural sun-kissed look!
To make a chamomile hair rinse, brew a fairly large pot of chamomile tea. (You can use the chamomile tea recipe above, with double the amount of teabags or loose-leaf chamomile tea. And, of course, you'll want to avoid adding any extras, such as honey or mint, to the tea!)
After you've steeped the teabags or loose-leaf chamomile tea, strain and cool the tisane. Then, after washing and thoroughly rinsing your hair, saturate it with the cooled tea. Wrap your hair in a soft, fluffy towel for 5 to 10 minutes. Dry your hair naturally (in the sun, if possible, for some extra encouragement for those highlights).
Now, all you have to do is enjoy your hair's new sun-kissed highlights!
In your search for a natural way to add sun-kissed highlights to your hair, have you ever tried chamomile tea? If so, was it effective? Did it lighten, brighten, and soften your hair? We'd love to hear your thoughts, opinions, stories, and tips for using chamomile tea for natural highlights!
