just savoring the flavor

I love using anything home made. I had heard how camomile is so good for you. So I just sprinkled some seeds (I live in southern CA ). Soon I had 2-3 feet tall plants with beautiful flowers. The air smelt beautiful and I would collect some everyday and dried them. Now I have my own homegrown organic camomile available.

Some comments about amounts of chamomile tea...
by: Della @ The Tea Talk

Thank you for your question! I'm glad to hear that chamomile tea is helping you feel better and less anxious, too! :)

For how much chamomile tea to drink in the evening... Many who enjoy chamomile tea (just for its taste, or for its health and wellness benefits) typically drink one or more cups per day - usually no more than four cups daily.

When you're introducing a new tea to your diet, it may help to start with smaller amounts, until you 'get to know' the tea, and can tell how your body feels about this new tea. (Some people find that introducing very large amounts of chamomile tea into their diets very quickly can lead to feelings of nausea, so starting more slowly may be a better choice!)

Others find that drinking chamomile tea too close to bedtime means having to get up in the night to use the washroom, but enjoying your last cup of tea earlier in the evening may prevent this.

And, be sure to read up on potential chamomile tea side effects, and check with your healthcare provider before adding this tea to your routine, just to be sure it's a good and safe choice for you. :)

Our other readers will have suggestions and comments, too, about how much chamomile tea during the day helps them sleep better! Please join the conversation if chamomile tea helps you manage your insomnia... :)

Manjari, thank you so much for sharing your story with us! How wonderful, that you're growing your own chamomile for tea!

Do you notice that your own homegrown chamomile is tastier than store-bought chamomile tea?

Your story is an inspiration for those of us who have been considering starting our own tea gardens... ;)

Thank you so much for sharing your interesting experience!
