Chamomile is a well-known and well loved herbal tea. Because it is so safe and gentle, we often overlook how powerful and potent this plant really is! Chamomile is a relaxant nervine, meaning that it is calming, soothing, relaxing of muscles and tension. It is gentle enough to use throughout the day, and strong enough to help bring on sleep.
Chamomile is also a powerful digestive aide. It is especially helpful for folks who have sharp, stabbing, cramping pains, along with indigestion, belching, hiccupping, and gas. Chamomile can be used daily to help relieve digestive symptoms and promote healing of the intestinal tract.
It is also a wonderful ally for women in the premenstrual time. It soothes irritability, eases cramping of the utuerus, and helps move the heat and heaviness of the pelvis to promote comfort.
Chamomile is known as a plant for children, both children in age and the child in us that has tantrums about life as an adult. This is medicine for the part of us that is overreactive, dysregulated, and "rammy" as my Dad would say.
