Chamomile. The name alone conveys a fresh, almost brisk aroma, and a sweetly soothing flavour. And one of the best effects of chamomile? A nice solid, rejuvenating sleep! Sydney Tea has an awesome Premium Chamomile selection to choose from, ready to supply you with that sleep you need. So, let us take a look at chamomile, this incredible ingredient, and how Sydney Tea’s tea collection can help you hit the hay the right way.
Chamomile’s history and health benefits
Our modern English word “chamomile” comes from the Greek word, “chamaimelon” meaning “earth apple”. A fitting name, because Sydney Tea’s chamomile certainly is reminiscent of the sweet, subtly brisk and refreshing flavor of apples and then some! Sydney Tea’s chamomile is much more than just refreshing, it is produced from Egyptian chamomile. Certified organic Egyptian chamomile. Egypt produces some of the finest chamomile in the world and it has long had a spiritual and medicinal role in Egyptian society. In the Nile delta, chamomile was attested to back in 1550 BC in the Ebers Papyrus, an antiquated codex that mentions some of chamomile’s health and spiritual benefits. In ancient Egypt, this wonderful herb was used as an offering to the gods, was used in embalming rituals and practices and was also used medicinally. Gods, humans and the dead all enjoyed the benefits, aroma, flavor and effects of chamomile. Talk about a popular herb!
Now, let’s take a look at just how much of a panacea chamomile can be for us living folk! Firstly, chamomile’s most famous attribute. Sleep. Some studies have shown that chamomile can reduce anxiety and aid in relaxation. So whether you plan on counting sheep right away or are just trying to slow down your pace for the day, chamomile is your drink of choice. Some other potential benefits of Chamomile include reducing menstrual pain. This one may also help assist in reducing the anxiety and pain that can result from the menstrual cycle, too. Chamomile is good for bones. Some studies have suggested that chamomile helps to slow and possibly prevent osteoporosis. Chamomile has also been found to reduce inflammation and can help fight off infections, arthritis and in some cases even depression.And make sure to give your chamomile a few nice deep inhalations of its vapors, because some studies suggest that the steam from chamomile tea can help pacify some cold symptoms. This makes chamomile an ideal drink if you feel a cold or other illness coming on. Not only can it help your body recover by aiding in pleasant sleep, but can also potentially help to ease some of the more bothersome symptoms of illness.
