3 Soothing Benefits of Chamomile
Chamomile, the daisy-like plant, has been used as an herbal infusion for medical
purposes for thousands of years: the Egyptians used it as a cure for high fevers and the Romans used it as incense. The Grecians and Spaniards were particularly fond of its aroma as well, claiming it had the flavoring and scent of a sweet apple. In fact, “chamomile” was derived from the Latin word meaning “earth apple.”
Is this, perhaps, this origin of the common saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”?
Yes and here are 3 reasons why.
1) Immunity Boost
Being struck with a cold of or flu can leave you feeling depleted of energy. With a tired body and achy muscles, it can be hard to muster enough strength to fight off the icky illness. Chamomile can solve this problem.
Because it is packed with anti-bacterial properties, chamomile inactivates toxic bacteria like staphylococcus and streptococcus; these cause serious viral infections like pneumonia. It dramatically boosts the body’s immune system to help ward off and fight illnesses. When consumed in tea form, chamomile can also help speed up the recuperation and recovery time.
2) Happy Healing
No one likes waking up in the middle of the night feeling like they have swallowed a cactus, or rising in the morning with a dry, scratchy throat. Chamomile can solve this problem.
Because chamomile is an antimicrobial agent, it helps to treat infections and inflammations both topically and internally. Used as a mouthwash or gargle, chamomile helps to quickly reduce inflammations of mucous tissue and soothe sore throats.
3) Calming chamomile
Anyone who has experienced a lengthy cold or flu knows how difficult sleep can be with an achy body and constant cough. Chamomile can solve this problem.
Chamomile increases relaxation and relieves stress without causing drowsy or sedative side effects. Some substances in the herb influence the same part of the brain (the pituitary) as stress and nervousness. Chamomile is ideal for using during cold and flu season as it can be consumed to help induce sleep, relax muscles and even sooth aching bodies.
