Spring is finally here and with it comes allergies. Stores have a full aisle dedicated to allergy medication. We have no choice and dedicate our time to reduce our allergy symptoms. Yet, there they are--the itchy runny nose, non-stop sneezing, and blood-shot red eyes (seriously how many times do you have to explain yourselves when people keep thinking you’re crying). School and work won’t cut down to give you slack. What is a collegiette to do? Brew a cup of chamomile tea!
Chamomile tea won’t stop your allergy symptoms, but it will help you cope with them. If you are having trouble sleeping at night because of your allergies (or if you are terrified of learning what score you received on the test) chamomile will help you sleep. The flower has properties that in turn serve as a sleeping aid. The tea is actually used to combat insomnia in a natural organic method. As a result of the calming effects, it is often used as an anxiety reliever.
It contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties and is mostly used to help with stomachaches, muscle spasms, bloating, and menstrual cramps. What else can make this hot cup of joy any better? The beauty benefits of course!
By applying cool tea to a cotton ball and gently dabbing the face will aid with healing. Pimples and sunburn will be soothed and the healing process will go much quicker.
Washing your hair with chamomile shampoo gently heals split-ends and strengthens hair to prevent breakage. Regularly washing your hair with the shampoo naturally lightens the hair. A cheap way to lighten the color of your hair without having to spend money on the shampoo is to frequently rinse the hair with cooled tea before you shampoo and condition.
The possibilities to use the tea are many, but it is also enjoyable as a simple drink. Chamomile tea is perfect alone or you can add a little honey or lemon.
