Todays' Harvest: CHAMOMILE
Updated: Apr 5, 2019
Skin Ailments And Wounds
The phytochemicals in CHAMOMILE have 3 effects on the central nervous system that contribute to the herb’s anxiolytic and sedative properties, which relieve symptoms of GAD (Generalized anxiety Disorder), decreases irritability and is anti depressant.
So…it’s not just “all in your head” when it comes to the calming properties of chamomile.
I harvest these open flowers daily, put them in a drying basket- and use the dried flowers for tea. VERY RELAXING.
While CHAMOMILE TEA is quite calming- it is also effective as a FACIAL SPRAY – fading spots, acne scars and fights breakouts when used topically. With its’ anti inflammatory and anti septic properties, CHAMOMILE TEA is a powerhouse of antioxidants, and protects the skin from free radical damage.

Topical face spray recipe:
Allow the chamomile to steep for 15 minutes. Strain into a clean bowl or mug and allow to cool completely. To make the face mist, pour chamomile essential oil, lavender essential oil, witch hazel, and jojoba (if using) into a glass spray bottle. Fill the rest of the way with chamomile tea, cap, and shake.
