Organic fresh dried German Chamomile flower tops (Matricaria Chamomilla) beautiful for herbal tea or crafting natural soaps and lotions.
Chamomile is recognized the world over as a soothing, sleep-aiding herbal tea. It also has been widely used to soothe irritated or inflamed skin. Chamomile seems to make it into most of our tea blends here on the farm. We also use sachets along with lavender for babies to help them calm down and fall asleep happy. These same ingredients also make it into their bath water to help sooth and calm them, and we follow with our organic herbal powders.
Here is a quick simple chamomile tea recipe that I use all the time it will make 1 cup:
1 large pinch chamomile
1 small pinch spearmint
1 small pinch lemon balm
A pinch is just that, stick your fingers in the jar and pull out a pinch, doesn’t need to be exact and this is the beauty of blending your own as you go. Add this to your tea infuser and steep in hot, but not boiling water for 5-10 minutes. When done empty the used herbs into your compost bucket. I use a metal mesh tea infuser, or my bamboo infuser right in my tea mug. Works like a charm! I keep small blue antique Ball canning jars on the back of my kitchen counter so they are handy at a moments notice to brew a cup of tea. This is also nice iced too...
