Chamomile tea is loaded with antioxidants and it is often ingested as a tea for calming purposes and to soothe the digestive tract. A great beverage for after dinner and especially useful just before bed.
This versatile herb is also an ingredient in health and beauty products. It is soothing to the skin and it is a very common way to treat dark circles under the eyes. Chamomile is used to infuse oils for salves, lotions, lip balms, and other cosmetics.
