Organic Nile Delta Camomile Tea - Loose Leaf

The best quality Camomile comes from the Nile Delta in Egypt.  Camomile makes a pleasant aromatic tea with a fruity flavor, enhanced by sugar or honey. It is often sipped for relief of health problems ranging from toothache to nervousness. Camomile has also been noted as beneficial for soothing headaches and is a natural relaxing herb known to assist the restless and those suffering from insomnia. In many circles Camomile is called nighty night tea or sleepy tea on account of its natural properties which promote restfulness and drowsiness. It is also known to assist digestive disorders by settling the stomach and calming the nerves.

The plant's botanical name Matricaria, is derived from the Latin term for womb because it was once used as an herb to treat female troubles. Camomile is derived from ancient Greek and translates as "Ground Apple" in reference to the fruity aroma.

Some Health Effects Chamomile is Purported to Have:

  • Digestive aid (relieves acid indigestion, abdominal pain, and intestinal gas, and helps in cases of diarrhea, constipation, and peptic ulcers).
  • Anti-allergenic (unless you are prone to hayfever).
  • Relaxing and sedative-like, including calming restless children and hectic-lifestyle-frazzled adults.
  • Anti-inflammatory and antibacterial.
  • Easing colic and teething pain in babies.
  • Relieving headache and reducing fever in colds and flu.

External uses include an eye wash that is reported by some to soothe conjunctivitis, a hot compress to soothe burns and scalds, and a hair rinse to brighten hair.

For the best brew, Nile Delta Camomile should brew in boiling water for 5-7 minutes.
