Chamomile at tea time or anytime is good for your spa and massage practice clients
By Jean Shea on Jul 18, 2016
Chamomile is used in teas around the globe, but the herb with its apple scent has many other benefits besides relaxing you. There actually is a range of species of Chamomile; the most popular being German and Roman, explains herbwisdom.com. You can trace the use of Chamomile back thousands of years. Then Greeks, Romans and Egyptians used the herb for anti-inflammatory benefits as well as for calming nerves. Over time, the healing effects of Chamomile found their way into other treatments to soothe stomach aches, calm muscle spasm and help prevent and treat colds
Chamomile’s anti-inflammatory properties make it a common ingredient in skincare products. Its antioxidant-rich flavonoids help the skin recover from sun damage and boost elastin and collage production. Azulene, a liquid hydrocarbon present in the essential oil of the Chamomile flower, also is anti-inflammatory and soothing.
