Why You Should Be Drinking Chamomile Tea

Are you a chamomile tea lover? If yes – welcome to the club! If not, we hope that the amazing benefits of this relaxing and fragrant herbal tea will change your mind.

Before we dive into all the beauty and medicinal benefits of chamomile, here are a few interesting facts about this herb:

  • Chamomile tea is made from the daisy-like flower heads of the chamomile plant. These flowers are incredibly fragrant and their aroma and flavour intensify when they are dried.
  • Ancient Egyptians used chamomile as early as 1550 BC to treat fevers, embalm the dead and for cosmetic purposes. The Romans used these flowers to treat headaches, flavour their drinks and for incense.
  • In medieval times, chamomile was known as the “plant’s physician” because of its super healing properties.
  • It takes a person a whole day to collect approx. 2kgs of fresh chamomile flowers. When dried fully, these would weigh just over 400gms.

  8. Get a natural hair spa: Say goodbye to an itchy, flaky scalp with a chamomile tea hair rinse. To moisturise your hair, you can brew some tea, add it to yoghurt and apply it before washing.
  9. Relieve achy muscles: Chamomile has strong antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties, which are effective in treating muscle pains and spasms.
  10. Banish those dark circles: Chamomile teabags can be used as a compress to relieve tired, puffy eyes and to lighten dark circles.

Why buy Himalayan Haat’s Pure Organic Chamomile teabags 

We cultivate chamomile on a small scale in our organic farm in Pauri Garhwal. The flowers are carefully picked and dried during a short-lived season of 2 months. It takes a single person a whole day to collect around 2kgs of flowers; these would end up weighing just over 400gms when fully dried! The drying process requires carefully monitored airing and shade drying for a few days.

Then comes the super busy stage two: the filling, sealing and packaging of each teabag. Did we mention that the Himalayan Haat ladies do all of this by hand? Yes, that’s right – no automated filling, sealing or tagging machines! The teabags are carefully and painstakingly prepared individually.

And that’s one more reason for you to buy our teabags – they’re a real labour of love!

How to use Himalayan Haat’s Pure Organic Chamomile teabags 

Place a teabag in a cup and pour boiling water over it. Allow it to steep for 4 to 5 minutes. For best results, cover the cup with a lid while steeping to retain the essential oils and aroma of the herbs.

For a stronger brew, we suggest you gently squeeze the teabag to release the well-steeped flavours into the cup and remove. You can add a dash of honey to sweeten. Lastly, take a whiff, kick off those shoes and enjoy your herbal tea!
