Chamomile Flowers

Every lie awake in bed not being able to sleep? What about having some anxiety from just general life activities? The following is a great tea to help these and even some extra benefits!

Find a mason jar and add the following ingredients to it:

  • 1/2 cup of catnip
  • 3/4 cup of chamomile
  • 1/4 cup of lemongrass
  • 1 cup of lemon balm
  • 1/4 cup of mint

These are all dried so when you add them to the jar you can mix them all up. When you seal it up just shake it up and get it really good and mixed up. To use it, just do one tablespoon per cup of hot water. Let it steep for 3-5 minutes then enjoy!

Catnip is reported to have blood purifying properties, and also has calming effects as a sedative, but it’s mild enough for small children. In fact, it is also said to relieve the effects of colic in children as well. This plant can also be used as a digestive aid.

Chamomile is good for stomach cramps and indigestion.

Lemongrass reduces cholesterol and soothes the stomach.

Lemon balm breaks fevers, helps regulate the menstrual cycle, is antibacterial and antiviral, promotes longevity, and acts as a calming agent, much like a very weak Valium.

All this information was found here. So when you feel that you need a little calming or have an upset stomach drink a cup of this great stuff!
