We think of Chamomile as a calm, relaxing, and stomach-soothing, tea-drinking experience. Chamomile’s benefits, however, extend well beyond the breadth of relaxing with a cup of tea.

Due to its remarkable ability to soothe the skin from dryness and irritation, Chamomile is a key ingredient—in extract or oil form—in many of our natural skin products. A natural antiseptic, Chamomile’s antibacterial properties clean and protect wounds from infections and its anti-inflammatory properties can actually reduce swelling from rashes. It is especially effective for those with sensitive skin.

Chamomile is also effective in soothing minor burns and sunburn. With a pleasing, gentle scent, it is often used in aromatherapy as it calms and relaxes the body and mind.
