Product Description

Refreshing and soothing, a steaming cup of chamomile tea is always welcome. Chamomilla, as its scientific name goes, is a daisy-like plant that belongs to the Asteraceae family.

Chamomile and its uses have been around since ancient times. The ancient Egyptians had dedicated it to Ra, the Sun god, healer of infectious diseases, while the ancient Greeks and the Romans used it as a medicine because of its soothing and antiseptic properties. It derives its name from the Homeric Greek "chamae” (low on the ground) and "melos” (sheep) because of its resembling a flock of sheep when in bloom and dotting the green meadows with its cheerful white flowers. Chamomile is a catch-all for a multitude of complaints from hay fever to gastrointestinal problems. It contains an abundance of herbal nutritional and beneficial elements and is rich in antioxidants, tannins, iron, magnesium, and Vitamin C. In a world that functions under the constant threat and presence of stress, chamomile proves beneficial as a stress reliever.

Delicate in aroma and mild in taste, a chamomile infusion 30 minutes before turning in, leads to stress-free, quality sleep thanks to chamomile’s sedative and muscle-relaxing action. Chamomile infusions are ideal for alleviating symptoms linked to the irritable bowel syndrome, increase white cell production, which improve the functions of our immune system, and offers effective relief from headaches. Since ancient times, chamomile has proved itself as a powerful agent against skin acne, irritation, and fungal infections. Chamomile compresses applied on the affected skin area alleviate such problems. Pure Natura’ organic chamomile is hand-harvested on the meadows of the island of Crete. It is dried with extra care so that its sensory traits and healing attributes may remain intact. Make chamomile infusions a part of your day, benefit from its gifts, and close your eyes: the Greek countryside is here to lull you to sleep and health.

How To Enjoy
A chamomile infusion soothes and relieves stress. Add one heaped teaspoonful of chamomile to one cup of boiled water and let it steep for a few minutes. When ready, strain and enjoy hot or cold with or without honey or sugar.
