Chamomile tea

Postby RunningBear on May 16th, 2011, 10:39 am

Chamomile to me, is a dingy weed and its tea tastes like warm, flavored bleach. :( But after hearing someone extoll its virtues as a sedative, I decided to give it one more try. The results have been spectacular. After adding boiling water, I have been keeping a dish over the tea cup for 10 minutes before drinking. My sleep (for the past two weeks of drinking this tea at night) has been warm, deep and restful, and I have been waking up very refreshed, and completely relaxed. I threw out the Tylenol PM which I sometimes use. There is a definate de-stress effect in this tea. I am past the anxiety phase of BFS, but wish I would have tried it back then. Just wanted to share. :D

I actually bought some chamomile tea a few days ago, tried to drink it.....but it was just so bad, I couldnt get it down.....went to Kava instead....thats much more tolerable, but didnt seem to help me much.....Maybe i'll have to just suck it up and put down the chamomile, haha....

Chamomile worked pretty good for me for a while, but a supplement that helped me more for sleeping is Choline (amino acid) - choline levels are often inversely related to anxiety.

Every now and then I love a good tea, but by the time I would put enough sugar in it I was afraid it killed the purpose. Now I use Agave, which is kinda like honey. Both have their own health benefits. Give it a try, it might make it more palatable.

I put a couple of table spoons of honey and some cinnamon in mine and it helps the taste. Works great.

You guys should all try the Sleepytime Extra tea by Celestial! It's amazing! It has Chamomile, Tilia Estrella, and Valerian in it. It will put you to sleep. I love it!
