Small batch herbalism harvested on the farm.
Chamomile (Anthemis nobilis and Matricaria recutita) This small and gentle plant has been long used as a beverage tea but is equally valued for its powerful medicinal properties. It is one of the best children’s herbs. It has been used for treating children’s colic, nervous stress, infections and stomach disorders. One of chamomile’s major constituents is azulen volatile oil. Azulen contains a whole complex of active principles that serve as anti inflammatory and antipyretic agents. It’s medicinal action is most obvious in three major areas: the nervous system, the immune system and the digestive system. The flowers make a wonderfully calming tea that is good for easing stress and nervousnes, promoting sleep and aiding digestion.
