The benefits of chamomile have been celebrated for thousands of years. From ancient Egypt to Ancient Greece, to modern day, people swear by chamomile tea as soothing bedtime remedy. If getting enough sleep is difficult for you or your children, try making a soothing cup of chamomile tea just before bedtime.
Chamomile contains Chamazulene, an aromatic chemical compound that boasts anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. So if you have trouble sleeping due to pain or leg cramps, chamomile might just be the natural remedy that you’ve been looking for.
Chamomile also contains the antioxidant, apigenin which has been shown to promote sleepiness and alleviate insomnia. If you or your children are experiencing stomach upset, chamomile tea can help to soothe the stomach as well. Next time you’re having trouble sleeping due to aches and pains, stomach upset, or wakefulness, brew yourself a soothing cup of chamomile and say goodnight to insomnia.
