    Chamomile Tea

    "To ease the body's pain, the Lord sent chamomile." This line from a nineteenth century poem validates how important chamomile has been in alleviating pain and discomfort throughout time. In fact, the medicinal use of chamomile dates back even further, to the days of the Romans, who relied on its antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties. Today, chamomile tea is one of the most effective medicinal teas know. The gentle herb makes it suitable for children and adults, and the tea can be safely used on a regular basis. To be prepared when stomaches, insomnia, sore throats or cramps strike, keep a supply of chamomile flowers on hand. Be sure to buy "Matricaria recutita", or German chamomile; this variety contains the highest concentration of the essential oils responsible for giving chamomile its healing power.

    Preparation of the tea
    In a teapot, place tsp. of chamomile flowers per cup of water. Boil the water, then let it cool slightly (using boiling water will cause the various therapeutic compounds in chamomile to evaporate). For best results, steep
    the tea less than 5 minutes.

      I drink 5 or 6 cups of red bush tea every day. It originally comes from Africa and is full of antioxidants which helps repair damaged cells. Green tea is also good for general health although unlike red bush it does have caffeine so I just have 1 or 2 cups a day.
