Dried chamomile is the dried flowers of the chamomile plant (Matricaria chamomilla or Chamaemelum nobile), which is a member of the daisy family. Chamomile is native to Europe, but it is now widely grown throughout the world and is popularly used in traditional medicine, skincare products, and teas.
Dried chamomile flowers are small and white with a yellow center and a sweet, fruity fragrance. They are rich in flavonoids and terpenoids, which are powerful antioxidants that help to protect the body against oxidative stress and inflammation.
Some of the potential health benefits of dried chamomile for humans include:
Promoting relaxation: Chamomile is known for its calming and soothing properties and is often used to promote relaxation and reduce stress and anxiety.
Supporting digestive health: Chamomile has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties that can help to reduce digestive discomfort and support healthy digestion.
Reducing inflammation: The anti-inflammatory properties of chamomile may help to reduce inflammation and pain in the body.
Supporting skin health: Chamomile is often used in skincare products due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which can help to soothe and protect the skin.
Dried chamomile flowers can be brewed into a tea, added to baths, or used topically in skincare products. They are generally considered safe for human consumption, but they may cause allergic reactions in some people, particularly those with allergies to plants in the daisy family.
