White, natural, not racist, Chamomile flower stands tall today among humans. It is blissful to look at and even more blissful to consume. Chamomile is a flowering herb that has known to be humanity’s kin since a long time for recreation and healing. It is one of those flowers in nature that has no intention but to offer. On the other hand, we have mint. The word itself invites a cold breeze and a feeling of refreshment because we all are familiar with how mint works. Be it drinks, or tea or herbal potions, mint just like chamomile has always been a friend too. You can only imagine the magic when both come together in the form of Chamomile mint tea.
“When all is mellow and peaceful, you know it’s a chamomile world.”
The use of chamomile as tea goes back to ancient Egypt. There, it was served as a remedy for cough and cold. There are two types of chamomile – German Chamomile and Roman Chamomile. Humans have always sought out healing and recreation from nature, in the form of herbs. These herbs serve myriad purposes, including healing, recreation and fostering of spiritual wisdom. Chamomile too heals an individual by routine use. In fact, it has always been known as an excellent healing herb, both traditionally and non-traditionally.
Known in India as Pudina, mint has always been used as a stomach appetizer or to make rejuvenating drinks. Its primary applications are:
- Treating stomach issues or sudden chest aches
- Used a component in aromatic and essential oil therapies
- Used as a constituent in lime juices and fresh fruit juices in the summer
- Soothing health discomforts through use as a paste, by adding it to bathing water, by brewing it with water, etc.
- As a mouth freshener in the summer for its refreshingly cool flavour, providing relief to the oesophagus
All in all, it’s a super balance of health and taste.
