Chamomile for Anger and Anxiety
Chamomile is a healing, all-purpose herb that has a variety of benefits, but particularly helps those with anxiety. If you find yourself regularly feeling uneasy at social situations or dread certain tasks throughout the day, then you may be suffering from anxiety. While it’s important to seek out mental health therapy and change your diet and lifestyle to treat and prevent anxiety, many people neglect the use of herbs that have treated this ailment for thousands of years.
While the use of Chamomile may be seen as a “folk” remedy or not as a real medicine, its benefits are, in fact, very real and measured by science. Chamomile often beats out traditional pharmaceuticals that are pushed onto us by major drug companies in the Western world.
As the saying goes: “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” Chamomile has been cultivated and plucked for so many years for a reason – it works. Before considering taking synthetical made ingredients for your mental health, think about taking something much more natural that can be plucked right from the ground.
Originally, this herb is native to the Mediterranean countries of Europe but is now widespread and can be found just about anywhere. If there are no wild species of chamomile available for you to pluck and consume in the spring and summer time, consider taking a supplement or drinking a nightly tea.
Additionally, the benefits don’t just stop at stopping and preventing anxiety. The fragrant, flowery crowns of this herb have been plucked and either dried or extracted to use topically on the skin to treat rashes and acne and to simply tone the skin, as well as internally. When ingested, chamomile is particularly effective for addressing sleeplessness, anger and inflammation and used to treat problems along the digestive tract.
Chamomile is an ancient herb that will change your life if you consume it on a regular basis; especially if you suffer from anxiety.
