Chamomile ★★

Chamomile is an old and effective natural sleep aid used in many countries around the world. It has the ability to act as a mild sedative because it has a compound called apigenin, which is a type of antioxidant.

It’s a great for treating upset stomachs in both kids and adults and is very good at calming your mind when you’re stressed. Its also a good alternative for calming menstrual cramps, muscle spasms, inflammation in the intestinal tract and inflammation all over the body.

It is an anti bacterial, anti fungal and anti spasm food/herb and a potentially strong cancer fighter. It comes in teabags or you can buy the dried flowers and steep your own tea.
