The Natural Healing of Chamomile

The Natural Healing of Chamomile

The Chamomile flower is well-known for its soothing, relaxing and calming properties. Usually, chamomile is well known for teas and an aid in winding down a body or to help with a restful sleep. In skincare, chamomile is often used to alleviate skin irritation, redness, and inflammation. It can be particularly beneficial for sensitive or reactive skin types. Here are some other interesting facts around Chamomile and what other benefits it has for healthy skin:

Anti-Inflammatory Benefits: Chamomile contains compounds with anti-inflammatory properties, making it effective in reducing skin inflammation.

Antioxidant-Rich, Natural Extracts: Chamomile is rich in antioxidants, such as flavonoids, which is full of anti-aging properties and helps protect the skin from oxidative stress. This also contributes to a more youthful complexion.

Gentle Hydration: Because of its gentle and light oil chemistry, Chamomile can help hydrate the skin without causing excess oiliness. Its mild, hydrating properties make it suitable for individuals with dry or combination skin, adding a touch of moisture without clogging pores.

Natural Anti-Microbial Properties: Finally, Chamomile possesses natural antimicrobial properties, which can help cleanse and protect the skin. It is often used in formulations for individuals with acne-prone skin to help prevent bacterial growth and maintain clear, vibrant skin.

Whether used in the form of chamomile-infused oils, hydrosols, or as an active ingredient in creams, lotions, and in our case, body butters and soaps, chamomile remains a gentle and versatile botanical that has been cherished for its skincare benefits and we plan to continue incorporating this beautiful, relaxing herb into our organic collection in the years ahead.
