What is manzanilla tea used for?


"Tea de Manzanilla" is the Spanish term for chamomile tea, which is used to treat a variety of conditions, including anxiety, menstrual cramps, burns and insomnia. The two most common types of chamomile are German chamomile and Roman chamomile. It is one of the most widely consumed herbal teas in the world.

The healing properties of the chamomile herb come from the plant's flowers, which contain medicinal oils, such as matricin and bisabolol, among other healing substances. These substances are proven to have antifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and sedative properties. Chamomile's healing power is such that the herb is considered a drug in 26 countries.

Taken internally as a hot tea, chamomile is effective at treating digestive upset, nausea, bloating and menstrual cramps, as well as migraine headaches. Taken a half hour before bedtime, chamomile tea also treats insomnia and general sleeplessness. In pregnant women, chamomile is a natural cure for morning sickness.

Chamomile tea is also used topically for many external issues. Its muscle-relaxing and mild sedative properties make it effective for minor skin burns and rashes. Cooled chamomile tea can be used as a compress for tired or sore muscles or irritated skin. It can also be used as a medicinal mouthwash to reduce gum inflammation, heal mouth sores and keep infections and decay at bay.
