Chamomile tea has been used for thousands of years to promote good health. People enjoy chamomile flowers steeped in hot water for their natural soothing qualities and ability to relieve an upset stomach. But research has discovered that chamomile tea has even more beneficial qualities than originally thought.

Chamomile is native to North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. It has a slight apple-like taste, and the scent is quite pleasant.

One of the most common uses for chamomile is relaxation. Chamomile is a nice escape from jangled nerves and caffeine jitters. The flower helps take away the day’s stress and tastes good. In the afternoon and evening, switching from coffee or black tea to caffeine-free chamomile can prevent insomnia.
