Don't Miss These Chamomile Skin Care Benefits

Posted by on 3/12/2014 to Ingredient Knowledge
Ahh, calming chamomile is one of my personal favorites when it comes to tea. If the everyday realities of the world have you stressed or struggling to sleep, a cup of chamomile tea every night can help due to its well known relaxation properties. While the soothing affects of chamomile tea are widely known for the body, there are also many chamomile skin care benefits, as well.

Many forms, many uses.

Chamomile in its many forms is a highly effective ingredient. Many skin care products can be infused with chamomile extract, chamomile essential oil, or chamomile tea. Chamomile has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory abilities that help to decongest clogged pores, making chamomile one of the best herbal extracts for acne. We use it in our face masks and clarifying moisturizer for this reason. Chamomile is also rich in flavonoids and antioxidants effective in protecting the skin against free radicals that cause aging. With it’s earthy and mildly sweet aroma, chamomile essential oil is great for relaxing aromatherapy.

Among the other skin conditions that chamomile can help address are rosacea, eczema, rashes and sometimes even insect bites. It can also help relieve the discomforts of sunburn. Another lesser known fact about chamomile is that it’s also an all-natural bleaching agent and can help to naturally even your complexion.

How to use chamomile for your skin.

To use chamomile at home, add a few drops of the essential oil to bath water, or use bath salts or teas with chamomile to promote relaxation and soak in the soothing, anti-inflammatory benefits. If you are using essential oil, remember you only need a few drops, they really go a long way! If you are using our Chamomile & Willow Bark Mask at home activate it with milk instead of water and you’ll get an amazing skin soothing treatment. The properties of milk reinforce the natural beneficial components of chamomile – together they can cleanse, exfoliate, heal, moisturize and refresh the skin.
