Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 10 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. Not only do I have hopes of teaching the masses, I too, have learned a lot during my research on different topics! There's always new & updated information in the herbal & essential oil worlds. There are blogs on herbs, essential oils, nutrition, supplements, different modalities of healing and just a little bit of everything!! Maybe in reading my blogs, just one person will come away with a bit of knowledge that they might be able to help themselves or another human being, I would consider that to be a great blessing.....

Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. I am now in Arizona and I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal business!! We now have Herbs 4 Health!! Providing numerous herbs....herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....minerals....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.

The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

DISCLAIMER: All the information in these blogs do not diagnose, treat or heal any type illness or disease.

Chamomile - The Herb - Gentle, Relaxing & Healing

One of the most ancient & versatile medicinal herbs available is the lovely delicate chamomile! Not enough can be said about this gentle herb that seems to have an endless amount of uses. It is safe for enough for babies & children. It's anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, and an antioxidant. It can help with pain, muscle spasms, pre-menstrual pain, stress, tension, anxiety, anorexia, ADD, nausea, acid reflux, gout, a tonic for the liver & digestive tract, IBS, gastrointestinal spasms & inflammatory diseases of the gastrointestinal tract!!

It can be highly beneficial for skin inflammation, it's gentle enough to use for sties & eye infections, cuts, itching, scraps, boils, bug bites, burns, ulcers, wounds, bacterial infections of the mouth & gums. It can help calm emotions, relax you to help you sleep better & help with physical stress.

The scent alone is just heavenly -- a sweet, apple-like aroma. I personally love it!! Chamomile has been used for nearly 5,000 yrs with almost no known negative side effects.

It's a natural allergy fighter for hay fever. It can help with arthritis & rheumatic pain, it fights free radicals & can help prevent cell mutation.

Use with caution if allergic to ragweed. It also contains natural blood thinners (coumarins), so avoid if taking prescription blood thinners.

A prized ingredient in our Sandman's Tea!
