Today, I want to share with you a delightful recipe for a lemon balm and chamomile tummy calm tea, a magical potion that has become a treasured ally in my journey towards well-being.
In the hustle and bustle of our modern lives, it’s easy to forget the healing power that lies right outside our doorstep. Nature, with its abundant gifts, offers a soothing balm for our weary souls. As someone who deeply appreciates the wonders of the natural world, I find solace in the gentle embrace of medicinal herbs.
Medicinal Benefits of Lemon Balm & Chamomile
Imagine a cup of warm, fragrant tea that not only delights your senses but also brings comfort to your body and mind. Lemon balm and chamomile, the stars of this brew, have long been celebrated for their calming properties and remarkable ability to soothe our troubled stomachs. Combining their powers, we create a calm tea that is not only delicious but also a natural remedy for those suffering from a nervous tummy or stress-related irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Let’s start with lemon balm, a herb known for its bright lemony scent and delicate leaves. Its calming effects on the nervous system make it a perfect ally in times of stress and anxiety. Lemon balm has been used for centuries as a gentle sedative, helping to calm restlessness and promote relaxation. Its antispasmodic properties are particularly beneficial for soothing the muscles of the digestive tract, making it a reliable companion for those experiencing tummy troubles caused by stress or anxiety.
Chamomile, on the other hand, needs no introduction. Revered for its ability to induce tranquility and relaxation, chamomile has been cherished for generations as a herbal remedy. Its delightful floral aroma and delicate golden flowers make it a delight to behold. Chamomile’s soothing effect on the digestive system is well-documented, making it a trusted friend for those seeking relief from indigestion, bloating, or general discomfort.
Calm Tea Recipe
Now, let’s dive into the recipe for this enchanting tea.
What You Will Need to Make Calm Tea
- 1 teaspoon dried chamomile flowers
- 2 teaspoons of dried lemon balm leaves
- Boiling water
- Raw honey, preferably local (optional)
- Tea strainer
Begin by adding the dried lemon balm leaves and dried chamomile flowers to a tea strainer set in a mug. Pour a cup of boiling water over the lemon balm and chamomile. Let this fragrant concoction steep for about 10 minutes, allowing the herbs to release their soothing essences into the water.
Once the tea has steeped, remove the strainer and take a moment to inhale the delicate aroma. Stir in a bit of the local honey if desired. As you sip the warm liquid, feel the tension in your body melt away, replaced by a sense of calm and tranquility. The lemony freshness of the balm mingles with the floral sweetness of chamomile, creating a harmonious blend that caresses your taste buds and nurtures your soul.
This tummy calm tea is not only a remedy for digestive discomfort, but also an excellent choice for those seeking to calm their minds before bedtime. Its gentle sedative properties make it a perfect companion for a peaceful night’s sleep. As the day comes to a close, brew yourself a cup of this enchanting elixir and let its calming influence guide you into a restful slumber.
One of the beautiful aspects of this tea is its versatility. It is safe for children, providing a soothing remedy for their occasional tummy upsets or helping them wind down after an eventful day. As parents, we strive to provide our little ones with gentle and natural remedies, and this tea fits the bill perfectly.
As I sit here, savoring the last drops of my lemon balm and chamomile tummy calm tea, I am reminded once again of the incredible power of nature’s gifts. It is a reminder to slow down, to embrace the simplicity of life, and to find solace in the healing wonders that surround us. So, the next time life gets a little too overwhelming, remember the magic that lies in a cup of herbal tea and let the soothing embrace of lemon balm and chamomile restore your body, mind, and spirit.
Where to Buy High Quality Herbs
If you don’t have access to local or homegrown herbs, I highly recommend purchasing them from Mountain Rose Herbs. They are my favorite place to buy high-quality, organic dried herbs and herbal products. As a company they believe in people, plants, and planet over profit and only ever source their herbs ethically and sustainably. It is through this ethical, responsible sourcing, that they are able to offer one of the largest selections of certified organic herbs, spices, and botanicals in North America.
