This minimal blend of three herbs is a great afternoon blend to unwind after a long day.
Lavender is one of the world's oldest and most commonly used herbs. The organic lavender that we put in our blend is a fresh smelling variety that comes from France -- no chemicals or pesticides are used in its cultivation.
Spearmint is highly appreciated for its digestive properties and its ability to relieve nausea, especially due to motion sickness. Quite often it is also used to find relief from headaches and tension.
Chamomile has been prepared for thousands of years and is still honored for its great curative properties. It was first used in Europe about 1600 to help with insomnia, back pain, rheumatism, neuralgia and nervousness.
Health Notes: Chamomile should not be used during pregnancy. Chamomile is a member of the daisy family of plants which includes ragweed. Those with allergies to ragweed should avoid drinking chamomile tea.
