Chamomile essential oil: a soothing plant that works on all body systems
Throughout history, Chamomile was touted for its positive effects on plants growing nearby and Ancient Romans used it for courage during war-times. This plant soothes all body systems, has calming effects and helps improve the immune system.
Different Chamomile types serve different purposes. Chamomile is a plant used all over the world for food and drink.
Improve softness and youthful looks on skin and hair
Chamomile can also be used on hair and skin to add shine and softness and improve youthful looks. It’s ideal for those who have noticed their hair is starting to thin. Its cooling properties also work soothing on your scalp and prevents hair loss caused by inflammation. Scalp inflammation can often cause cell damage. Chamomile treats inflammation and restores the scalp to a healthy state. On top of that, it has a beautiful sweet, herbaceous aroma.
If you are looking for natural ways to help lighten your hair with natural solutions, you can give Chamomile Oil a try. You can add a few drops to your Chamomile Hair rinse, or you can try the following mixture of Dr Axe, medical researcher and founder of www.draxe.com
“Combine five drops chamomile essential oil with a tablespoon of sea salt and one-third cup of baking soda. Use warm water to create a paste and apply the mixture to your hair. Massage it into your scalp and at the base of your hair, then allow it to sit for about half an hour before rinsing it out. If you want a bolder effect, keep the paste on as you sit in the sun.”
