Ampersand Essential Oils
Long ago, the Anglo Saxons believed in the healing properties of nine “sacred herbs.” Among them was German Chamomile. At one time, it was believed that illness was carried on the wind, and that the nine sacred herbs had the power to protect people against the “flying venom.” Today of course, we understand how diseases are actually spread. But the Anglo Saxons weren’t wrong about the medicinal value of Chamomile, even if they didn’t entirely know how it worked.
Today we know that Chamomile contains anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic compounds. It is a top natural healing choice for people dealing with stress-related digestive issues, respiratory inflammation, tension headaches, sleep disorders, PMS, inflamed skin conditions, and cuts.
