I'm sure we would all agree that the best thing about Spring is the return of sunshine! Those gorgeous warm rays increasing our serotonin levels, relieving stress and inducing a pleasant feeling of summer haze and sleepiness. But what if we wanted to experience the beautiful effects of the sun at night, during winter or on cloudy days?
Easy! Just drink some liquid sunshine – aka Chamomile tea.
Chamomile is infamous for its calming, sedative effects without causing drowsiness and has the remarkable ability to soothe tired aching bodies by relieving stored up tension and allowing muscles to relax all while simultaneously calming the nervous system. Bliss!
So the next time you find yourself feeling a little anxious before a hot date, restless before bedtime or unable to unwind after a long stressful day of being awesome, remember to drink some liquid sunshine and feel the effects of chamomile soothing your entire body inside and out enabling inner quiet, peace and blissful serenity.
