Something you may like to try this Sunday is this easy breaky-bake! I love doing this when we have a few people over as it’s quick, delicious, nutritious and everyone can take what they feel like. You may like to make some toast on the side with some avocado and grab some fresh OJ for the table.

The chamomile we used.

The chamomile we used.

The chamomile flower has been used for centuries for a variety of reasons. I always knew it to be the tea of choice after a busy day to aid in a good night’s sleep, but there is a long list of other beautiful benefits. Violet started to develop a blotchy rash on her back so Misha’s mum suggested we bath her in chamomile flowers. After just 2 baths the rash went away completely and has not made its return. 

Throughout the Middle Ages it was recorded that people used chamomile flowers as a remedy for problems like fevers, asthma, nausea, inflammation, skin diseases and even cancer. Their calming and anti-inflammatory properties make them a mothers must have. The daisy-like flowers contain natural healing oils and flavonoids that reduce stress internally and externally. I think it’s important to trial remedies that are 100 percent natural before turning to other medications. You can buy chamomile as dried flower heads (what we used in Violet’s bath), infusion (tea) or as a liquid extract. If you’re look for something to relieve eczema chamomile may certainly help.
