Chamomile

Chamomile
(Matricaria recutita)
Soothes the tummy—and the soul
A mild, relaxing tea with a delicate flavor, it contains oils that relax the smooth muscles in the stomach. Three cups daily will ease indigestion, irritable bowel problems, and colitis. Choose 100% pure chamomile flowers with a strong, fresh apple aroma. Use 1 tablespoon of flowers per cup of boiling water. Take for 2 months or more for chronic problems.
