Powerful Healing: Ancient Flower Wisdom Revealed!

Powerful Healing: Ancient Flower Wisdom Revealed!

What is the first herb you ever learned was actually medicine?

It’s easy to get caught up in all the articles and new studies on promising natural remedies, but what about that first piece of herbal knowledge you came across? Maybe in your grandma’s kitchen… or in a novel you read as a teenager?

For me, it was chamomile. When I was little, this bittersweet herb was given to me as a bedtime tea when I was exhausted or had a stomach ache. I didn’t think about it much as a kid. I just trusted the magic in the cup and accepted its healing with that child-like faith.

But as I began to study this common flower, I learned just how powerful chamomile is.

The first use of chamomile goes all the way back to ancient Egypt. And they used it in the same ways we do today: teas, oils, and baths… Chamomile’s relaxation benefits were also recognized by the wanderers of modern-day Germany and all throughout the markets of ancient Rome. And guess what— they used chamomile in the exact same ways.

So how could they all know that chamomile was a calming remedy? Their cultural lifestyles, spiritual practices, culinary processes and languages were all so different—yet this healing plant spoke to them in the same way—crazy right?

Well, the answer seems simple enough to me… if these very different ancient groups came to the same conclusions about this little white flower, it has to be what we call “evidence-based” medicine.

Thousands of years of practice and experience with chamomile back up these ancient claims, but modern science has taken it one step further. Researchers and healers have been studying chamomile and it’s no surprise that this ancient wisdom is being proven out in modern laboratories. Turns out, our ancestors knew a thing or two…

So what have scientists discovered about chamomile so far? 

Powerful Healing: Ancient Flower Wisdom Revealed!

Chamomile is a potent medicine.

When you break chamomile down into its chemical constituents, the two most notable attributes are the volatile oils and flavonoids. The volatile oils are responsible for chamomile’s sleep-time reputation— they relax muscles and calm the mind, while the flavonoids (specifically apigenin) have been proven time and time again to bring down anxious and depressive tendencies.

In addition to that, studies have shown that chamomile is one heck of a pain killer. Not only does it work topically to relieve aches and pains, bring down inflammation, stop muscle spasms and heal wounds— you can take it internally as a tea, tincture or syrup and get the same results. 

And here’s the real kicker— chamomile is incredibly safe. (So safe in fact that it is traditionally used for teething or fussy children.)

It’s no wonder this herb is a total ‘go-to’ remedy for people across the world, young and old alike. 

Most people can take chamomile every day for the rest of their life with no side effects — and many of my friends do! You’d just get the added bonus of deeper sleep, a strengthened immune system, and a balanced stress response.

Please note – it is quite rare, but some folks who have an allergy to ragweed, daisies, marigolds, or chrysanthemums might also experience an allergy to chamomile.

A tasty tip: my favorite way to drink chamomile in the summer time is to make a big jar of tea using heated spring water and a big handful of the dried flowers. Once it steeps, I then put it in the fridge overnight to cool off. Chamomile Iced Tea with a little bit of honey is a heavenly beverage on a hot day!

If you haven’t already added this special plant to your herbal repertoire, make sure to give it a try. After thousands of years, this flower continues to be a household name and science can now back it’s safety.

Medicine In Bloom

If you’re here, you’re probably well versed in the benefits of herbs, supplements, and medicinal mushrooms. But have you experienced the potency of a medicinal bloom?

Flowers have so much more to offer us than a sensory experience. In fact, they can be used medicinally to help with a host of emotional ailments, including depression, anxiety, insomnia, brain fog, overwhelm, nervous system dysregulation, stress, and more! They’re even being studied for their anti-cancer properties.

If you’re new to the world of flower essences, there’s no better place to start than my good friend and flower alchemist, Katie Hess’s labor of love, LOTUSWEI. You can read all about her miraculous flower essences, elixirs, mists and anointing oils using the link below.

Katie practiced flower essence therapy in one-on-one client sessions for 10 years before formulating her first products for sale. She saw the incredible change and healing that they brought to all of the lives they touched and she knew that their medicine had to be shared with the world.

She puts so much heart and wisdom into her work…
