- Eye mask:
You can simply use two tea bags. Prepare some warm water, dip the tea bags in the water, make sure they are not too hot, and place them under your closed eyes. Rest your eyes for 20 minutes with the bags or until they cool down. You can also make a mix. If you want to make the mixture, empty the content of two tea bags into a cup, add warm water, honey, and oatmeal until you have a homogeneous paste. Apply around the eye area in a gentle way so as not to damage your delicate skin. Let it sit for 20 minutes and rinse with cold water. Apply your favorite serums and eye creams. Now is a good time to apply a drop or two of Manzanilla Sophia to each eye to further relax and cleanse.
There is nothing better than a cup of tea after a long day. Turn on your kettle and sit down to rest. You can make normal tea with chamomile flowers and honey or agave, or you can make it even more delicious. If you want to make a Chamomile Latte drink, simply brew the tea, add honey or your favorite sweetener, heat some vanilla milk, froth it by hand or with your blender, and then pour it over the chamomile tea. Enjoy your latte alone or with a dessert, you deserve it.
This is a very fun way to use the Chamomile flower. You can use this project to spend time with your children. Simply purchase the paraben-free soap base, chamomile extract, and some organic chamomile flower. Melt the soap in the microwave or on the stove, add the chamomile extract and the flowers, and use a mold to give it the desired shape. You can also follow this recipe on our Pinterest. You can add color and fragrance, but you don’t have to, and it’s even better without those ingredients.
- For the skin:
You can make your own chamomile lotion or oil. This is a very easy and fun project, but it does take more time. Simply add chamomile flowers to a glass jar and fill it with oil. You can use vitamin E oil, almond oil, or jojoba oil. Make sure you put the jar in a space where it can get direct light for 6 to 8 hours a day, turn or shake the jar once a day and in a month you will have an amazing chamomile oil. You can use it like this, or you can pass it through cheesecloth to strain it, and you will have oil without flowers. Be sure to use a new, clean, and sterilized jar. Now you have chamomile oil to nurture your skin with.
