True or False Chamomile?

Most of us met Chamomile since childhood. And often is Chamomile associated with children and prescribed for them. Why? Chamomile essential energy is gentle and soothing. It is a kind nanny telling us bedtime stories. It is always listening, never in a hurry. It takes us into the realm of dreams and fantasy. Chamomile rhythm is slow and full of patience. Adults call it sedative effects.

And so it can be used, inside or outside, wherever we need to calm what is irritated: stomach, intestine, eyes or skin. Chamomile loves to cooperate with water, for internal use like tea and infusion or bath for external application.

Books teach us how to distinguish the true from the false chamomile. Is it necessary? False Chamomile – it sounds like a dirty trick from the Creator. Never mind if it’s one or the other. Both have healing effects and both are the nannies for our children. Well, one has more power and experience than the other. But do we always need the most powerful sedative? Does it mean that our children are useless if they are not the strongest?

I would appreciate your true or false chamomile comments.


Is Lavender friendly?

Unlike many people I am not a big fan of lavender. Anyway I still work with it due to wide range of benefits. Lavender is easily available and strong in healing effects, especially in disinfection. Some call it “European Tea tree”.

First communication with lavender surprised me a lot. I’ve got message that lavender is ready to destroy eyes of its enemies, wants to blind them and intimidate them by odor. It was a very strict notice that sounded like a desire to eradicate evil around the world.

Then I realized that all the mentioned enemies might be viruses and bacteria, so I calmed down and continued in listening. I felt great penetration of all aspects. Lavender can be effective even far from the epicenter. It can be used on one end and effective on the other one. Usually it is not us who decides against what lavender fights. We can only hope in matching of our interests.

I tried to find the motivation of lavender and go a little bit deeper under surface. Then I found a small herb full of self-doubt and full of decision not to allow anybody to recognize it. That is why lavender is so offensive or aggressive. And maybe this is the right reason why lavender loves to grow in large clusters.

Do you wonder why is lavender used also for relax and against headache? It makes sense if you have the same group of enemies as lavender at the time of healing. You have to try because lavender does not allow reading its secrets.

I would appreciate your lavender comments.

Why to write or read this blog?

We live in the age of information. You can find millions articles about herbs, herbalism and healing. So why to give additional drop into existing ocean?

Honestly, I don’t have a serious reason. I only have a tension to share my experience and feelings. We will see in future how it works. At this time I have a concept to share my communication with herbs. To many people it may sound crazy, but I believe that at least for a few individuals it will be interesting and even useful. Ivana
