Anyone for Chamomile?

I love Chamomile tea, not only does it help relax me when I can’t sleep but it also works wonders for when I have a sore throat. I got thinking whether there was any beauty uses for Chamomile tea and discovered the following.
  • Suffering from Skin or Eye problems? Chamomile has also been found to be a great treatment to skin disorders, sunburns, and eye problems. It can relieve tired or puffy eyes, just soak a wash cloth or cotton wool in a cool cup of chamomile tea and place over your eyes a few times a day.
  • I sometimes use chamomile as a facial steamer. Simply boil water and add a chammile teabag. Once your water has boiled let it sit for a minute or two and grab a towel. Make sure your hair is out of the way and your eyes are closed. Keep an ideal distance between you and the pot and place the towel over your head. You want to stay under the towel enjoying the steam for about five minutes.
  • Want to bring out your natural highlights without uing a hair dye? Meet your new best beauty friend! Steep 2 chamomile tea bags in 2 cups of hot water for 5-10 minutes. Then add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to the mixture. Use this as a final rinse on your hair after your normal shampoo routine, but do not rinse it out. This will help to bring out the natural blond and red tones in your hair and help to slightly lighten your hair all over, without being drastic or looking fake.
