Chamomile is one of the best herbs that can be used to heal and moisturize dry skin.
The oils in a chamomile flower can be drank as a tisane, or tea, which moisturize and nourish the skin from inside. Used as a wash it soothes irritation and cleanses and disinfects minor wounds and scratches. Chamomile acts as an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic so protects against infections.
Used as a facial sauna chamomile is good for facial skin that has been out in the cold, dry winter air.
Anyone allergic to feverfew, daisies, sunflowers, asters, ragweed or chrysanthemums should use chamomile with caution or not at all.
