Is chamomile with anise tea good for face?

Is chamomile with anise tea good for face?

Chamomile: Some have used topical chamomile for eczema, but formal studies of this are lacking. This is not the same as drinking the tea -- for which i've found no references for skin conditions. Anise is a spice, used for flavoring and to promote digestion. I could find nothing about drinking anise tea for skin concerns. ...Read more

Can i drink yogi honey lavender stress relief tea that contains chamomile,lemon balm ,and lavender with 1mg of ativan tonight?

Can i drink yogi honey lavender stress relief tea that contains chamomile,lemon balm ,and lavender with 1mg of ativan tonight?

Yes: That tea will have benefits in terms of helping you to relax, and, of course, the Ativan will also help you to relax. Both the tea and Ativan may make you sleepy so you'll be more sleepy and relaxed if you take the tea and Ativan together than Ativan alone, but it is safe to take both. But maybe if you take the tea you could get by with 0.5 mg of Ativan. The tea is healthier for you than Ativan. ...Read more

See a neurologist: You can try the tea, but track whether it worsens or improves your headache by keeping a daily headache log (timing, severity, duration, frequency, characteristics). Take the log to a neurologist. There are both over the counter and prescription remedies that might be suggested to you by a neurologist. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/migraine.html ...Read more

Does chamomile tea induce labor?

Does chamomile tea induce labor?

Doubtful, BUT: Consuming large quantities of chamomile alcohol extract might induce labor, so it's not recommended in pregnancy. Chamomile tea is much, much weaker and is not likely to induce labor. However, some have connected premature closure of the fetal ductus arteriosus with maternal chamomile tea drinking: http://tinyurl.Com/lde4mfr safer teas include lemon balm, peppermint, raspberry leaf, etc. ...Read more

What's the goodness of herbal tea ( mint, anis seeds, or vervain for example) sugar-free?

What's the goodness of herbal tea ( mint, anis seeds, or vervain for example) sugar-free?

For enjoyment: Regular teas and typical herbal teas, made from usual tea leaves, are for people to enjoy. The caffeine level is usually low, so teas are not too stimulating. A tea-drinker can try different teas and decide for herself what she likes most. Flavoring additives like mint or anise are in the teas in small amounts, so should not have a noticeable medicinal effect. Avoid adding too much sugar to tea. ...Read more

Will a sleep aid with melatonin, valerian extract, hops - humulus lupulus, passionflower, chamomile have any affect on the birth control pill?

Will a sleep aid with melatonin, valerian extract,  hops - humulus lupulus, passionflower, chamomile have any affect on the birth control pill?

Unknown: That's one of the problems with botanicals, there aren't any controlled studies with which to reference when it comes to drug interactions. I recommend you start with the birth-control and look for drug interactions on the package insert. Even with proper use of oral birth control pills there still is about 1% failure rate. ...Read more

Can I drink chamomile tea with Zoloft (sertraline)? Is there an interaction? I know St. John's Wort is off limits :) Is chamomile safe?

Yes it is: The St. John's is more of a theoretical. Although it (but not chamomile) lowers liver metabolism of drug, it is not a strong blocker of liver metabolism, and the safety margin of Zoloft (sertraline) is quite high (double the amount is still safe in most). ...Read more

Is it safe to drink chamomile tea with honey for anxiety tow times per day any side effects of honey ?

Is it safe to drink chamomile tea with honey for anxiety tow times per day any side effects of honey ?

Great idea!: Yes, it should be totally safe - with the only possible problem being an unusual allergy to the pollen in the honey if it is made from that pollen (rare - don't worry!) Chamomile is known to be relaxing, calming and great for complexions. It sounds delightful and I hope it works well for you. Experiment with other herbal teas too and try the addition of a bit of milk or a squeeze of fresh lemon. ...Read more
