It's so tiny and yet so powerful. It's delicate and has a gentle fragrance like earth and sweet honey. It's German Chamomile and I love it.
I think most people are familiar with German Chamomile as a "calming" tea, and yet it has the same wonderful benefit and more when used on the skin. It soothes, calms and has anti-inflammatory properties good for troubled skin. Here is a wonderful resource that lists 15 Benefits & Uses for German Chamomile.
Five weeks ago, my daughter and I joined together to start TSF Botanicals, a 100 % natural, non-toxic skin care company. It is the beauty at our farm in Scottsdale that is the inspiration for the products we formulating. Everything is done right here at the farm - from creating the product, to making it, bottling, labeling and packaging it - and then shipping it to you.
This new product I am excited about is our German Chamomile Hydrosol. A hydrosol is an aqueous product of steam/hydro distillation of fresh leaves, fruits, flowers and the stem. In this case - it's the whole, beautiful little German Chamomile that goes through a distillation process and what remains is the hydrosol.
These little bottles are 1 ounce and available online here. They are perfect for travel, great as a little gift and of course good to carry in your handbag.
Just a note on orders of caramels from our farm - our last day for shipping is 12/15. Order real soon. Our last shipping day for our skin care collection is 12/20.
