Sleep Soundly This Summer
There is nothing worse than the feeling of waking up hot and sweaty in the summer or having to spend a small fortune on the air conditioner! That's exactly where Chamomile tea can be your favourite summer tea!
Chamomile tea has long been cited as the ideal herbal remedy to help you enjoy a peaceful night's sleep, so what better tea to reach for? Drinking a cup of Chamomile tea just before bedtime has been shown to improve your night's sleep due to the plant's incredible sedative effects!
Start a Hydration Station
When it gets hot outside, it can be difficult to keep yourself properly hydrated. That's where a hydration station can be absolutely fantastic! Choose a high-traffic area in your home, for example, a kitchen or living area, and start your station!
Add a large pitcher of Chamomile tea, some cute tumblers and even straws to a bar cart or small table for the perfect hot-weather pick-me-up! This herbal tea is an excellent pick for a hydration station due to its use as a digestion aid.
Chilly Chamomile Ice Pops
If you've got little ones running about your house or you just fancy a little treat on a sunny afternoon, Chamomile tea-infused ice pops are the way forward!
- 2 chamomile tea bags or loose leaf tea
- 2 cups boiling water
- 1/4 cup honey (adjust to taste)
- 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
- Lemon zest for extra flavour (optional)
- Ice pop moulds and sticks
- Place the chamomile tea bags in a heatproof bowl or large measuring cup.
- Pour 2 cups of boiling water over the tea bags.
- Let it steep for 5-7 minutes to ensure a strong chamomile flavour.
- Remove the tea bags or strain the loose leaf tea and allow the tea to cool to room temperature.
- While the tea is still warm, stir in the honey until it completely dissolves.
- Taste the mixture and adjust the sweetness by adding more honey if desired.
- For an extra burst of flavour, add some lemon zest to the tea and let it infuse for a few minutes.
- Squeeze fresh lemon juice and add it to the chamomile tea mixture. Stir well to combine. The lemon juice adds a refreshing zing to the popsicles.
- Carefully pour the chamomile tea and honey mixture into the ice pop moulds, leaving a little space at the top for the popsicles to expand as they freeze.
- Insert the ice pop sticks into the moulds.
- Place the moulds in the freezer and let them freeze for at least 4-6 hours or until the popsicles are completely frozen.
- Once the chamomile tea and honey ice pops are fully frozen, remove them from the moulds by running the bottom of the moulds under warm water for a few seconds.
- Enjoy these refreshing and soothing ice pops on a hot summer day!
Feel free to get creative and experiment with other citrus fruits or herbs to customize the recipe to your taste preferences.
Of course, you can also make Chamomile tea-infused ice cups to stop your iced tea from getting watered down or spice up your regular water!
