The Healing Properties of Chamomile

Natural Remedies for Baby

Here at Punkin Butt, we understand the incredible, all-natural health benefits of organic herbs and essential oils. That’s why we’ve made our popular all-natural teething oils for babies with ingredients like chamomile, peppermint, and cloves! And we not only use homeopathic herbs in our formulas, we also use organic products as often as we can. By choosing organic, you reduce the amount of chemicals that are absorbed into your baby’s body, which is especially important when the product is used in the mouth, like most teething treatments. 

In today’s blog we’ll be looking more closely at the health benefits of chamomile, which are wide reaching and can help nearly every part of your body from your gums to your gut!

Reduces Inflammation

This healing property of chamomile is the primary reason we chose to include organic chamomile in our all-natural teething oil. When teething, babies’ gums become irritated and inflamed, which is why many mothers give their children cool or frozen teething rings.

By rubbing Punkin Butt Teething Oil directly on your baby’s gums, you’re able to get those anti-inflammation benefits right away. And because our teething treatment is 100% natural and 100% safe, you can apply it as often as you need — some parents use it as often as every 30 minutes because their little one’s gums are so inflamed!

Promotes Sleep 

As mothers, we all know how important sleep is for children, especially babies. It impacts mental and physical development. In fact, by their second birthday a well-rested child has been asleep more hours than they’ve been awake! 

Teething pain can make it difficult for infants to get the rest they need. And chamomile can help! It’s widely known that chamomile tea helps people relax and fall asleep. And our organic chamomile oil in our teething oil for babies does the same thing.

Boosts Your Immune System

One of the best benefits of chamomile is that it not only helps you overcome illness, but it also works as a preventive therapy by boosting your immune system. Chamomile fights the harmful bacteria in you and your child’s body, whether you’re experiencing symptoms of illness or not.

Who doesn’t want their child to have a strong immune system! A robust immune system helps prevent your child from getting sick when they come in contact with germs, bugs, and other people in their lives. Chamomile can help protect them, even in small doses like that included in our teething oil for babies.


Lowers Blood Sugar

Chamomile can help lower blood sugar, which is helpful for people with diabetes. Diabetes affects over 30 million people in the United States, so there’s bound to be someone in your life that you can share knowledge about the homeopathic properties of chamomile with. 

Most of us, even if we don’t have diabetes, can be helped by this healing property. Americans consume a lot of sugar, and incorporating chamomile into a healthy diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables — ideally organic — can help us all to live healthier lives! 

Promotes Digestive Health

Chamomile can help treat digestive issues such as IBS, diarrhea, and cholic. Drinking a cup of chamomile tea can also reduce heartburn and bloating. Here at Punkin Butt, we know how powerful herbs can be in the healing process, and it’s incredible how much good chamomile can do for your entire body! 

Remember, the digestive system is what fuels you and your child’s body. You’re careful about what foods you feed your child, and you should also consider the herbs you can incorporate to help promote digestion and gut health. Because teething oils for babies are rubbed directly onto your little one’s gums, the oil is inevitably going to end up in their tummies. That’s why our formula is 100% safe — even if your baby somehow manages to open the container and swallow the whole thing! The worst it will do is help our their digestive system run more smoothly.

Improves Skin 

Chamomile is hypoallergenic, which means that it can help reduce skin irritants. It also contains powerful antioxidants that can help reduce eczema and rosacea. This benefit is primarily for moms and dads, but chamomile essential oils can soothe skin anywhere on the body — including the sensitive lips of a teething baby. Our teething oil for babies should only be applied to the gums, but our soothing balms contain other organic essential oils that can keep your baby’s skin smooth and soft.

Reduces Menstrual Pain

Not only is chamomile great for babies, but it’s also an excellent remedy for period pain! A study from the Hamaden University of Medical Sciences found that women who drank two cups of chamomile tea a day the week prior to their period experienced less pain as well as less anxiety surrounding the onset of their period.

Essentially, chamomile is an effective — and natural — way to relieve menstrual pain! So if you’re looking for a way to help make that painful time of the month a little smoother, start brewing up some chamomile tea in the afternoon and before bed.
