Why our Kelp Powder is best

Our Kelp Powder is harvested from the clear, cold waters off the Canadian coast. That is why ours has some of the highest iodine and trace mineral content of any on the market. Fine ground and easy to use, Bulk Herb Store is the best resource on the web for wholesome, healthful Kelp.

Why Kelp Powder

Your body, as amazing as it is, produces no iodine, and cannot store large quantities of iodine. It must be introduced through the foods we eat. Our bodies require it for several reasons. Some of the hormones our thyroid glands produce are around 60% iodine and a lack of it can lead to goiter, hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. It can also increase the chance of mental retardation, and even stunted infant brain development. Iodine is a water-soluble trace element that’s rare in the earth’s crust, but fairly prevalent in its seas. Unfortunately, due to over planting and chemical fertilizers, the soil in most of US has virtually no iodine content. We have to do one of two things, in order to compensate for this.

The first thing you can do is add iodine to the soil by mixing sea greens like kelp or seaweed with your natural fertilizer for your vegetable garden. This will put iodine back in the soil, and therefore in your vegetables.

The next, and certainly easer option, is to add iodine to your diet. That is why, in 1924, iodine was added to salt, bread, and milk. Today iodine is no longer added to bread or to milk, and the amount of iodine added to salt has steadily declined over the years. Furthermore, the highly-processed table salt has a myriad of other health problems to answer for and is not a good alternative.
What is a good alternative? Kelp Powder! Kelp is a tall, leafy plant that grows in cool water, floating vertically over the rocky ocean floor. Although tethered there by a root like stem called a hold fast, it does not draw nutrients from the ground but rather from the water around it. This ensures that every leaf is packed with an ocean of goodness.

Iodine Dosage

Individual iodine dosage is not something we can call. After all Paracelsus’s (the father of toxicology) said, "All substances are poisons; there is none which is not a poison. The right dose differentiates a poison and a remedy." While the recommended daily allowance by the FDA of 150 micrograms is sufficient to prevent goiters; it probably isn’t optimal, and humans can definitely handle more. We have personally had success taking 1 capsule a day in increments of 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off. However, thyroid issues are incredibly complex, and too much iodine can actually exacerbate existing thyroid disorders just as too little can create them, so talk to your doctor or endocrinologist if you have thyroid problems before supplementing.

Excerpts from Nutritional Herbology

Kelp is employed by herbalists as a mineral supplement. It is especially prized for its iodine content.

Kelp is most famous for its use in foods. In the Orient, it is used to flavor soups and sushi.

The medicinal virtues of kelp are primarily related to its content of viscous fiber called algin. Algin absorbs most nutrients as well as toxins from the digestive tract in much the same way that a water softener removes the "hardness" from tap water. This results in less toxins entering the circulatory system.

Kelp Powder contains mucilaginous compounds that enhance the detoxifying and eliminative functions of the digestive system. These compounds absorb toxins from the bowel and provide bulk to the stool. Kelp is an excellent herbal source of calcium, magnesium, sodium and iodine. Iodine is essential to normal thyroid function. It is used to increase the metabolic rate and strengthen connective tissues including the hair, skin and nails.

Excerpts from The How to Herb Book

Kelp has a salty taste and is used by many people in place of salt. It has a high content of natural plant iodine, which is absorbed much more slowly and therefore more safely, than chemical iodine. Iodine is necessary for proper function of the thyroid, which is essential for proper growth, energy, and metabolism.

  • Abounds in calcium, chlorine, potassium, magnesium, and other mineral including trace minerals.
  • Good for nails and hair loss.
  • Regulates the thyroid and pituitary glands (activates all glands of body).
  • Aids function of digestive and endocrine systems.
  • Acts as an antibiotic; assists the thyroid in releasing iodine into the blood stream when infection is present. Iodine fights infection.

From Our Reading and/or Experience...

  • We use it often in capsules and tincture combinations. Of course, it can be used in many other types of remedies. Except as a tea, as powders are not normally used in teas.
  • Kelp is a food, so keep it in the kitchen as all other food ingredients. We add it to dishes (soups, etc.) in small amounts so as to add nutritional value to the dish.
  • Some use it as salt or with salt, as it has a salty flavor.
  • Kelp has a distinct odor and flavor. Some folks love it. Others don't, but simply use it because of how effective it is for a number of conditions, such as: thyroid disorders, obesity, tumors, atherosclerosis, and rheumatism.
  • It can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), children and animals.
  • It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
  • As is the case with most powders, Kelp should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place. Refrigeration or freezing is great, but certainly not necessary. Following these suggestions will delay the loss of its highly valued nutritional and medicinal properties.

expiration & iodine amount
by Anonymous on Jan 27, 2014

Hi i was wondering what the expiration date is on the kelp powder and also how much pure iodine is in each dose of 150 micrograms.

    Re: expiration & iodine amount
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 31, 2014

    Hello,
    Our herbs last 2-3 years at optimal freshness. And the iodine content varies with each batch. Thanks!

How Strong is it?
by Pat on Jan 26, 2014

I couldn't find anything about how much iodine there is in your 1/2 lb. of powder...

I read at livestrong.com that a typical 1/4 cup of dried seaweed is contains about 4.5 mg...

So two questions for you:
1) Typically how much iodine is in your 1/2 lb. of powdered kelp?

2) And since it's powder, does that mean it's like a colloidal substance that can be immediately absorbed into your blood-stream through saliva?

    Re: How Strong is it?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 31, 2014

    Hello, unfortunately the Iodine content varies from each batch and therefore we can't state how much iodine is in a batch. Also we can not give dosage amounts as we are not licensed practitioners. I am not exactly sure if it can be absorbed through the saliva. I would recommend researching it yourself. Thanks!

Expiration date
by Stephen on Jan 25, 2014

Hi I was wondering how long the kelp powder lasts before it's no good.

    Re: Expiration date
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 31, 2014

    Hello,
    Our herbs, if kept out of direct sunlight, will last at optimal freshness for up to 2-3 years. Thanks!

where is your kelp page?
by Teri on Jan 23, 2014

several times you mention to see your "kelp page" to get the iodine info for your product yet I can't seem to find the page.

Thank you for your wonderful information!!

    Re: where is your kelp page?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 31, 2014

    Hello,
    That reference is in regards to this page just the paragraph that is labeled 'Iodine Dosage' right above the video. Thanks!

Tincture?
by Victoria on Nov 20, 2013

Can you use Kelp Powder in a tincture? If so, How much would you use? Thanks!

    Re: Tincture?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Nov 20, 2013

    Powders are usually not a good idea for tinctures because they glob up. The best way to take kelp is by making capsules or putting into smoothies or tomato juice.

kelp recipe
by Nikki Wood on Nov 14, 2013

A great way to take kelp is to combine with brewers yeast or savoury yeast and mix inot a paste with olive oil ( or flax seed oil) and cider vinegar. It is quite tasty when you get used to it and can be eaten with a salad or on crackers

kelp vs irradiation - and organic certification?
by Letizia on Oct 25, 2013

hello !
I'd like to ask you, since the title presents the product as organic, if you have a certification for it. So far I had thought that seaweeds can't get organic certification...
Last question : can Kelp really help in case of nuclear disaster, just as it does when people use iodine drops in the countries at risk?
Then there's a question of ratio I guess...
Thank you !

From Canada
by Anonymous on Sep 13, 2013

Hi there,
I was wondering if you knew where this was harvested from - West Canada or East? I was hoping it was from the Atlantic and not the Pacific due to the exposure from Fukushima. How are your herbs tested to find out the purity of them?
Thanks!

    Re: From Canada
    by Bulk Herb Store on Sep 18, 2013

    Hello
    Our Kelp is harvested from the Atlantic side. Near Nova Scotia Canada.The purity of the Kelp is tested by HPTLC,
    High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography, the essential analytical tool to efficiently and accurately determine Botanical Identity and authenticate other raw materials.

Is Kelp powder good for someone with cancer?
by Lacy on Aug 19, 2013

I have a friend with cancer and wanted to know if the capsules would be good for him?

    Re: I'd Kelp powder good for someone with cancer?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Aug 20, 2013

    I would recommend reading the book, "Cancer, Step Outside The Box". It has a wealth of information concerning cancer. Thank you!

Kelp while nursing?
by Rebecca on Aug 18, 2013

I was wondering if kelp is safe to take while nursing? Will it actually increase milk supply? I haven't been able to find much info online about it! Thanks!

    Re: Kelp while nursing?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Aug 20, 2013

    Hello,
    You would have to check with your Doctor or Midwife. Kelp contain a certain amount of iodine and you want to make sure your body needs the extra iodine while your nursing.

About how much iodine is in your powder?
by Terry on Jun 15, 2013

I'm looking into making my banana/blueberry/coconut milk smoothies and adding in your kelp powder, along with saw palmetto, nettle, pygeum bark, pumpkin seed, maca, bladderwrack and ashwagandha root. I'm a male with lower testosterone and an underactive thyroid. How does the kelp taste, and do you think the smoothie would cover up the taste, along with all the other supplements I plan to add in? Would it be necessary to take an additional iodine supplement, or does your kelp have a substantial amount, already?

    Re: About how much iodine is in your powder?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jun 17, 2013

    It has a salty and fishy taste so it is hard to mask the flavor altogether but I'm sure it would help with all the other supplements you are adding. You could also put it in capsules and take it that way. Our kelp has a substantial amount of Iodine in it and you shouldn't need to take an additional supplement.

Add to smoothies?
by Elise on Jun 11, 2013

Could I add a bit to my smoothies? I usually add +/- one teaspoon. Is taking the Kelp Powder in this manner still effective? It seems like it would be...
It really seems to have helped with my psoriasis. I'm thankful for Kelp Powder!

    Re: Add to smoothies?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jun 13, 2013

    Yes you can add some to your smoothies, and it is affective!

Kelp to fight Psoriasis
by Susan Lawing on Jun 7, 2013

I read a lot of the comments on kelp trying to get info about how well it work to get rid of Psoriasis and how it was to be taken for that purpose. Is there any info available? Thanks for the suggestions such as capsules and sprinkling it onto food. I'm going to order the Celtic Sea Salt, so maybe that will have adequate iodine?

    Re: Kelp to fight Psoriasis
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jun 12, 2013

    Dosage needs vary between individuals so we can't call dosage amounts for an individual. Natural crystal unrefined sea salt like our Celtic Sea Salt®
    does not contain measurable amounts of iodine.

Cooking/Contamination
by Paul Whitcomb on May 12, 2013

Hi, I have two questions: 1.) Will the heat of cooking affect Kelp Powder's medicinal/nutritional qualities?
2.) If your Kelp Powder is harvested from the west coast of Canada, have you checked it for any radiation contamination from Fukishima disaster?
Thank you for all the good information.

    Re: Cooking/Contamination
    by Bulk Herb Store on May 14, 2013

    It is very possible the heat of cooking will affect the qualities of Kelp. If I was to use it in cooking I would just add it to the food after it has been cooked. Our Kelp is harvested from the East Coast of Canada.

Hypothyroid
by Pritivpatel on May 8, 2013

Hi I m taking 125mcg Levothyroxin from last 3years it's generic. My thyroid level up& down so can u suggest me how much kelp power I have to take per day please & I m tring to get pregnant so can I take that kelp powder answer me soon please thank u

    Re: Hypothyroid
    by Bulk Herb Store on May 10, 2013

    Individual dosages is not something we can call, especially when it comes to thyroid issues as it can vary so much between each individual. All the info. we are able to give you can find on our Kelp page "Iodine dosage". Other than that, I would recommend asking a natural medicine practitioner or Dr. It is safe to use during pregnancy.

2 Week Regimen
by Bridget on May 1, 2013

I just received my Kelp powder & looking forward to trying it! I have 1/2 thyroid & the 1/2 left really isn't doing its job. I have been prescribed Synthroid and Armour Thyroid but really do not want to take prescription pills so fingers crossed this works!
What is the purpose of the 2 weeks on 2 weeks off?
And how many teaspoons a day do you recommend?

    Re: 2 Week Regimen
    by Bulk Herb Store on May 1, 2013

    Dosage needs can vary between individuals, and is not something we can call. Read Iodine Dosages on our Kelp page for FDA recommended dosages etc. and or talk to your Dr. before supplementing. The reason we suggest not taking it all the time is because you don't want to get too much Iodine.

counter indicates for Kelp use

Golden Earth Herbs
I would like to know if anyone has found kelp to be harmful in blood clotting issues with humans or animals?
I have been recommending kelp powder to clients for over 20 years with no adverse feed back and was presented with the above question by a recent client.
Thank you for your feed back!


    Re: counter indicates for Kelp use
    by Bulk Herb Store on May 1, 2013

    I hadn't heard of any such reports before. I did read in an article that Kelp can hinder your body's ability to form blood clots.

kelp
by paula on Apr 22, 2013

I noticed in the comments that you said you take kelp on for 2 wks. then off for 2 wks. ... is that just for capsules or using the powdered as a 'salt shaker' or sprinkled on foods?

    Re: kelp
    by Bulk Herb Store on May 1, 2013

    Basically, you just don't want to get too much Iodine or it can cause problems too, which is why we don't recommend taking it all the time, and it probably depends on how much you use each day in your food whether or not you can use it every day. Read Iodine Dosages on our Kelp page for an idea on how much you can take.

Kelp
by Gina on Feb 18, 2013

Can you tell me where your Kelp is grown/sourced from?

    Re: Kelp

    The origin of our current batch is from Canada.

hyperthyroidism
by Darcy on Feb 4, 2013

I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism months ago. I have been avoiding getting the radioactive scan done (to determine the cause of it) as I am nursing and don't want to put the radioactive material in my body. The ultrasound showed that there may be some inflammation of the thyroid but that's all they know for now. Is it possible that Kelp could help the hyperthyroidism? If so, how much would you recommend per day? I have recently started taking a probiotic and am seeing a chiropractor for a pinched C7 nerve. (the nerve which is linked to the thyroid gland)

    Re: hyperthyroidism
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 15, 2013

    No, you do not want to take kelp with hyperthyroidism as your thyroid would already be overactive and the kelp would be for under-active or hypothyroidism. Google "herbs for hyperthyroidism" for herbs that might be helpful!

Filling capsule shells with kelp powder
by Alla on Jan 26, 2013

Hello,

It was mentioned in one of the comments that 1 to 6 capsules of kelp powder is a recommended daily dose. What size of capsules does it refer to? I have capsule shells, size "00". How many of these do I need to take?

    Re: Filling capsule shells with kelp powder
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 2, 2013

    In the comment mentioned before I'm assuming they had the size "00" as they had the "large" cap. machine. I would start in with a small dose like 1/2 tsp. a day and add more if I needed to, you don't want to overdose on it. We also recommend doing 2wks. on-2wks. off as you may get too much Iodine if taken all the time, or seek medical advise before taking it.

kelp
by jennifer on Dec 14, 2012

well I just started taking kelp about a week ago, and I can already feel the difference an I THINK I'M SOLD IT WORKS! Thank GOD for google search!

Kelp
by Elizabeth on Dec 10, 2012

Would you happen to know whether kelp interferes with iron absorption and whether it should be discontinued periodically, i.e., 2 wks on-2 wks off? The reason I ask is that I've been taking bladderwrack thinking this would be similar to kelp. I went to donate blood recently and found that I wasn't able to because of my low iron levels which had been quite high previously.

    Re: Kelp
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 29, 2013

    Hi! I do not know whether kelp interferes with iron absorption or not, I was not able to find any suggestions to that affect. Yes, it should be discontinued periodically, i.e. 2 wks. on-2 wks. off.

organic kelp
by gale on Dec 4, 2012

please help,if you have been on kelp for a while do you need to come off ?
How often can I take it ?

    Re: organic kelp
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 28, 2013

    Yes, we usually take it for two weeks, then take a two week break and then on again for two weeks, then off for two weeks and so on.

Kelp
by VictoriaBC on Jul 24, 2012

I would like to see the label for the nutrition content. Just how much iodine is in each serving? The powder I use is 400 MCG per serving.

    Re: Kelp
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 23, 2013

    Hello! There isn't a label for the nutrition content available since the amount of iodine per batch or per serving will not be the same each time. It also depends on the conditions it was grown in whether or not it has more or less iodine. Thank you for your question!

kelp in a mineral tincture?
by Jenny on Jul 4, 2012

I'd like to make a mineral tincture and wondering if kelp could be used in it. I think I remember reading somewhere that mucilaginous herbs don't do well in alcohol tinctures as it destroys some of those properties. Would a glycerine tincture be better? The other herbs are Red Raspberry, Oatstraw, Alfalfa, Nettle and Horsetail. (If there is any rule of thumb for which herbs are best in glycerine and which in are best in alcohol, that would be very helpful.)

    Re: kelp in a mineral tincture?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 23, 2013

    I would not suggest doing kelp in a tincture because I do not think it would mix well being its a powder and you could not strain it out.

Affordable and it works!
by Anita M Bowman on Jun 20, 2012

I LOVE the kelp powder!!! I have been taking a thyroid tissue recommended by my local healthfood store, and have had good results. The cost has been a bit of an issue ($100 per month approx), which is very hard for a stay-home mama, but ESSENTIAL to Staying home!! LOL. I could absolutely NOT miss one of my doses,(6 tablets a day) or I would notice right away. I read online about Kelp being great for thyroid and decided to try it. I read a review that raved about how Fast it worked, and was a little pessimistic at first, I must admit. But I also noticed results I was hoping for, VERY quickly! :) I was so impressed that I 'weaned' myself off of my "Healthfood Store bought" thyroid medicine, and didn't even notice. And the best part: the cost is much more affordable for my one-income family. I love it so much that I've started cooking with it. Thank you, thank you!

safe?
by Betty on Jun 12, 2012

is this safe to take at any stage of life? including pregnancy, nursing and is it safe for young kids as well?
also wondering the same thing about the liver cleanse tincture you have available. can you take that while pregnant and/or nursing? thanks!!

    Re: safe?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Nov 21, 2012

    Kelp can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), children and animals. The liver cleanse tincture should not be used by pregnant/nursing women because when you detox all the toxins are released and it could cause harm to the baby if they were to drink milk full of toxins or if they were being passed to the baby in the womb. It is best to wait to detox after pregnancy/nursing is over. Thanks for the great questions!

Kelp capsules
by Kathy on May 15, 2012

I bought kelp powder but the taste is just too strong for me - undaunted, I purchased a capsule maker (large). What is the recommended dose? All in the morning or spread throughout the day?

    Re: Kelp capsules
    by Bulk Herb Store on Nov 21, 2012

    Hello! One to Six capsules a day is best. If you have thyroid trouble you may need six if not you may need less. Find out about your thyroid and see what is best for you. I would recommend taking half in the morning and half at noon or if its a small amount all in the morning is fine!

Life is good!
by Maggie G. on May 5, 2011

I am just about to order your kelp powder and I can testify to the effectiveness of kelp in the diet. I am 60+ and have suffered from chronic bronchiectasis since childhood. I have had over 50% of each lung removed. MDs have no cure for this disease, only repeated prescriptions for antibiotics and inhalers - all harmful. Several years ago during a bad bout of pneumonia I suddenly become severely allergic to antibiotics - it was then I began my "research" project and discovered iodine. I eat several types of seaweed daily and use it for cooking. The results have been nothing short of a miracle. I have not seen a doctor for over three years, have had no illnesses at all, not even a sneeze, I have more energy than I had in my twenties, I sleep well and weigh 112lbs! Life is good! I now have my children and grandchildren hooked on kelp.

Big Help for Hypothyroidism
by Allison on Sep 23, 2009

Wow! I'm a new woman! A blood test showed my thyroid was a little underactive, so my doctor prescribed Synthroid. After 3 months, it came back OVER-active! I immediately stopped taking the medication.

Over the previous year, I was feeling fatigued, not looking forward to each day, brain fog, and unable to complete workouts that before I had mastered. I take my exercise very seriously, and I was gradually feeling worse. I decided to research hypothyroidism a little more. I found out iodine was very important to thyroid function. I realized that I had been eating sea salt (not iodized) for awhile.

I trusted your website to give me accurate herbal information. Kelp powder was listed to help with hypothyroidism, specifically as a great source of iodine. I ordered it, received it, and in desperation to get some in my system, I mixed about a teaspoon with a bottle of water. You don't recommend mixing it in drinks, but I just went for it! Well, it was completely disgusting, of course - I held my nose while I drank it (a trick I learned as a young girl to eat my green beans). I wasn't expecting anything immediate, just trying to get it in my system.

Well! In about half an hour I felt INCREDIBLE! Better than I had felt in months! The down side to this was that it was a couple of hours before bed, and I had a hard time going to sleep! I felt like I could clean the whole house. Since then I have sprinkled about 1/2 a teaspoon on my breakfast (eggs), in my Fiberwise drink, or smoothie. I continue to feel like my old, healthy, energetic self!

I'm so happy! Thank you so much for providing great products and great information. I'm telling everyone about Bulk Herb Store.

Kelp
by Kamilla on Aug 6, 2008

Great on fish, steaks, chicken and as you already mentioned soups! We keep the kelp powder in a glass shaker and keep it in with the spices. I shake it on just before serving.
Thanks for all of the info you provide on this site and through the ”Making Herbs Simple” video. Slowly but surely our family is transitioning from modern methods of medicine to a more natural holistic approach.

Kelp for Milk Production
by Lynda on Nov 20, 2007

I'm a nursing mother and had been taking red rasberry, fennel, and alfalfa, but I felt like my milk production was running low, so one evening I was checking to see what herbs I had left out...I ended up taking some kelp and fennel together. Wow! Was I suprised at the results. My milk production increased by leaps and bounds.

How to use kelp powder
by Susan on Oct 5, 2006

hello, I have just ordered and recieved the kelp powder wanting to use it for myself and family for the health benefits it can provide. I thought I could perhaps just stir a little in water or sprinkle it over food but this is just not working. Should I order the supplies to make capsules or can you suggest a different idea for incorporating the kelp in our diet. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Re: How to use kelp powder
    by Bulk Herb Store on Oct 5, 2006

    Please see "From our Reading and/or Experience" for ideas on how we use it.

kelp
by Kathleen Albin on Aug 23, 2006

I am interested in Kelp for my daughter who has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. How does she ingest the product? Also, would the whole family benefit from this product in place of multivitamin supplements? Our ages range from 2 years old to 47 years old. Would this information be in The How To Herb Book? Thank you for your time.

    Re: kelp
    by Bulk Herb Store on Aug 23, 2006

    Kelp can be taken any way you choose: in capsules, stirred into a drink, in/on food (don't cook it), etc. Yes, the entire family can benefit from it. We don't use multivitamins. The herbs supply more than enough organic nutrition, and compliment our "Nourishing Traditions" way of eating quite well. We have already included above what The How to Herb Book has to say on Kelp.

      Re: kelp
      by Amy Whitlock on Sep 22, 2006

      Where would I find the kelp in pill form?
      Would this be good enouph for hypothyroidism, or should I take it along with something else. I've been on Synthroid for 5 1/2 yrs. now. I haven't taken anything for about 2 months and am feeling the effects of a low thyroid. I do want something natural. Any suggestions?

        Re: kelp
        by Bulk Herb Store on Sep 22, 2006

        We do not offer Kelp already in capsules (only the Kelp and empty capsules for you to fill yourself). From our reading and experience, we have found hypothyroidism (and other thyroid disorders) to be the direct result of your chosen lifestyle (diet, stress levels, etc.). Kelp has helped many in such areas. It's one of the first things I'd try to stimulate the thyroid to proper function (which is the goal). However, I'd consider reading Nourishing Traditions. It address thyroid trouble, and makes very good suggestions in how to address them naturally.

Please, take a moment and comment on this product.

From our Mailbox

I live on a Greek island and there is such an abundance of herbs growing wild! However,I don't really know what they all do and how to best use them. Thanks for this fantastic site which I discovered through NGJ! I would like to give all mamas a healthy alternative to baby lotion.

Heat 2 cups of good quality olive oil with a handful of chamomile flowers (dried) and pour in a jar and allow to cool. Store in glass for future use. I use it on the children after their bath by massaging and they warm up in seconds! It also seems to help in healing cuts and abrasions.

Did you know that chamomile actually means apple of the ground in Greek (because of its apple-like smell)?

Thanks once again! ~Arlene
