chamomile & lavender tea for some winter weekend relax

In addition to their soothing and relaxing effects, Chamomile can help alleviate fever and allergies and boost digestion, whereas Lavender stimulates circulation, acts as a tonic for the nervous system and has antibacterial and antiseptic qualities.
