The Benefits of Drinking Chamomile Tea at Night

The Benefits of Drinking Chamomile Tea at Night


It’s easy to feel overwhelmed these days. While life is less difficult than it was for previous generations in so many ways, it can often seem nonstop. Never have we been so dialed in to everything happening in the world - the good, the bad, and the ugly - than we are in the age of the internet, social media, and lightning-speed communication. 


Regardless of your appetite for keeping up with social media or world news, we can all use a break sometimes, and it’s important to look for ways to decompress and relax from the hustle and bustle of daily life. 


A great way to unwind at the end of the day is to curl up with a steaming mug of chamomile tea. Aside from the restorative health benefits of chamomile, which we’ll explore in a bit, the act of enjoying a warm beverage at night is a ritual of sorts, a practice which has its own benefits. 


Tea ceremonies are an important part of many cultures, but the ritual of enjoying a daily cup of tea is something that can be enjoyed by anyone. All it takes is a bit of mindfulness and planning. This article from balancecharleston.com explores “How to Turn Your Teatime into a Soothing Daily Ritual” and sums the benefits up perfectly:


Having a tea ritual at home is a wonderful way to take a pause, be present, reduce stress, and enjoy all the health benefits of drinking tea.


Chamomile tea in particular is a wonderful tea to incorporate into your nighttime ritual, and has many relaxation and health benefits. Here are just a few of the benefits of drinking chamomile tea at night:


  1. Lowers inflammation: Inflammation is sort of like your body’s defense mechanism. It’s the natural reaction of the body to protect itself against harm, and it can manifest as acute inflammation (such as when you injure yourself or are fighting off a bacterial or viral infection) or chronic inflammation (as a result of unwanted substances in the body, such as toxins). No matter what type of inflammation you’re struggling with, it’s unpleasant. The anti-inflammatory compounds in chamomile tea are one way to help reduce inflammation (and its related discomfort) in the body.

  1. May help treat cold symptoms: While this benefit hasn’t been proven, evidence suggests that the steam from chamomile tea may help to relieve some cold symptoms. Chamomile tea has long been an important herbal remedy for various ailments, so this benefit is not surprising to those that have experience in herbal medicine.

  1. Helps with relaxation and sleep: This benefit may be the most important one when it comes to a nighttime chamomile tea ritual. Studies have shown that chamomile can reduce anxiety and aid in sleep, and anecdotal evidence certainly supports this purported benefit. Not only does chamomile act medicinally to promote relaxation and sleep, but the mindful ritual of drinking chamomile tea at night can help you unwind and get into the right mindset for a deep and relaxing sleep. Unlike many sleep aids, chamomile won’t leave you feeling drowsy or sedated, but merely relaxed and able to naturally fall into a healthy sleep. Even the aroma of chamomile itself can help promote restful sleep.

  1. Promotes healthy digestion: Much like chamomile relaxes the body and mind, it can also act as a relaxant to the digestive system, helping to calm nervous stomach and triggering the pancreas to produce enzymes that aid in the digestive process. Stress and digestive issues often go hand in hand, so chamomile tea can pack a double whammy in this regard.

How to Incorporate a Chamomile Tea Ritual Into Your Evening


Enjoying the ritual of a nightly cup of chamomile tea can be as simple or as complicated as you want. Some people like to incorporate a special teapot, and turn the process of waiting for the water to boil into a meditation of sorts. Maybe you have a meaningful or special teacup or mug that makes you feel cozy and relaxed. 


We recommend unplugging before enjoying your tea ritual. Put away your phone, turn off your tv, and just take some time to be still. If you want to enjoy some relaxing music while sipping your tea, we’re all for that, but try to steer clear of staring at a screen. Just turn the music on in the background, cozy up with your favorite blanket or jammies (or both!) and enjoy the serenity of decompressing from your day with a warm cup of chamomile tea.


If you like to journal or set intentions, this is a perfect time to do so. Journaling is another daily ritual that can help reduce stress and calm anxiety, and it pairs perfectly with sitting quietly over a cup of tea. You can set your intentions for the following day, or just take time to reflect on the day that has just passed, while letting go of anything that may have caused you stress or discomfort. 


We recommend finding a quiet spot to enjoy your tea. This is easier for some than others, and can be a bit challenging if you live with family, roommates, or have young children demanding your attention. But in those situations, it is arguably even more important to find a quiet space to take a few minutes for yourself and be present for your ritual of tea and relaxation.


If being still and quiet just won’t work for you for whatever reason, no worries. You can still enjoy the health and relaxation benefits of chamomile tea even if your lifestyle may not work to incorporate it into a larger self care ritual. No matter how you enjoy your chamomile tea, taking time to drink chamomile tea at night will undoubtedly lead to relaxation and better sleep, as well as the other health benefits we focused on above. We would point out though that even if you can only spare 5 minutes to drink your tea, it is still possible to make those 5 minutes a ritual of self care that you allow yourself every day. You deserve it.
