A chamomile face mask or scrub improves the complexion, brightens and evens out skin tone, reduces redness, spots, blotchiness and small lines, helps break down old scar tissue and prevent premature aging.

There are individual flowers in the 16oz bag of chamomile that this product comes in. So far I'm pleased with the product but it lacks the distinctive sweet smell of high quality chamomile. When I steeped this tea, it quickly goes bitter if I go beyond a minute steep time. This is true of most chamomiles certainly, but rather than the characteristic sweetness of chamomile, it overwhelmingly showcases the negative features of chamomile. And don't ever try to resteep a forgotten pot of once brewed chamomile. It will taste like socks. I've tried Chamomile from Adagio Teas that I liked a lot better, but my favorite has been pricier chamomiles from French import tea companies like Brise. There's a lovely sweetness that emanates from the flowers even before steeping and that's what chamomile tea ought to be like.
