Anyone who’s enjoyed the calming effects of a cup of chamomile tea will know how effective it is in the pursuit of relaxation – something that is in short supply with new parents. With that in mind, I quickly despatched a bottle of Weleda’s Chamomilla Granules to my friend, Felicity, whose new arrival Eric is in the throes of cultivating his first teeth. Normally a sweet, happy child, Eric is finding this new experience a bit uncomfortable. To the rescue with these vegan, sucrose-based granules – which are also gluten-free! Felicity just popped a tiny spoonful (which accompanies the granules) into Eric’s mouth every 15 minutes until his condition improved and she said that they worked their magic. He’s sleeping more blissfully and those teeth are poking through with relative ease, which is an invaluable result.
