You drink chamomile tea to calm your nerves and help you sleep, but did you know that this herbal tea can also get rid of those dark under eye circles? Placing chamomile tea bags on your closed eyes will reduce dark circles and puffiness because of chamomile’s anti-inflammatory properties. It is also very soothing for tired eyes, and can help an entire day’s worth of stress melt away in mere minutes.

So how do you use chamomile tea on your eye area?

Ingredients needed:
Chamomile tea (loose leaf or tea bags)
Boiling water

Tools needed:
A teapot or cup (or, in a pinch, any other heat proof container in which you can steep tea)
A tablespoon
A strainer (if using loose leaf tea)

Step 1: Drop a teabag or a tablespoon of loose chamomile flowers into a cup or teapot. Pour the boiling water over the chamomile, and let the tea steep for about 15 minutes.

Step 2: If you are using loose chamomile flowers, strain some of the tea into a bowl, and let it cool. Compost the flowers. If you are using teabags, simply remove the teabags, and let them cool. As a bonus, you get to drink some of the chamomile tea while you wait for your under eye treatment to cool!

Step 3: Using chamomile tea for banishing dark under eye circles couldn’t be easier. To use the teabags, simply lie back, and let the teabags rest on your closed eyes for 20-30 minutes. If you are using the tea, dip two small cotton pads, or two small cloths, into the chamomile tea. Squeeze out the excess liquid so that they are damp, not dripping wet. Lie back, place the cotton pads or cloths on your closed eyes, and relax for 20-30 minutes. Take care not to get any of the tea into your eyes, as it will sting a bit.

Now step in front of your mirror, and admire your perked up under eye skin!

This chamomile under eye treatment is not only effective at treating dark circles, but it is also soothing for tired, overused eyes. Hours of computer eye strain or stress will seem to vanish as you use this refreshing under eye treatment!
