What are Coffee Berries?

Coffee berries are also known as ‘Coffee cherries’. They are small round fruits, the size of a grape and they grow in clusters along the branches of the coffee plant. There are two main shrubs that produce coffee cherries around the world they are: coffea arabia and coffee robusta.

The fruit surrounding the coffee cherry is well known for its benefits, and has been consumed by many cultures for centuries. “Qishr” is a tea made from coffeeberries and is very popular in the Middle East. Some cultures even consume the fruit raw, or after boiling and drying. 

Coffee berry seasons

They have two seasons: spring and summer months.

The coffee bush is a shrub in the Rubiaceae family, it has long and dark green leaves with beautiful white flowers and a scent similar to jasmine. Coffee berries are the fruit of the coffee bush and consists to the fruit pulp and two coffee beans wrapped in a silvery film and a husk. The skin of the fruit is smooth and shiny with a bitter flavor, while the flesh is sweet, tender and juicy. In the center of the fruit are two blue-green seeds, which are fresh form of coffee berries. Sometimes from a natural mutation the coffee berries will have only one bean inside, which is called a ‘Peaberry’ and is said to produce a sweeter and more flavorful coffee.

Chamomile

What is Chamomile?

Chamomile has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to calm anxiety and settle stomachs. It is best known as an ingredient in herbal tea. The name, chamomile, is derived from the Greek, khamai, meaning “on the ground,” and melon, meaning “apple.”There are two types of chamomile, Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) and German chamomile (Matricaria recutita). The Roman variety is the true chamomile but German chamomile is used herbally for almost the same things. The steps for growing Roman chamomile and growing German chamomile are also nearly identical.

How does Chamomile look?

Roman chamomile is also known as Russian chamomile, English chamomile or Chamaemelum nobile is a member of the Asteraceae, or daisy family and has small daisy like flowers with yellow solid centers and white petals, that bloom May to September. The leaves are feathery, light green, are everlasting and somewhat shiny. Because of the creeping roots and compact, mat-like growth of this species it is sometimes called lawn chamomile. It releases a pleasant, apple scent when walked upon, this fragrant evergreen is a garden favorite, it is also called the physician herb because of its beneficial effect on other herbs as a companion in the garden. Blossoms grow singly on long stalks attached to the erect, branching, hairy stems.

German chamomile is a sprawling member of the Asteraceae family, as it closely resembles the Roman chamomile. German Chamomile also known as Matricaria recutita, or Chamomilla recutita is a hardy, self-seeding annual herb. It has been cultivated in Germany to maximize its medicinal properties. The hollow, bright gold cone of the blossom is ringed with numerous white petals. The herb has also been called scented mayweed, and Balder’s eyelashes, after Balder, the Norse God of Light. German chamomile looks similar to Roman chamomile with the differences being that German chamomile grows upright to the height of about 1 to 2 feet (30 to 61 cm.) and reseeds annual.

History of Chamomile

Chamomile was revered as one of nine sacred herbs by the ancient Saxons. Saxons are members of the Germanic people that inhabited parts of central and northern Germany from Roman times. The Egyptians valued the herb as a cure for malaria and dedicated chamomile to their sun god, Ra. Two species of this sweet-scented plant, Roman chamomile and German chamomile, have been called the true chamomile because of their similar appearance and medicinal uses. Roman Chamomile was used as a strewing herb during the middle ages to scent the floors and passageways in the home and to deter insects. The Spanish call the herb manzanilla, or “little apple.”

Chamomile Tea

Why do people take chamomile?

Chamomile is considered a safe plant and has been used in many cultures for stomach ailments and as a mild sedative. The aromatic flower heads and leaves of both Roman and German chamomile are used medicinally. The herb acts medicinally as a tonic, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-allergenic, and sedative. Traditionally, a mild remedy of the herb has been safely used to calm restless children, and to ease colic and teething pain in babies. It is also effective in relieving acid indigestion and abdominal pain, carminative properties relieve intestinal gas, and helps in cases of diarrhea and constipation . The herbal tea can ease symptoms of colds and flu by relieving headache and reducing fever. The herb can soothe burns and scalds, skin rashes , and sores. Chamomile can be used as a gargle for mouth ulcers, as a soothing eye wash for conjunctivitis (pink eye), and as a hair rinse to brighten the hair. The blossoms may also be used as a herbal aromatic treatment, providing a tonic lift with its appealing scent. These uses of chamomile is especially popular among Hispanics living in the southwestern United States, who use the herb at significantly higher levels than the rest of the population.

Benefits of Chamomile on skin

The natural plant polyphenols, chemical compounds, contain antioxidants. Antioxidants are agents which fight free radicals. Free radicals are produced in the natural cell aging and death, which occurs in everyday life. Free radicals are responsible for a number of health conditions. By attacking them, antioxidants in polyphenols can speed up the healing process in scars. They can protect against the damage that causes wrinkles and skin breakouts. This means that chamomile is useful for helping skin irritations, also the cosmetic benefits in balancing natural oils, tightening pores and hydrating.

Lemon (Citrus Limon)

Lemon plant

Lemons and lemon essential oils have been used in ayurvedic medicine to treat a wide spectrum of health conditions for at least 1,000 years. It is a flowering plant that belongs to the Rutaceae family. The oil is extracted from the peel of fresh lemons using a “cold pressing” process that pricks and rotates the peel as oil is released. Always use a carrier oil when using this essential oil, oils like: almond oil, coconut oil or jojoba oil.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Lemon essential oil can make your skin sensitive to sunlight. When you use the oil on your skin try to stay out of sunlight for at least 8 hours and wear sunscreen when going outside. Always use glass bottles or containers with citrus oils because the oil breaks down plastic bottles.

Lemon essential oil has many benefits such as:

  1. May calm nerves – There are promising indicators that diffusing lemon essential oil has an effect on decreasing stressful feelings. Inhaling this aromatic oil has been shown to stimulate serotonin and dopamine production, which contributes to decreasing worry levels. Lemon oil is also known as a stress reliever and fight feelings of sadness.
  2. Can ease morning sickness symptoms- Nausea and vomiting are two of the most common symptoms experienced in early pregnancy. There may be reason to believe that lemon essential oil can relieve (or at least decrease) the severity of these symptoms.
  3. Can act as a discomfort reliever- Lemon essential oil is used in aromatherapy as a natural discomfort reliever. The anti-stress and antidepressant effects of the oil may have to do with how it helps our bodies handle our without panicking.
  4. May help you breathe easier and soothe a sore throat- If you have a cold or a sore throat, the oil is a good home remedy to try. You can try using a diffuser with lemon oil to release its sweet, tangy scent in your room while you try to rest. The calming properties of lemon oil can help relax both your mind and the muscles in your throat.
  5. Help purify the body- Lemon oil has a purifying and cleansing effect on the body. It helps to defend the body against harmful pathogens and promotes detoxification through the blood and liver.
