The more I learn about how easy some ailments can be helped with herbs, the more I fall in love with herbal remedies. After reading the benefits of chamomile for a teething baby, I knew this was an easy remedy that I could implement to help Wally with the teething process. I have started to notice some drool covered collars so wanted to make a few teething rings for Wally to assist with any pain that he may have. Chamomile calms the nervous system, helps with relaxation and has been used on teething babies for ages.
I made this teething ring using an old organic cotton tea towel that was a teeny bit stained and these wood rings. The process was simple.
- Add 1 tablespoon of chamomile flowers to 4 cups of filtered water in a large glass jar and set in the sun for about 4 hours
- Cut old towel into strips
- Strain the chamomile flowers from the tea
-Soak the strips in the tea, wring out the excess tea
- Tie knots at the bottom of the strip and add any more that you would like
- Put strips in the freezer for about 20 minutes to cool but not freeze
- Take tea soaked strips out and tie to the wood rings
*save extra tea to drink or repeat teething towel process
