Chamomile as drinking tea as well as just washing your face with (a la vinegar style)...?

Chamomile is known to be a good ingredient in some lotions to help sooth skin flare-ups, allergies, and minor cuts and scrapes.

As a tea: chamomile is known to relax smooth muscle tissue. In this way, it is useful in such things as calming a nervous stomach and relieving menstrual cramps. The tea is often used to promote relaxation and alleviate stress.

Externally: chamomile includes reducing inflammation of the skin, soothing hemorrhoids, and relieving toothache. The herb is also added to shampoos to brighten blond hair.

Personally, I don't like the taste.
