Spiritual, Religious and Ritual Items
In the world today, Chamomile is perhaps most famous as a component in tea that is not only smells lovely and is pleasantly flavorful, but is widely known for helping to soothe stomachs and ease indigestion as well as help you fall to sleep. It is also well known for being a soothing sedative that aids with pain and discomfort. This is a 1 oz bag of whole chamomile flowers.
Today, White Willow bark is primarily used in the treatment of pain. It actually contains salica, which was used in the 1800s to develop aspirin, and numerous other compounds believed to aid in treating similar issues as Aspirin, such as headaches, fever, and inflammation. While slower to act than taking an aspirin, its effects seem to last longer. Some herbalists also claim that White Willow bark can be used for its antiseptic qualities, and even immune boosting properties.

Modern herbalists still recommend Bee Pollen for the same purposes. It is generally prescribed to increase strength, staminia and memory. Some also explore the possibility that Bee Pollen granules may aid in treating respiratory infections and difficulties such as asthma or allergies such as Hay Fever. A lack of scientific study leaves this suggestion somewhat uncertain. Some also caution the use of Bee Pollen granules if you possess an allergy to bee stings.
