Yarrow, Garden Angelica and Cardamom - Herbal  remedy for Colic: Yarrow, garden angelica and cardamom can be taken in tea form by the mother if she is breastfeeding.  Colic is excessive, unexplained crying in an otherwise healthy baby aged 3 weeks to 3 months of age. Colic is a common problem in infants. The “excessive “crying  lasts for more than 3 hours a day, at least three days a week, for at least three weeks. The crying is often more intense than expected for a child that age and occurs for no apparent reason. The infant may experience abdominal cramps and excessive gas during the crying episodes. The crying usually occurs at the same time every day, typically between 6 o’clock and 10 o’clock in the evening. Colic usually peaks at 6-8 weeks.
Colic can be relieved by boiling one teaspoon of yarrow, one teaspoon of garden angelica with half a teaspoon of crushed cardamom seeds in one glass of water. Mother can have half a glass of this mixture twice a day.
