Description:    There are several varieties and countries of origin of Chamomile – sometimes referred to as bachelor buttons because of the shape of the flower heads  – but the best quality comes from Egypt.

The sandy loam and nutrients from the Nile create perfect  growing conditions. Chamomile flowers have a yellow center and white petals – they almost look like a daisy. Essential oils in the flowers produce a soothing pleasant aroma and a fruity character. In some parts of Europe, particularly southern France, chamomile plants have been strewn on floors or pathways to give the area a good scent.

Chamomile can be made into a pleasant aromatic tea which is slightly bitter but with a fruity flavor. It is often sipped for relief of health problems ranging from toothache to nervousness. Camomile has also been noted as beneficial for soothing  headaches and is a natural relaxing herb known to assist the restless and those suffering from insomnia. In many circles Chamomile is called nighty night tea or sleepy tea on account of its natural properties, which promote restfulness and drowsiness. It is also known to assist digestive disorders by settling the stomach and calming the nerves.

The plant’s botanical name  Matricaria, is derived from the Latin term for womb because it was once used as an herb to treat female troubles.  Chamomile is derived from ancient Greek and translates as “Ground Apple” in reference to the fruity aroma.

Like many teas and herbs chamomile should be consumed without the addition of milk but this does not preclude additives such as honey, lime, lemon, cinnamon etc. One of the fun things to do with a widely used consumer herb like chamomile is to make your own  blend.
