Chamomile

Chamomile

Chamomile is the common name for several daisy-like flowering herbs best known for their apple-like taste and their ability to be made into a soothing, relaxing tea.

Chamomile: Latin name: (Genus) Matricaria; (Species) M. recutita

It takes its name from the Greek ‘kamai’, or ‘ground apple’.

The national flower of Russia, Chamomile contains the flavonoid chrysin, which is thought to be the agent responsible for reducing stress, calming nerves and aiding restful sleep.

Traditionally Chamomile has been used to aid digestion, and particularly to help calm the nerves and aid sleep.

It is also said to be a wonderful soothing aid for morning sickness and for babies with colic.

Directions for use: Add a cup of almost boiling water to a heaped teaspoon of Earthfare Organic Chamomile, allow to brew and enjoy!

For further information on the properties and use of Chamomile we suggest you consult a qualified herbal or medical practitioner.
