“Chamomile is a small plant, growing up annually, mainly in Europe, but it has naturalized to most continents. The flowers are edible and they can be eaten raw, or used when dried in tea or baths.
Because of the gentle effectiveness that chamomile provides, it is popular for homemade remedies. It can calm anxiety and stress and it’s also known for its the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action.
The word “chamomile” derives from Greek χαμαίμηλον, which means “earth apple” (khamai (χαμαί) – on the ground and melon (μήλον) – apple).
