About the ingredient
German camomile (Matricaria Chamomilla) derives its name from the Greek word “ground apple” and is one of the oldest, most widely used and well-documented medicinal plants in the world. The seeds are sown in the spring or autumn, and the flower heads picked when in full bloom during the summer.
History dates back to Egypt where camomile was prescribed as a cold remedy and was worshipped above all other herbs for its healing properties. Camomile is one of the nine sacred herbs of the Lacnunga, an ancient Anglo-Saxon manuscript.
Today, camomile tea is most commonly used to aid sleep and reduce anxiety.
