Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) is a small daisy-like plant, with bright white flowers. It may be one of the very oldest herbs ever to be used by humanity.
The first references to the herb begins in ancient Egypt, where it was used to treat fever and a vital ingredient in Egyptian makeup and skincare. Later it is documented being used as far and wide as ancient Germania and the territories of the Roman Republic.
Chamomile preparations were widely used to improve general well-being and to ease anxiety, as well as stomach ailments, heartburn, nausea and sometimes even colic in babies.
