Chamomile Flowers are gentle floral herbs known for use in teas for calming purposes. They are also great for soothing the skin so can be used in lotions and balms.
Chamomile flowers have been around for centuries, dating all the way back to ancient Egypt, where Chamomile was given as an offering to the gods. Chamomile has been utilized extensively in Europe as somewhat of a panacea which supported digestive health. Common preparations were teas, baths and compresses. Germans refer to this herb as alles zutraut meaning ‘capable of anything.’
Chamomile has a light pleasant fragrance so can be used in sachets to put around the house it desired. They can also be used as decoration or confetti in natural themed parties or weddings and in other such craft projects.
