Camomile has long been used, as a traditional folk remedy, for a wide range of health issues. The name originates from Greek words ‘chamos’ (which means ground) and ‘milos’ (meaning apple). The Egyptians would dedicate camomile plants to the sun and worshiped it above all other herbs for its incredible healing properties. Considered to be a symbol of relaxation and rest today, in floral magic, the dainty white flowers were used in spells for purification, protection, peace, and new beginnings.
One of the most ancient medicinal herbs known to mankind, Camomile is rich in calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, copper, potassium, and manganese and boasts anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties which help detoxify the body and support the immune system. Preparations featuring this health powerhouse are commonly used for many human ailments such as hay fever, inflammation, even muscle spasms. If that’s not enough, Camomile is widely thought to have properties that help people relax and fall asleep and even improve sleep quality. It’s a botanical all-rounder
