Chamomile is used as aromatherapy and known for its health benefits such as soothing various stomach problems, reduce muscle spasms, and treat several skin conditions. It includes treating stress, anxiety, insomnia, indigestion, nervousness, depression, and headaches.
The ancient Egyptians offer it to their sun god, embalm the dead, and cure the sick. It was documented in Ebers Papyrus (1550 BC).
The Greeks named Chamomiles “kamai melon” (ground apple) and the Spanish called it Manzanilla (little apple).
It’s in the English children’s story “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” by Beatrix Potter, Peter’s mother gives chamomile tea.
“….. Peter was not very well during the evening. His mother put him to bed, and made some chamomile tea and she gave a dose of it to Peter.”
