Native to Eurasia and first used by ancient Egyptians, Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) has daisy-like flowers and a long and storied history as a gentle, soothing herb. In traditional German herbalism, Chamomile was so popular it was called alles zutraut, meaning "capable of anything". With its pleasing sweet apple aroma, it has always been one of the world's favorite teas. In addition, its fragrance makes Chamomile a pleasant addition to potpourris and aromatic dried flower arrangements. Cosmetically, Chamomile makes a wonderfully soothing bath, a penetrating facial, and it can be used to bring golden highlights to brown hair.
