While walking into the garden you may find yourself admiring the various types of flowers, and soon you may come across one known as Chamomile (Matricaria Chamomilla). Chamomile is a daisy like plant found in the Asteracea family and holds many medicinal and culinary properties.

This herb can be used medicinally to help with conditions like hay fever, insomnia and ulcers. This can be used in a herbal infusion to help the symptoms of your issues lessen. A tea can be made for external issues as well, such as eczema and chickenpox. In skincare it is often used for its anti-inflammatory properties which can soothe the skin.

Most often you will see chamomile in your grocery store in tea bag or in boxes with this herb being advertised as soothing and calming. This isn’t wrong for chamomile contains no natural caffeine and has anti-anxiety properties.

Those ready to brew yourself a cup of chamomile should carry on with caution if you are pregnant or are also allergic to ragweed. For this herb may cause miscarriages and allergic reactions.
