about roman chamomile

Roman Chamomile is a small, contently aromatic creeping plant, with daisy-like flowers and grey-green leaf foliage that will grow across the ground. A fresh apple scent when crushed and commonly used to make calming tea.

in the records

The name Chamomile comes from the Greek word meaning "ground apple." Its history dates back at least to ancient Egypt, where Chamomile tea was prescribed as a cold remedy. The Romans enjoyed it as a beverage and as a calming incense.
