The flowers of Chamomile are an anti-inflammatory of ancient fame.
Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) is a multi-talented plant for your garden.
Archaeological evidence indicates that the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used dried flowers to prepare a soothing infusion.
It is said to relax and help digestion.
Chamomile is also an effective anti-inflammatory and its essential oil is a renowned skin tonic, especially for burns.
It can be considered as the western version of ginseng.
This very robust, small and bushy plant tends to make beds that can be pulled and planted elsewhere or repotted, to offer a living gift to a loved one.
As a companion plant, chamomile increases the turgidity of nearby plants while repelling mosquitoes and flies.
The carpet of small bright flowers will always be buzzing with bees and bombyles regaled. It may seem delicate, but chamomile is very robust. It will recover even more strongly when it is crushed and treated without care. Plant it along the way in your garden, or in a place where you have to walk to maintain your plants. Don’t be afraid, chamomile can handle it.
