Plant Description: The common Chamomile or true Chamomile is a low-growing plant that rarely grows to more than one foot in height. A jointed and fibrous root provides a foundation for its hairy stem and threadlike leaves. The flower, a long solitary drooping bud, isn’t seen until late July and August. Its yellow center and white petals make the Chamomile bear a strong resemblance to the daisy. Chamomile can be found throughout Europe, North Africa and the temperate areas of Asia.
Use: Make a tea by pouring approximately 2 cups of boiling water over 2 heaped tsp of herb. Let steep for 3-5 minutes. In general, sip a cup before breakfast, and another 2 hours after dinner.
Cautions & Interactions: Chamomile should not be taken while pregnant or nursing. If taken in conjunction with phenobarbitol, the effect of one or the other or both may be reduced. Keep out of reach of children. If you don't already know the benefits of Chamomile Flower, we suggest that you go to Google or your favorite search engine and search "Chamomile Flower".
