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
