Hey everybody! How many of you love to experiment with herbs or just different products in general? We sure do! Are you in need of some relaxation? Have you ever tried chamomile? Well for all the newbies out there, chamomile is a flower that is used for many different industries. It is known mainly for helping with insomnia problems, but it has many other uses as well! Chamomile can be for medicinal purposes, skin care, even cosmetic products and hair care! This flower is something you definitely to try if you aren’t hooked already!

Chamomile, or in the British spelling, camomile, is the common name for a daisy-like flower. This flower is a part of the Asteraceae family. It is native to many western and southern European countries. It is derived from the Greek χαμαίμηλον (khamaimēlon), meaning “earth apple.” Did you know that in the story of Peter Rabbit, his mother gives him chamomile tea when he is feeling sick? There are many different species of chamomile, however the two main ones are called the Roman chamomile and the German chamomile. German can grow up to about 3 feet high, while Roman grows only about a foot high, staying closer to the ground. Ancient Egyptians believed in its healing powers and actually dedicated the flower to their gods!

Do you have a bad burn? Or maybe your baby is having a lot of problems while they’re teething? Chamomile can help with both of those problems! This great flower can be used for many industries! Other medicinal ailments it helps are rashes, skin ulcers, sunburns, mouth disease and gum sores. Gum disease and mouth sores can be treated with a mouthwash made with chamomile. It even has been said to be helpful with treating cancer! If used in shampoos and conditioners, chamomile helps hair manageability and makes it shinier. It also can used to enhance blonde hair.

This flower can also be used for many bath and body products as well! For soaping and candle making, it is used as a natural decoration. When used in massage oils, it is great for muscle inflammation and stiffness. In cosmetics, chamomile serves as an emollient and has anti-inflammatory effects. For skin care, it brings relaxation, helps to soften and heal skin, can reduce stretch marks and wrinkles, and even gives the skin a good healthy glow.
