Chamomile was used in ancient Egypt to embalm the dead, but the dried flowers contain many terpenoids and flavonoids, which contribute to its medicinal properties. It was used to support the digestive system and healthy sleep, and to treat muscle spasms, women’s health issues, and inflammation. Chamomile was also used extensively in cosmetics, aromatherapy, and to make tea.
Chamomile is an excellent source of antioxidants, beneficial for general health and immunity support. It's also commonly used to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system and is often taken to soothe the gastrointestinal tract. Chamomile is often used in aromatherapy and is most popular in the form of medicinal herbal tea.
The name chamomile means "ground apple" in Greek because of the sweet apple aroma the plant emanates when it's blooming.
