Egyptian Camomile

Egypt grows the finest camomile flowers with perfectly formed florets with a rich deep flavor. Camomile has often been served as a calmative for many years.

There are several varieties and countries of origin of Chamomila - sometimes referred to as bachelor buttons because of the shape of the flower heads - but the best quality comes from Egypt. The sandy loam and nutrients from the Nile create perfect growing conditions. Camomile flowers have a yellow center and white petals - they almost look like a daisy. Essential oils in the plant parts produce a soothing pleasant aroma and a fruity character. In some parts of Europe, particularly southern France, camomile plants have been strewn on floors or pathways to give the area a good scent.

Camomile can be made into a pleasant aromatic tea with a slightly bitter but fruity flavor, which is sipped for relief of health problems ranging from toothache to nervousness. Camomile has been noted as beneficial for soothing headaches and is a natural relaxing herb known to assist the restless and those suffering from insomnia. In many circles Camomile is called nighty night tea and sleepy tea on account of its natural properties which promote restfulness and drowsiness. It is also known to assist digestive disorders by settling the stomach and calming the nerves. The plant s botanical name, Matricaria, is derived from the Latin term for womb because it was once used as an herb to treat female troubles. Camomile is derived from ancient Greek and translates as Ground Apple in reference to the fruity aroma.
