There are several varieties and countries of origin of chamomile -
sometimes referred to as "bachelor buttons" because of the shape of the
flower heads - but the best quality comes from the Nile River delta in Egypt. The sandy loam and
nutrients from the Nile create perfect growing conditions. Chamomile
flowers have a yellow center and white petals - they almost look like a daisy.
The essential oils in the flowers produce a pleasant soothing aroma and a
fruity character. The word "chamomile" derives from ancient Greek and translates
as "ground apple" in reference to the fruity aroma.
Use a heaping teaspoon per cup and steep in freshly boiled water for 5-10 minutes.
