Brief History: The ancient Egyptians prized the herb as a sacred gift from Ra, the sun god, and revered it above all other herbs. Throughtout the ages gardeners have referred to chamomile as the "plant doctor" or the "plant's physician" because not only is it a very good companion plant chemicals that it produces from its roots help to keep plants in its surrounding area healthy and disease free.
SUGGESTED USERoman chamomile is nicer taken as a tea than its German cousin because it is less bitter than german chamomile. It is used to flavour liqueurs such as Benedictine. It can be added to sleep pillows, relaxing bath blends and pot pourri. Acts as a general tonic to all garden plants.
