Chamomile flowers have been drunk in the UK since the Middle Ages and are renowned for their soothing properties and delicate floral flavour when drunk as a herbal infusion.
The word Chamomile derives originally from a Greek word that means Earth Apple. It is a daisy-like plant from the family Asteraceae and ours is made from the sub-species Matricaria Chamomilla. Chamomile has been widely used in children and adults for thousands of years for a variety of health conditions. Today, chamomile is used as a folk or traditional remedy for sleeplessness, anxiety, and gastrointestinal conditions such as upset stomach, gas, and diarrhoea. It is also used topically for skin conditions and for mouth ulcers resulting from cancer treatment.
These Egyptian Nile Delta chamomile flowers produce a delightfully soothing and refreshing drink with a bright yellow liquor that will help you relax. Well known for its healing properties, infusions of chamomile have been drunk in England since medieval times. As well as being an all-round-good-for-you drink, these Chamomile flowers taste delicious and have a delightful, sweet, apple-like flavour that is very enjoyable.
