Chamomile is an edible flower that looks similar to a daisy though it is much smaller in nature and it has very different petals. There are two main types of chamomile most commonly in use; German and Roman. Though there is also a Spanish variety.
Chamomile is most well known for that little cuppa yellow relaxing tea. This little flower holds a lot more power.
Well known for its calming effect it can be very soothing to the nervous system and any other ailments coming from the nervous system such as anxiety, headaches, depression, or other nerve pain.
Chamomile also assists the digestive system and so it is helpful for upset stomach, gas, and nausea as well. My favorite thing to use chamomile for is teething toddlers and fevers. It calms both right down and it's good for the nervous mother who is helping the teething toddler as well!
