Chamomile has been used in Chinese, Thai and Ayurvedic traditional healing for concerns related to the nervous and digestive systems, including indigestion, ulcers and abdominal pain. Ancient Egyptians and Romans utilised the dry flowers freely in tea and salves, particular for anxiety and insomnia. Today, Chamomile teas are commonly consumed to help with relaxation and sleep. A low-growing herb with dense clusters of flowers, the plant prefers cooler climates, blooming almost the entire year.
