History of Chamomile Blue
Though native to Europe, Chamomile Blue grows rather easily around the world. With bright yellow centers and white petal “rays,” their flowers somewhat resemble little suns. Perhaps this is why ancient Egyptians associated Chamomile with their sun god! Later on, Chamomile Blue was used as a secret ingredient in love potions because it helped soothe occasional nervous tension. Even today, this well-known herb is highly regarded as a shining star among the world’s greatest plant species.
