Chamomile is one of the oldest, favorite herbs, dating back to ancient Egypt. A beautiful golden center surrounded by white ray-like petals is said to show the sun and its rays. The Egyptians called it 'the plant of the sun,' and dedicated it to Ra, their sun god. They believed it possessed healing powers like that of the sun, and valued it over all other herbs. Chamomile's name is from the Greek, chamos (ground) or kamai (on the ground) and melos (apple), in reference to its low growth and its apple blossom aroma.
Egyptian chamomile is the finest in the world, due to centuries of expertise in chamomile cultivation. Egyptian chamomile also produces larger, bright flowers that are the most fragrant. Climate there is ideal for chamomile where it thrives in the sunshine.
