Ah, chamomile. Used for centuries as a quick and soothing remedy for everything from sleep aid to cold remedy to dry throats. The tradition of drinking tea made from this daisy lookalike goes back at least to the Ancient Greeks, who coined the name which is a combination of khamos (ground), referencing the plant’s low-lying nature and melos (apple), which is a highlight of dried chamomile’s fragrant aroma.

Of the three types of chamomile (Roman, English and Egyptian), Egyptian is known as the highest grade and is abundant in the Nile River Valley.
