chamomile flower

Chamomile is one of the most popular herbs used to brew tea. In fact, a cup of chamomile tea is a carminative nervine traditionally served to counter an upset stomach or a case of frazzled nerves.

The herb is also used to produce a wide variety of personal care products, including natural perfumes. Infused in a carrier oil, such as apricot kernel or sweet almond, chamomile lends a light, fruity scent that blends well with floral herbs, such as geranium, rose, lavender, bergamot, clary sage, sandalwood and ylang-ylang.
