Herbs, Oils & Nature: Chamomile

Chamomile took its name from the Greek word meaning “apple”, a reference to the distinct apple scent when it is crushed. The ancients Egyptians revered the Matricaria recutita or Chamomile for its healing powers that they dedicated it to the Gods – sacred to the Sun God Ra as did to the Teutons, who dedicated to their Sun God, Baldur.

Applied subjectively, a proprietary chamomile cream was shown to be effective as low-dose, over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream for relieving eczema, heal diaper rash, skin irritations and minor wounds.
