What Chamomile herb Is:

Nature grows two different chamomiles—German chamomile and Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis). To an amateur, they're almost indistinguishable from each other. Their flowers resemble daisies, with yellow centers and white petals, and both have down-covered stems and fine, feathery, light green leaves. Both also smell a little like apple.

For medicinal purposes, you might prefer the German version, an annual that was introduced to North America from Europe and now occasionally grows wild from the northern East Coast and Newfoundland as far west as Minnesota. GIFs also known as Hungarian chamomile, common chamomile, and wild chamomile.

A popular herbal tea, Chamomile herb has many beneficial effects. It is anti- inflammatory, anti-allergy, aids digestion, relieves muscle spasm, is a relaxant and has wound-healing effects.
