The sandy soil and nutrients from the Nile River region create perfect growing conditions for Chamomile. Chamomile flowers have a yellow center and white petals - they almost look like a daisy. Essential oils in the flowers produce a soothing pleasant aroma and a fruity character.
Chamomile can be made into a pleasant aromatic tea which is slightly bitter but with a fruity flavor. It is often sipped for relief of health problems ranging from toothache to nervousness. Chamomile has also been noted as beneficial for soothing headaches and is a natural relaxing herb known to assist the restless and those suffering from insomnia. In many circles Chamomile is called nighty night tea or sleepy tea on account of its natural properties, which promote restfulness and drowsiness. It is also known to assist digestive disorders by settling the stomach and calming the nerves. Chamomile is derived from ancient Greek and translates as "Ground Apple" in reference to the fruity aroma. Like many teas and herbs chamomile should be consumed without the addition of milk but this does not preclude additives such as honey, lime, lemon, cinnamon, etc.. One of the fun things to do with a widely used herb like chamomile is to make your own blend.
