Whether young or old, everyone has heard of chamomile. It is one of the most well-known native herbs in Europe and was highly regarded in Ancient Egypt thanks to its many applications. The Egyptians considered it sacred and worshiped it as the flower of the Sun God because of the yellow receptacle. Today, it is still considered an all-rounder for wounds, colds or sleeping disorders.
Hieronymus Bock, a famous botanist from the Middle Ages, was also fascinated by the diverse effects of chamomile. In his herbal book from 1577 he wrote that chamomile could not be praised enough for all its effects. He also describes, for example, the pain-relieving effect of chamomile oil. Its many positive properties make this medicinal plant very popular today.
