Traditions:                

Chamomile is one of the oldest British medicinal and beauty herbs.  Traditionally it was said to cure all agues.  Was used during World War II as a disinfectant.  The word chamomile comes from the Greek word chamaimēlon, meaning, "earth-apple", so called because of the apple like scent of the plant.  Egyptian priests recognised its soothing properties where nervous complaints were concerned.
