Chamomile is a daisy-like plant that comes from the Asteraceae family. We all know it as a herbal infusion that has health benefits, but did you know it also has great skincare benefits?
What Is Chamomile?
Let’s go back to the very beginning. Chamomile flowers date back to the land of the pyramids in Ancient Egypt. It was used to treat fever, sore throat, and even the common cold. Chamomile is often served as a soothing nightcap for its relaxing benefits. Chamomile is known as nature’s medicine for its healing properties. For centuries, chamomile has been used in lotions, oils, tinctures, tisanes, and teas to help treat all kinds of ailments.
There are two types of common chamomile – Roman chamomile and German chamomile. The Roman Chamomile (AKA Anthemis Nobilis) is sweet and shot with notes of fruit, whereas the German (Matricaria Chamomilla) is wilder and pungent.
