Handmade

German Chamomile produces tiny, daisy-like, apple-scented flowers that may be harvested 55 to 65 days after sowing. German chamomile, the variety preferred for making tea, originates in southern and eastern Europe; it has a distinctive apple/pineapple like scent. Ancient authorities such as Hippocrates and Galen wrote of the medical benefits of chamomile, and it remains a popular and effective herbal remedy in modern times.

As a tea or infusion, chamomile gives a feeling of relaxation and drowsiness, making it an excellent treatment for insomnia or anxiety. Because of the herb's antiseptic, anti-inflammatory properties, skin preparations including chamomile benefit conditions such as eczema, rashes, or insect bites. The dried flowers and leaves also make a sweet scented addition to sachets or potpourri. In the garden, chamomile attracts beneficial insects and pollinators.

~ germination ~

Days to emerge: 10 to 15. In short growing seasons, chamomile can be started inside; start the seeds in a flat 2-3 weeks before the last spring frost date, and transplant them after the last frost. This herb prefers full sun or partial shade in sandy or well drained soil. Germination should take place within 1-2 weeks. German Chamomile also grows well as a container plant.
