Herbs and flowers



Roman Camomile, Anthemis nobilis camomile

Family of compositae

Anybody who has never seen the sight of a cornfield with poppies and camomile has lost the vision which best represents the idea of healthiness and beauty of the countryside.

Everybody knows the flavour of a cup of camomile when suffering of insomnia. But the plant has also tonic and antispasmodic affects. Women use it as a sedative for painful menstruation and like a shampoo to lighten the hair.
