The “apple” of the Earth

Camomile is an aromatic plant whose healing properties have been known for thousands of years.

Egyptians were the first to dedicate it to Ra, the sun god, this plant was used throughout the centuries to celebrate the father of nature by several other cultures.
Thanks to its scent, Camomile was added to incense to boost relaxation, meditation and prayer.

Camomile has got several qualities: it’s calming, antispasmodic and reduces inflammation, relaxes and tonifies the nervous system and is paramount when anxiety and tension cause digestive troubles.
