Your order is protected with the LocalHarvest money back guarantee.
German Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla), annual, is one of the most popular herbs used in the West. It is also one of the earliest to bloom in the spring, and its tiny, daisy like flowers make a minty-apple fragranced and tasty tea, which is known for its soothing and calming properties.
Direct sow seed early in spring, in a nice well drained area that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight daily. You will soon be rewarded with lots of gorgeous, ferny leaved plants which will continue to produce flowers as long as you keep them picked. Plants will reseed themselves easily, so plant where you would like for them to maintain a permanent home in your garden.
For use as an herbal tea - pick the flowers soon after they open. They smell like a minty green apple. Steep flowers (use qty to taste) in water for at least 30 minutes. Strain to remove the flowers, sweeten with raw honey, if desired. Enjoy!
The tea also makes a nice addition to bath water, and will leave your skin soft and smelling like a green apple!
