A decoction of camomile is familiar to many since childhood – it is believed that a camomile infusion is able to cure any ailment. In Ancient Egypt, priests successfully used camomile to treat nervous and sleep disorders. They believed that the origin of this flower was due to the sun god Ra. In the Roman Empire it was believed that camomiles were stars that fell from heaven, so they carry the divine power to heal people.
Camomile petals are rich in essential oils, which have a beneficial effect on the human body. Brewed camomile flowers are an excellent antipyretic agent due to their essential oils, which, by causing excessive sweating, remove toxins and viruses from the body, thereby lowering the body temperature. Surprisingly, the essential oil of white camomile is colored in bright blue.
