What is chamomile?


Chamomile flowers are known for their diversity and abundance, with many species existing, often making them challenging to distinguish, even for experts. However, at Love Co. two types of chamomile are predominantly used, both of which hold a special place in European folk medicine and are distinguishable by their distinct appearances. The first type is German chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla syn. Matricaria recutita), which bears a strong resemblance to a daisy with its bright, sun-like center encircled by delicate white petals.

What are the benefits of chamomile?

Chamomile flowers offer a range of beneficial properties, making them a cherished ingredient in various applications.

 

Soothing: Chamomile is renowned for its soothing effects, particularly on the skin, helping to calm irritations and reduce inflammation.
Antiseptic: The natural antiseptic properties of chamomile flowers contribute to their ability to cleanse and protect the skin from bacterial and fungal infections.
Promotes Calm and Restful Sleep: Inhalation of the oils extracted from chamomile flowers is believed to promote a calm and restful state, aiding in better sleep quality. This is especially effective when combined with lavender, as both herbs share complementary soothing properties and their scents harmonize well together, enhancing their relaxation benefits.
