Chamamelom noble or Matricaria recutita
Used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Vikings, chamomile was referred to as the “do anything” herb because of its reputation as a whole-body healer. Nicholas Culpeper, a world-renowned herbalist who lived in the 17th century, prescribe it for a number of ailments including fever, heart disease, aches and pains and menstrual cramps.
Sleep Aid: But most people are familiar with chamomile’s ability to gently rock us to sleep. Chamomile contains a mild sedative that helps to soothe frazzled nerves and lessen anxiety --- two things that can keep anyone from a sound slumber.
It is one of the gentlest sleep inducers around, relaxing the central nervous system, yet eliminating that :groggy” feeling that many prescription and over-the-counter sleep aids cause the next morning.
