Roman chamomile (Chamæmelum nobile) is known for its soothing nature. It is ideal for times when peaceful, yet powerful, action is needed. It has a long association with gentle action and has traditionally been used in children’s recipes and blends.
German and Roman chamomile are related, but very distant cousins. Their flowers look alike but not much else is similar. Roman chamomile grows to 1 foot tall and is a perennial. While also having different chemistries, they do share some attributes and can be used in similar ways.
