The Story Behind The Petal
If you’ve ever been curious about the origins of dried chamomile, you’re not alone. This beloved herb has a long and interesting history that dates back thousands of years. While most commonly known for its calming effects when brewed in tea, mainstream skincare has embraced this ancient remedy as an invaluable ingredient to combat inflammation and irritation. Ancient Egyptians were some of the earliest users of dried chamomile for both culinary and medicinal purposes. Ancient Greeks followed suit by using it in teas and potions to reduce swelling and heal wounds. Later on, Romans embraced it for its anti-inflammatory properties, often adding it to herbal baths to soothe skin aches or after too much overindulgence with wine!
