Chamomile flowers have been steeped and enjoyed as a soothing tea for centuries. Most tea bags and mixes use dried flowers and leaves but the fresh flowers have an extraordinary flavor and they’re very pretty. You can also dry the flowers at home to make tea in the future.
While tea is probably the most common association with chamomile, it has lots of other uses, too. As a culinary herb, chamomile adds a light floral flavor to desserts though it’s best used by infusing butter, oil or another ingredient. When it comes to skin care, chamomile is a champion. It’s relaxing, soothing and anti-inflammatory, making it perfect in baths or as part of a salve or balm.
