Chamomile – one of the Organic Herbs and Spices from Crete...

The word Chamomile is derived from the Greek words for "ground" and "apple," because it grows close to the ground and its strong aroma is very like fresh apples. It is renowned for its many medicinal and therapeutic properties ranging from an aid to digestion, headache cure, sleep aid and stress reliever.

It is used as an herbal tea and in Crete and Greece it is very popular.

The ancient Greeks believed Chamomile to be a sacred herb and associated its use with the sun god Apollo.
