Chamomile Seeds - German - Organic
German Chamomile can grow up to 22 inches tall and 12 inches wide, and has many thin branches of finely divided green leaves. Tiny 3/4 inch white and sunshine yellow daisy-like flowers appear from early summer to fall. German Chamomile will grow in many soils, but is most happy in light sandy soils. Treat just like you would plant most wildflowers and cover very lightly with fine soil. German chamomile is used medicinally against sore stomach, irritable bowel syndrome, and as a gentle sleep aid. It is also used as a mild laxative. For a sore stomach, some recommend taking a cup every morning without food for two to three months. It is also used as a mouthwash against oral mucositis. It has acaricidal properties against certain mites, such as Psoroptes cuniculi.
