The word camomile is derived from the Greek chamos (ground) and melos (apple), referring to its low growing habit and its apple scented blooms. Its daisy-like flowers reminded the ancient Egyptians of the sun, calling it "herb of the sun". The presence of lemongrass, gives the blend a nice citrus finish.
It is with great pride that we are now using camomile from Egypt, harvested by a small Fair Trade cooperative. Fair Trade helps farmers and their families make a better living by ensuring they are paid a fair price for their crops.
