In Greek chamomile translates to 'ground apple.'
Today chamomile tea is often referred to as 'Roman Chamomile', although the tea was drunk extensively in ancient Rome, the name 'Roman Chamomile' was given to the herb by a botanist who found it growing in the Coliseum in the 19th century.
There are two main types of chamomile, Roman chamomile and German Chamomile, Chamomile found in Norther Europe was likely first cultivated by the Romans during their reign.
Each variety has slight differences in its exact makeup, but the major similarities are the essential oils, volatile oils, valerianic acid, flavonoids, salicylates and tannins they contain.
