Shownotes

Which chamomlie is typically used to make a soothing herbal brew? What garden conditions are required for chamomile to flourish? Throughout history chamomiles have been used extensively medicinally, cosmetically and aesthetically. In this episode we'll take a look at Matricaria recutita (syn. M. chamomlia) and Chamaemelum nobile (syn. Anthemis nobilis), both known commonly as chamomile.
