The plant has a smooth stem that reaches a height of 8-36 inches (20-92cm) and develops shallow roots. The flowers look like those of the daisy plant. They consist of white petals and a conical yellow center.

Folklore of Chamomile: 

Chamomile dates back thousands of years to Ancient Egypt where it was considered a sacred gift from the Sun God, Ra. Hieroglyphics show that chamomile was used in skincare by Egyptian noblewomen. History goes to show that both the Egyptians and the ancient Romans used chamomile in tea, salves, creams, incenses and other beverages.
