The medicinal properties of chamomile are known since antiquity, with references from the father of medicine Hippocrates. The ancient Egyptians had dedicated it to the Sun God who was the healer of infectious diseases. Its name in Greek means apple of the ground and the Christians have dedicated to St. George because it flowers close to the holiday of his name.
