Often the first thing one thinks of when they think of chamomile is tea. Indeed, the small daisy like flowers are often dried and brewed as if a tea. Chamomile has a long history as an herbal medicine and remedy. In gin, chamomile often expresses itself with notes that resemble the herb as a tea. Chamomile has a tropical, fruity floral smell that some say is redolent of apple and hay.
The round, yellow centre of the flower is actually a composite of many tiny flowers fused together, a common characteristic of sunflowers and other plants in the aster family.
Chamomile flowers contain a rich mixture of aromatic and medicinal compounds that are strongest just after the flowers ripen and dry. In addition to their well-known sedative qualitties, pharmacological studies show that the flowers' anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects actually do help calm the stomach.
