Historical notes:

 

The word Chamomile comes from the Greek meaning "ground apple", probably because of its apple-like fragrance

The word ‘chamomile’originates from the Greek ‘χαμαίμηλον’ (chamaimēlon) meaning "earth-apple", which in turn comes χαμαί (chamai) meaning "on the ground" and ‘μήλον’ (mēlon) meaning "apple". It is so called because of the apple-like scent of the closely related Roman chamomile plant.

 

Some of the greatest men of ancient Greek history included chamomile in their writings. Hippocrates, known as ‘The Father of Modern Medicine’ (460 BC – 377 BC) described chamomile as a medicinal plant. Chamomile tea was apparently highly recommended by Greek physician Asclepiades (c. 124 or 129 – 40 BC).  Dioscorides,physician and botanist(40–90 AD), used chamomile to heal intestinal, nervous and liver disorders and prescribed it for women's ailments.
