As a pagan and a practicing herbalist I want to share the uses of herbs in both magic and everyday life. Each day I'll discuss a herb of the day.

Anthemis nobilis (Roman)
Matricaria recutita (German)

“For though the Camomile, the more it is trodden on the faster it grows, yet youth, the more it is wasted the sooner it wears.”
Falstaff, Henry IV, Part 1, Act II, iv, line 400

Revered by the ancient Egyptians as sacred to the Sun God, Chamomile was strewn on floors to fragrance rooms.
Recommended for flatulence and dispepsia, Chamomile is also used for fevers, burns, as an anti-inflammatory for wounds, and as a sedative.
It is an efficient insect repellant, and an excellent hair rinse for blondes.

Magical Properties

It is beleived that a few Chamomile flowers carried in the purse or wallet will help to draw money. Used in prosperity spells.
