Scientific name: Matricaria recutita and Chamaemelum nobilus

Family: Asteraceae

Part used: flowers

Common names: German chamomile and Roman chamomile

Introduction:
Chamomile, a member of the daisy (Asteraceae) family, is a well-known traditional medicinal plant. German chamomile (Matricaria recutita, synonym Chamomilla recutita) and Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile, syn. Anthemis nobilus) are the two most widely used herbs in this family.
 
The flowers look very like daisy flowers and have a yellow central disc surrounded by white petals. German chamomile (M. recutita), is the species most used medicinally but another common chamomile species which looks very like it and has also been used medicinally for centuries, is Roman chamomile (C. nobile). The essential oil and chemical constituents of Roman chamomile and German chamomile are quite different and Roman chamomile is now more widely used in topical preparations.
