Indeed, in German and Nordic mythology, it is one of the nine sacred plants that the sky god Odin gave to men. Its name of "matricaire" comes from the Latin "matri" which means "mother", because it was mainly used to treat what one called at the time the "diseases of the women". In the language of flowers, Chamomile expresses "patience in the face of adversity". Its fragrant flowers with white petals and yellow hearts that appear between May and October are among the most studied plants and the most used in herbal medicine. Indeed, thanks to its warm and sweet scent, Chamomile has the virtue of deeply calming restless spirits while rebalancing them. Also known in hair care to maintain shine and lighten blonde hair.
