Description 

Matricaria recutita, a member of the Compositae (Asteraceae, daisy) family, is an annual that can grow as tall as 1 m in the right soil (usually up to 60 cm). The alternate leaves are bipinnatisect, delicately lobed and thread-like, ending in a point. The flower consists of 12 to 16 white ligules (ray florets, 10 to 15 mm long) surrounding the central mound of tiny yellow flowers (disc florets, five-lobed), which are embedded in a hollow, conical receptacle. The flower head is 1.2 to 2.4 cm in diameter. The light-coloured fruits are very small achenes, without outside oil glands. Chamomile has been used medicinally for thousands of years and was known by ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian cultures.  Chamomilla recutita (Asteraceae) is used worldwide as a soothing, anti-inflammatory and aromatherapy.
