Commonly called German chamomile, this daisylike flower is one of the world's safest and most widely used herbs. (Even Peter Rabbit's mother gave chamomile tea to her famous offspring at the end of a bad day to help him relax.) The ancient Anglo-Saxons believed that chamomile was one of nine sacred herbs given to humans by the god Woden. Today, many people call on chamomile to soothe their stomachs and much more.
