out in the garden today i found that my chamomile (Matricaria chamomile) is finally in bloom. i have tried to grow this so many times - and think i solved the problem... no direct hot sun. it gets way to hot here -  so i placed it behind some other plants where it can get nice morning and early afternoon sun - but not the scorching late afternoon sun.

chamomile is a mild sedative, good for insomnia and nervousness. it is a nervine, sedative and antispasmodic. it has anti-inflammatory properties that are good for rheumatism, arthritis, and other painful swellings. lt can be helpful with menstrual cramps or gas pains.
