Chamomile has been used as a medicinal herb for centuries. It belongs to the Asteraceae/ Compositae family.

Chamomile tea has been linked to weight loss by a few sources but there is no substantial scientific evidence supporting these claims.

Among its species, German chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) and Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) are used to make chamomile tea. The terpenoids and flavonoids contained in the dried flowers give chamomile its medicinal properties.

This traditional herbal tea can be used to relieve insomnia, anxiety, upset stomach, menstrual cramps and can even be used topically to sooth rashes and inflamed skin.
