Chamomile is an age-old medicinal herb known in ancient Egypt. It’s been used since ancient times for their calming and anti-inflammatory, soothing properties. The plant's healing properties come from its daisy-like flowers, which contain oils including bisabolol, bisabolol oxides A and B, and matricin, as well as flavonoids and other therapeutic substances.
Chamomile has been used for centuries in skin care formulations. Chamomile flowers are a soothing additive for irritated skin, eczema, psoriasis and hemorrhoids. To make a gentle but absorbent body powder, grind chamomile flowers and combine with arrowroot powder, white kaolin clay, cornstarch, grounded lavender buds and grounded calendula.
