Chamomile, Zloty Lan (Organic)

Matricaria recutita.

A unique Polish tetraploid variety. Tetraploid plants naturally have more cell chromosomes which usually results in larger and more vigorous plants. Zloty Lan is certainly bigger and higher yielding with a strong, tall growth habit. We find it has a wonderful aroma that is somewhat less sweet than Bodegold. The dried flowers steeped in hot water for less then a few minutes make a soothing and calming tea for relaxing the mind and body. When steeped longer than a few minutes however it may become stimulating and enlivening for some. Chamomile is an easy tea herb to grow at home and is one of the key herbs used in biodynamic compost preparations. Bred in Poland for commercial production and high essential oil content, reported to be between 0.8-1.5% of which 4-12% is bisabolol and 15-20% chamazulene. The compounds in chamomile have been extensively studied for their health effects, many of which are antiinflammatory and anti-cancerous.
