Number 1 - Chamomile

As a basic, let us start with one of the basic herbs to any practitioner: the Chamomile flower, Matricria chamomilla.

Daisy-like in appearance, the chamomile flower is used mainly for relaxation and sleep aid. Used as treatment for insomnia.

However, as with all herbs, be careful in mixing with any prescribed medicines such as blood thinners such as Warfarin.

It is commonly sold in supermarkets as a tea with honey and vanillas. The flowers can also be used in herbal cigarettes as a relaxing smoke.
