  • Ingredients

    Chamomile

    A low-growing, daisy-like annual native to Europe and Asia and known to medicine from classical

    antiquity, chamomile is commonly found in overgrown fields. Its name is derived from the Greek word

    that means “earth apple” on account of the scent of its fresh blossoms.

    Dandelion

    For all the brilliant yellow profusion of its flowers, dandelion is a perennial plant so common and

    hardy that it is considered a weed throughout the northern hemisphere. Nonetheless, it has impressive

    healing properties, and there’s a good reason why its Latin name means “remedy for disease.”

    Ginger

    A large tuberous perennial with yellow blossoms and narrow green leaves that stands about a metre high,

    ginger has its origins in southern Asia, but can now be found in nearly all tropical and subtropical

    countries.
