Pick a sunny spot in your garden.
Till some compost onto the ground and rake it smooth.
Simply grab a handful of seeds and throw them over the soil (make sure it's a sunny area).
Chamomile seeds do not need to be planted directly into the ground – they'll germinate easily just by being thrown onto the soil.
After “planting” water the soil well.
Once the plants have germinated and have developed a few leaves, thin them out, leaving about a 6″ space in between each plant.
Pick chamomile after the morning dew has dried off.
Just pinch off the flower heads to harvest them.
To dry chamomile, spread it out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in a dry area, such as on top of the fridge.
When a flower head crumbles easily in between your fingers, your chamomile is ready and dry (this should only take a few hours!).
Store in a clean, airtight jar in a cool, dark place.
You can make a number of different things with chamomile including teas, salves, and lotions!
