Chamomile and Elderflower Decoction
Matricaria Chamomilla and Sambucus Nigra
Chamomile soothes and gently cleanses the skin and scalp. Elderflower has been called ‘people’s medicine chest’ by many of the nations that use its fruit and flowers. Together in a decoction, they are used to soften, soothe and calm the skin.
Chamomile is an evergreen perennial plant with aromatic leaves. In summer, long stalked, solitary flowers are produced, with creamy white or yellow discs. Elderflower is a popular ornamental shrub, valued for its flowers and berries, both of which are popular in drinks, food and traditional medicines. To make our decoction, we steep the dried flowers in boiling water.
