Roman Chamomile is a perennial, small and creeping plant with daisy-like flowers. The plant has a wonderful, sweet, fruity scent and is commonly used to make herbal infusions for medicinal uses. While it is probably the most popular and well-known therapeutic plant, chamomile is also a popular ingredient in a number of magical rituals. When it comes to deities, chamomile is linked to Cernunnos, Ra, Helios, and other sun gods. At the same time, the Vikings had a more practical use for chamomile, adding it to their hair shampoos to aid in the lightening of blond hair. In a number of folk magic traditions, particularly those of the American south, chamomile is known as a lucky flower and, if you're a gambler, washing your hands in chamomile tea will ensure good luck at the gaming tables.
