Want some tea? Go out into the fields on a hot summer day and pick the chamomile blossoms yourself. One by one. In that way, you are choosing only the very best of the flowers. The ones that seem to seduce you, that look like they wanted to be picked. The gorgeous, healthy and potent ones with a beaming yellow center framed by bright white pedals. And … before you leave, be kind enough to create an even exchange by giving the plant a splash out of your water bottle. ∎

In these last years, I did drink a lot of chamomile tea. There was obviously a need for soothing with these plants during tumultuous, harsh times.
