Harvesting chamomile is a continuous activity, since chamomile flowers will bloom all summer long, especially if picked regularly. Chamomile flowers are ready to harvest when they are at full bloom, just before the tiny white petals begin to droop down. It’s not unsafe to harvest the blossoms if they’re a little premature or a little droopy, it’s just that the beneficial properties may not be at their fullest and most potent state. The best time to harvest chamomile is early morning when the dew has dried.
Allow flowers to air dry by spreading them out in a single layer and leaving them in a dark warm place for 1-2 weeks. Flowers can also be dried in a food dehydrator or in a very low oven. Store dried flowers in a sealed container.
