Regular price $3.79

Anacyclus pyrethrum (pellitory, Spanish chamomile, or Mount Atlas daisy) is a perennial herb much like chamomile in habitat and appearance. It is in a different family (Asteraceae) from the plants known as pellitory-of-the-wall (Parietaria Officinalis) and spreading pellitory (Parietaria judaica).

It is found in North Africa, elsewhere in the Mediterranean region, in the Himalayas, in North India, and in Arabian countries.


It is popular as a food spice. It induces heat, tingling, and redness when applied to the skin.

Ayurveda (the ancient Indian medicine system) and Siddha (the medicine system from Tamil Nadu, a southern state of India) use this plant root. It is called Akkal-Kara in Hindi, Akkal Kadha in Marathi, and Akkarakaaram. An oil is prepared by a method known as pit extraction.
