Chamomile, a relative of the daisy, is best known in the West as a tea that helps people relax and go to sleep. There are quite a few types of chamomile – the type we sell, Roman chamomile, is the one most used for chamomile tea, commonly used to treat an upset stomach, sleeping problems, or menstrual pain. It’s a gentle herb that has been used continually in many countries for centuries – so gentle that babies can drink chamomile tea for colic – and flourishes in our warm, steady climate.

Chamomile was known in ancient Egypt (where it was offered to the gods), Greece, and Rome. It grew even more popular during the Middle Ages, when people used to cure all sorts of medical complaints, including asthma, colic, fevers, inflammations, nausea, nervous complaints, children’s ailments, skin diseases, and cancer.

Today we think of it most in tea form as a mild, relaxing sleep aid, treatment for fevers, colds, and stomach ailments, and an anti-inflammatory. But it can be used both internally and externally. Twenty years of scientific research has confirmed many of the traditional uses for chamomile and proven anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, muscle relaxant, antispasmodic, anti-allergenic, sedative, anti-peptic, antipyretic, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.

Use our chamomile fresh, or dry it, to:

  • Drink as a tea for lumbago, rheumatic problems, and rashes.
  • Incorporate into a salve for hemorrhoids and wounds.
  • Steam as a vapor to alleviate cold symptoms or asthma.
  • Relieve restlessness, teething problems, and colic in children.
  • Relieve allergies, much as an antihistamine would.
  • Aid in digestion when taken as a tea after meals.
  • Relieve morning sickness during pregnancy.
  • Speed healing of skin ulcers, wounds, or burns.
  • Treat gastritis and ulcerative colitis.
  • Reduce inflammation and facilitate bowel movement without acting directly as a purgative.
  • Be used as a wash or compress for skin problems and inflammations, including inflammations of mucous tissue.
  • Promote general relaxation and relieve stress. Animal studies show that chamomile contains substances that act on the same parts of the brain and nervous system as anti-anxiety drugs. (Never stop taking prescription medications, however, without consulting your doctor.)
  • Control insomnia. Chamomile’s mildly sedating and muscle-relaxing effects may help those who suffer from insomnia to fall asleep more easily.
  • Treat diverticular disease, irritable bowel problems, and various gastrointestinal complaints. Chamomile’s reported anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic actions relax the smooth muscles lining the stomach and intestine. The herb may therefore help to relieve nausea, heartburn, and stress-related flatulence. It may also be useful in the treatment of diverticular disorders and inflammatory bowel conditions such as Crohn’s disease.
  • Soothe skin rashes (including eczema), minor burns, and sunburn. Used as a lotion or added in oil form to a cool bath, chamomile may ease the itching of eczema and other rashes and reduces skin inflammation. It may also speed healing and prevent bacterial infection.
  • Treat eye inflammation and infection. Cooled chamomile tea can be used in a compress to help soothe tired, irritated eyes; it may even help treat conjunctivitis.
  • Heal mouth sores and prevent gum disease. A chamomile mouthwash may help soothe mouth inflammations and keep gums healthy.
  • Reduce menstrual cramps. Chamomile’s believed ability to relax the smooth muscles of the uterus helps ease the discomfort of menstrual cramping.
