Description. Chamomile has been known of since ancient times and has been called the plant's physician because ailing garden plants recover when it is planted close to them. Chamomile is one of the most widely used ingredients in herbal teas worldwide. An infusion of the flowers is taken internally as an anodyne, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antispasmodic, carminative, cholagogue, diaphoretic, emmenagogue, febrifuge, sedative, stomachic, tonic and stimulating metabolism. In particular it is an excellent herb for various digestive disorders, kidney inflammations, nervous tension and irritability and is also used externally for skin problems. Use. An infusion is particularly useful as a stomachic, nervine and sedative for young children, especially when they are teething. It is also used for irritable bowel syndrome, peptic ulcers and hiatus hernia. In large doses, or when taken regularly for several times each day, the tea can be emetic and can also cause the symptoms it is intended to cure. The flowers are also used externally to treat wounds, sunburn, burns, hemorrhoids, mastitis and leg ulcers, as a mouthwash in case of dental inflammations. We believe that every home should have therapeutic chamomile in their medicine cupboard - especially where there are young children.
