Chamomile General Information
There are two plants known as Chamomile and they are used interchangeably. One is the German plant, Matricaria recutita. The second is a Roman plant known as Chamaemelum nobile. Both Chamomile plants look like miniature daises, and both are thought to possess similar medicinal purposes. Although called Roman Chamomile it was not cultivated until the 16th Century and probably arrived via Britain and used as a medicinal plant every since. German Chamomile has been taken for digestive problems since at least the 1st Century. Early Egyptian physicians used Chamomile tea for fevers. Hieroglyphic records also show that Chamomile was used cosmetically for at least 2,000 years. Egyptian noblewomen used preparations of crushed petals on their skin. Ancient Greeks, Romans, and Indians used this herb to treat disorders of the kidneys, liver, and bladder, and to relieve headaches. More than a million cups of Chamomile tea is consumed daily.

Chamomile Lore
It was believed that it brought health to one’s gardens and promoted healing energies, which were good for all plant species. Whereas Centuary is a patron herb for herbalists, Chamomile is a patron herb for the gardens. Chamomile is one of the “Nine Sacred Herbs” of the “Lacnunga”, an ancient Anglo-Saxon manuscript. The strong association Chamomile has with the Sun is an underlying indication of its modern usage. Through incense or ritual drink it is used to assist a priest’s call to the Sun God (those working with any of the solar deities). Some traditions have used Chamomile at Midsummer to give honor to the Father of Nature.

Chamomile Uses & Scientific Evidence For
This herb has antiseptic, sedative, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties and it also acts as an antihistamine. In 1921, a topical form of Chamomile was introduced to treat a wide variety of skin disorders such as eczema, bedsores, post radiation therapy skin inflammation, and contact dermatitis. Germany’s Commission E recommends topical Chamomile preparations for diseases of the skin and mouth. The Commission also recommends oral Chamomile for the treatment of pain and inflammation in the intestines and stomach. Chamomile is a wonderful relaxant for the nervous system and digestion, and a perfect remedy for babies and children. Chamomile relaxes smooth muscle throughout the body. In the digestive tract chamomile relieves tension and spasm, colic, abdominal pain, wind, distension, diarrhea and constipation. Chamomile tea reduces a fever and helps soothe colds, flu, sore throats, and coughs. The tea is also used for mild tension and stress. Chamomile works well as a general pain reliever and is often used for headache, migraines, neuralgia, toothache, earache, cramps, rheumatic and pains associated with gout. Its antiseptic oils soothe an inflamed bladder and cystitis. Inhaling Chamomile vapor works well for asthma, hay fever and other lung problems.

Chamomile Research and Studies
German Studies in 1987 showed that a cream made from German Chamomile had the ability to heal wounds. In 2006 a study showed that Chamomile oil showed “high levels” of antiviral activity against the herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). Paul Schnitzler, PhD, of the Hygiene Institute at Germany’s University of Heidelberg was part of this test and found; of all the oils that were tested Chamomile oil was particularly good at targeting HSV-1 and it probably would not cause irritation if applied to the skin. Research done in 2004 showed that patients treated with chemotherapy or radiotherapy could use a Chamomile mouthwash. This mouthwash when applied to protect delayed the onset and reduced the severity of mucositis. Mucositis is inflammation of the mucous membranes lining the digestive tract from the mouth to the anus. In 2004 it was found that the itching of Chicken Pox could be helped with Chamomile soap. When in a warm bath for 20-30 minutes this soap is awesome for sensitive skin. More research done in 2004 found that the theory that herbal tea containing Chamomile has medicinal benefits. This study was published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that Chamomile tea contains compounds that may help fight infections due to colds and relieve menstrual cramps.

Chamomile Safety & Interaction Information
Chamomile is listed on the FDA’s “generally recognized as safe” list, yet there have been some reports that it can cause severe reactions in people allergic to ragweed; however, evidence studied to date does not suggest that Chamomile is any more allergenic than any other plant. Excessive use of Chamomile is not recommended for those using anticoagulants. Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known.
