Chamomile is one of the most ancient medicinal herbs known to mankind. The word Chamomile is based in ancient Greek and means roughly, “earth apple” and is used to describe an assorted variety of different daisy-looking plants, that are members of the Asteraceae family. There are at least seven different species of chamomile, represented by two common varieties viz. German (Marticaria recutita) and Roman (Chamaemelum nobile). They have been used to the tune of 1,000,000 cups per day (yes, you read that right, ONE MILLION) for their calming and anti-inflammatory properties.

Chamomile is an age-old medicinal herb known in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. Chamomile’s popularity grew throughout the Middle Ages when people turned to it as a remedy for numerous medical complaints including asthma, colic, fevers, inflammations, nausea, nervous complaints, children’s ailments, skin diseases and cancer. As a popular remedy, it may be thought of as the European counterpart of the Chinese tonic Ginseng.

Chamomile has been used for centuries in tincture form and teas as a mild, relaxing sleep aid, treatment for fevers, colds, stomach ailments, and as an anti-inflammatory, to name only a few therapeutic uses. Chamomile may be used internally or externally. Extensive scientific research over the past 20 years has confirmed many of the traditional uses for the plant and established pharmacological mechanisms for the plant’s therapeutic activity, including anti-peptic, antispasmodic, anti-pyretic, antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-allergenic activity.

Recent and on-going research has identified chamomile tincture’s specific anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, muscle relaxant, antispasmodic, anti-allergenic and sedative properties, validating its long-held reputation. This attention appears to have increased the popularity of the herb and nowadays Chamomile is included as a drug in the pharmacopoeia of 26 countries.
