Useful Herbs: Chamomile

Written by Print  E-mail

Chamomile (sometimes pronounced with a silent "h") has not only been popular with modern alternative medicine practitioners, but its medicinal roots can be traced back for centuries. It is famous for its ability to ease discomfort in the digestive tract. It has also been used for:

  • Allergies
  • Indigestion
  • Anxiety
  • Migraines (resulting from allergies)
  • Colic
  • Crohn's disease
  • Diarrhea
  • Insomnia
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Peptic ulcers
  • Skin irritations
  • Minor wounds

Chamomile is effective as a mild sedative and for promoting restful sleep when infused into tea, or otherwise taken internally. It is ideal for anyone who suffers from insomnia, because it is very unlikely to cause drowsiness the following morning, so long at it is taken at a reasonable time in the evening. For those who suffer with insomnia, we urge you to deal with the cause; whether it is emotional or physical. In the meantime, chamomile will certainly help.

Chamomile is a useful remedy for insect bites when topically applied. It eliminates itching better and more rapidly than any pharmaceutical or retail product that we have found. Insect bites often disappear completely within hours of chamomile application, and the itching usually stops within minutes.

Topical applications of chamomile decrease the healing time necessary for wounds. To make a topical application solution, mix ground chamomile powder with vodka. These are the two methods of manufacture that we recommend. Method 1 is to blend chamomile flowers with vodka, and then strain after several weeks. Method 2 is to purchase chamomile as a supplement, and then empty the chamomile powder from the capsules into the vodka. It will be ready after a thorough mixing, but it will become much stronger with time. It is wise to make the solution long before it is needed, for maximum efficacy. It remains useful for a year.

Chamomile is known in some gardening circles as the "plant doctor", due to its ability to help the health of other plants growing nearby. It is also said to increase the production of essential oils in those nearby plants.

Chamomile contains a natural anti-histamine, so it helps to treat allergies and asthma. Be aware that large amounts will cause drowsiness.

Warning: Chamomile is a relative of ragweed and should be used with caution in those who suffer from ragweed allergies. If any allergic symptoms occur, then discontinue. As with all things, it is wise to begin usage on a small scale until you are certain of how it will effect you.

  • Heidi Stevenson  - Just one bit of info that readers should know.

    All of the above is true of chamomile - a most useful and versatile herb. It should, though, be used with the understand that it shouldn't be overused. In overdose, it causes the same symptoms it's known to help. If one or two cups of chamomile tea don't help you sleep, it's a good idea to stop taking more. You may just find the problem worsens.

    However, you might consider trying a homeopathic preparation of chamomile for your symptoms when the herb itself doesn't help.

  • Alfredo  - Another use for Chamomile

    It is very good for pink eye, more effective than the medicine's they sell for it. Simply make the tea, don't add sugar and when it cools use an eyedropper to drop it directly into the eye. Your pink eye will be just about gone in 2 days.
