Chamomile

Dried chamomile flower is an age-old medicinal drug popularity grown throughout the Middle Ages. Recent and ongoing research has identified chamomile’s specific anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-allergenic and sedative properties, validating its long-held reputation. This attention appears to have increased the popularity of the herb and currently Chamomile is included as a drug in the pharmacopoeia of 26 countries.

Chamomile has been mainly used in teas as a mild, relaxing sleep aid, treatment for fevers, colds, stomach ailments, and as an anti-inflammatory. Extensive scientific research over the past two decades has confirmed many of the traditional uses for the plant and established pharmacological mechanisms for the plant’s therapeutic qualities, including antipeptic, antispasmodic, antipyretic, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiallergenic activity.
