For thousands of years, the herb Chamomile has been known and used for its many soothing, calming and healing properties.
Both Roman and German Chamomile, the two main species, have strongly aromatic apple-scented leaves with daisy-like flowers. Roman Chamomile has been used medicinally in Europe for over 2,000 years. In Saxon times it was regarded as one of the nine sacred herbs.
With a wide range of properties, Chamomile is used to treat various healthrelated challenges. As a sedative herb, it works on various levels affecting the nervous system, digestive system, respiratory system, skin and mucous membranes. As an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-oxidant and mild astringent, Chamomile supports the healing of wounds, ulcers and inflammatory skin conditions. Chamomile also assists various digestive conditions including colic, travel sickness, nausea, vomiting and mouth and gum infections.
The well-known calming effect of Chamomile also supports the nervous system and emotional challenges by reducing anxiety, calming nerves, as well as aiding insomnia, nightmares and other sleep disorders.
