Chamomile Flowers:

Chamomile flowers are best known for the delicious aromatic herbal tea that they produce. The tea is so popular, it is found in most grocery stores across America. Chamomile flowers are widely used as a mild sedative, and is good for insomnia as well as many other nervous conditions.

Chamomile flowers are nervine and sedative especially suited to teething children and those who have been in a highly emotional state over a long period of time. Except for the small risk of allergy, Chamomile is one of the safest herbs to use.

Chamomile flowers are used in alternative medicine as an anodyne, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, nervine and digestion aid. Additional uses in herbal medicine include an antispasmodic for intestinal and menstrual cramps, relieving gas pains, and a very mild but efficient laxative. Their healing properties come from there daisylike flowers, that contain volatile oils (including bisabolol oxides A and B, and matricin) as well as flavonoids.

But the best thing about chamomile flowers are that they are such a great tasting way to enjoy the benefits of healthful, wholesome herbs!


Excerpts from The How to Herb Book

  • Soothing and relaxing to nerves, helps sleep.
  • Improves the appetite and aids in digestion in many stomach tea combinations.
  • Brings a good flow of blood to the skin surface thus inducing perspiration.
  • Regulates the menstrual flow.

Excerpts from Nutritional Herbology

The major effects of chamomile are due to its volatile oils. Therefore, it is imperative that the freshest herb be used before the oils evaporate.

The actions of chamomile are strongest on the liver and kidneys where the volatile oils apparently stimulate the organs to purge themselves of toxins. To avoid a loss of volatile oils in the herb, an extract is conveniently described under preparations, which can be added to teas to strengthen them. The extract may also be used alone.

Chamomile is also used to add a golden tint to hair and scent chamomile shampoo formulas. It has also been used as an enema or douche and as a pomade for bathing. The Arabians used it in massage oils.

Contain aromatic compounds that increase the production of digestive fluids, reduce muscle spasms and pains, reduce inflammation and are antiseptic. In addition, these compounds have a sedative effect. Chamomile is one of the best herbal sources of niacin, magnesium, and essential fatty acids.


From our Reading and/or Experience...

  • Chamomile is second only to Black Tea as the best selling tea in the world. Its great flavor, aroma, and soothing effects have made it so popular.
  • We use it often in tincture combinations pertaining to any digestive, nervous or sleeping issues. Of course, it can be used in many other types of remedies, such as in filling capsules. Except, however, in teas. Powders are not normally used in teas.
  • It can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during and after pregnancy, and nursing), children and animals.
  • It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
  • It is critical that chamomile flowers are stored in a dark, dry, and cool place. Refrigeration or freezing is highly recommended, but not necessary. Following these suggestions will delay the loss of its highly valued nutritional and medicinal properties.

I will be buying all my flowers here from now on. I just placed another order now that I know your herbs are superior! Thank you.

Chamomile for Horses
by Beth Gunn on Aug 14, 2013

I've been a practicing herbalist for 40 years and find chamomile - particularly German varieties (Bode Gold) - are wonderful for mares in heat. It's calming, antispasmotic and antinflammatory properties works wonders for many mares. I use two handfuls (1/2 to 3/4 a cup) for a 900-1000 lb mare in her grain once a day during her cycle. Some mares like the scent so much they will happily eat the dried flowers out of your hand.

Question:
by Jessica on Jun 20, 2013

How would I go about making a chamomile tincture for babies/children? And would you add any other herb to the glycerin tincture? Thanks!!!!

    by Bulk Herb Store on Jul 10, 2013

    You can follow the instructions on our How To page for making a glycerite. As far as adding other herbs, it depends on what you are making it for, catnip and fennel would be good for colic, gas and indigestion etc.

I love chamomile
by Ela on Dec 12, 2012

Mmm... these smell so yummy! Even the smell of chamomile is relaxing. I like to drink a cup of this every night before bed to help me go to sleep. It does its job very well, and it tastes so fresh. I enjoy drinking this, and the price is amazing for what you're getting. I love Bulk Herb store in general, and I will be a repeat customer.

Organic Chamomile flowers
by Ailora on Aug 21, 2012

I've been using the organic chamomile flowers I bought here at Bulk Herb to make homemade oil infusions for different ailments. It works and smells lovely.

Today I made myself a cup of chamomile tea though, sweetened with organic raw honey. I had to post a comment. This chamomile used as a tea is wonderful. I immediately felt the calming affects, but I didn't feel drowsy. Instead, it seems some sort of synergistic overall well-being feeling came over me. It tastes great too! What a wonderful product.

Pink Eye
by Julana on Jun 18, 2008

Pink eye is pretty scary to a lot of people. It jumps from one person to the next very quickly. It's actually just a cold in the eye. A GREAT way to get rid of this is: Chamomile tea bags. Soak and place on eye for a few minutes. If you have small children who won't sit still, just soak a tea bag and use a wetted cotton ball every 10-15 min. to wipe the infected eye. Usually clears up within 24 hrs.

From our Mailbox

I just received my order and I am so impressed with everything. My order got to me promptly and the herbs and spices were so fresh. I thought I knew what cinnamon tasted like until I had a cup of your immune booster with a sprinkle of your cinnamon powder! As a mother of two children under 4 years old who are constantly getting sick, I am confident that I am better equipped to help them battle these illness that come their way. I cannot thank you enough for your products, your ministry.
