Excerpts from The ABC Herbal

Another excellent activator for children is chamomile. Chamomile helps to settle the stomach and calm the nerves. Chamomile is probably one of the very best nervine herbs for children. It aids digestion, expels gas from the bowel, soothes the nerves and reduces inflammation.


Excerpts from The How to Herb Book

  • A good tonic. It was Mother Rabbit’s remedy for Peter Rabbit when he got in Farmer McGregor’s garden. She probably used it to soothe poor Peter’s stomach and shattered nerves.
  • 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.

Calms Colic
by Maria F. on Apr 28, 2011

Hello to all at the Bulk Herb Store . . .

Thank you for sending along my order of chamomile. It was the very first herb I was formally introduced to back in the 60's. I used it as part of my healing from severe acne. Along with other considerations, it really helped. Also, in 1970 I was blessed with a beautiful son who unfortunately was experiencing colic. A screaming baby is very unsettling!! However, a kind neighbor brought me a brown bag of tiny little flowers, and showed me how to brew it for him. He gobbled it up and he and I both slept for the first time in weeks. I awoke and immediately ran to check him concerned with his first ever 7 hours of sleep and found him still blissfully sleeping. I carried that brown bag of precious camomile flowers with me everywhere I went telling the story of the little magic flowers to anyone who would listen. No more colic!

Thank you again,
Maria Flaherty

From our Mailbox

First, I just want to say, thank you. I have made a few orders from BHS, and have been just thrilled with the herbs and books. My husband thinks it's great too. I have only been doing the "herbal thing" for a few months, and was actually excited for one of the kids to get sick, so I could try a few things out on them. Well, recently, all 4 of our children caught the flu, and I treated them using herbs, probiotics, baths and poultices. They recovered SO quickly! The next week, hubby got a cold and I asked him if I could mix something up for him. He said that after seeing how the kids responded to their herbal treatments, that he would take anything I had to give him! Well, I made what we have since dubbed 'the powerhouse' ( Echinacea, goldenseal, Yarrow and Cayenne), and that cleared him up right quick! Thank you so much for helping me to be confident and take responsibility for my family's healthcare.

Sincerely,
~Kjersten H.
