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. Contains 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.
