Chamomile Flowers

What are Chamomile Flowers?

Botanical Name: Matricaria recutita

Chamomile Flowers are an herb that comes from the daisy-like flowers of the Asteraceae plant family. 

Chamomile Flowers throughout history have been administered as herbal medicine and herbal tea for inducing a calm state of mind.  Hippocrates, known as the Father of Medicine, advocated the calming, soothing benefits of Chamomile Flowers as a Tea several hundred years BC. 

Chamomile is high in antioxidants like terpenoids and flavonoids and is consumed all over the world as a tea for calming and soothing the digestive tract.  Rosemary Gladstar, American Herbalist, wrote, “Chamomile possesses soft power to assuage occasional stress and tension.”  Chamomile is a powerful nervine. (A nervine herb acts on the nervous and limbic systems to reduce overactive stress responses and return the body to resting, relaxing, digesting, sleeping phase. Nervines work gently to re-establish normal nerve function and balance.) 

Chamomile Tea has been enjoyed by millions all over the world as a relaxing tea to help bring relief from anxiety, upset stomach, irritability, and insomnia.  In the “Complete Book of Ayurvedic Home Remedies,” it is noted that Chamomile is renowned as a mild tranquilizer.  Experts believe that the sedative effects of chamomile flowers in tea could be due to the flavonoid, apigenin that binds to benzodiazepine receptors in the brain and helps induce sleep.
