1. Antispasmodic: A preparation given to relieve intestinal cramping and relax the smooth muscles of the internal organs. Chamomile is used as an antispasmodic to relieve digestive disorders, menstrual cramps, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), headache, and other stress-related disorders.

2. Anthelminthic: Chamomile has been used to expel parasitic worms from the digestive tract.

3. Carminative: Chamomile is given to help expel gas from the intestines.

4. Sedative: Perhaps the most frequent internal use of chamomile is in teas prepared to relieve anxiety and insomnia.

5. Anti-inflammatory: Roman chamomile has been used to soothe the discomfort of gingivitis (inflamed gums), earache, and arthritis. German chamomile is used in Europe to treat oral mucosities in cancer patients following chemotherapy treatment.

6. Antiseptic: Chamomile has mild antibacterial properties, and is sometimes used as a mouthwash or eyewash. It can be applied to compresses to treat bruises or small cuts.

7. Other: Mexican Americans, especially the elderly, have been reported to use chamomile for the treatment of asthma and urinary incontinence. It is one of the two most popular herbs in use among this population.

8. The external uses of chamomile include blending its essential oil with lavender or rose for scenting perfumes, candles, creams, or other aromatherapy products intended to calm or relax the user. Chamomile is considered a middle note in perfumery, which means that its scent lasts somewhat longer than those of top notes but is less long lasting than scents extracted from resinous or gumbearing plants. Chamomile is also a popular ingredient in shampoos, rinses, and similar products to add highlights to blonde or light brown hair.

9. Other external uses of chamomile include topical preparations for the treatment of bruises, scrapes, skin irritations, and joint pain. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of chamomile make it a widely used external treatment for acne, arthritis, burns, ulcerated areas of skin, and even diaper rash. The German E Commission, regarded as an authority on herbal treatments, has recommended chamomile to "combat inflammation, stimulate the regeneration of cell tissue, and promote the healing of refractory wounds and skin ulcers."


Detail information:

Chamomile extract is derived from the chamomile flower, which is popularly used in herbal teas. Many who consume chamomile tea or take the extract do so for its relaxing and anxiety reducing qualities. It may also be effective at reducing inflammation, relieving skin problems such as eczema, and aiding in gastrointestinal relief. The most common side effects to chamomile extract are allergic reactions, particularly among those who have allergies to any other plants of the Asteraceae family to which chamomile belongs.

Most chamomile is consumed in tea form, though the extract may be available in capsule, tincture, or ointment forms. Chamomile ointment is believed to be as effective as hydrocortisone in reducing the itching and inflammation associated with eczema. Many other skin problems, such as acne, are also believed to diminish with the aid of chamomile.

Chamomile extract contains concentrated amounts of compounds found in the chamomile flower, such as flavonoids that have anti-inflammatory qualities. Many of the compounds in the plant are promoted for antioxidant, anti-ulcer, and antimicrobial uses. One of the most popular uses for chamomile is its anxyolitic, or anxiety reducing, effect. Chamomile tea is often consumed for its relaxant qualities, even as a sleep aid.
Another claim of chamomile is it serves as an effective digestive aid. Due to its anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory effects, it may ease stomach ulcers, heartburn, irritable bowel syndrome, nausea, and morning sickness. Chamomile extract may also help prevent diarrhea and hemorrhoids. Many claims regarding its ability to relieve digestive and other ailments, however, are not conclusive and have not been reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Mild to moderate cases of generalized anxiety disorder have been improved by taking chamomile. The Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology conducted one study in which subjects in an experimental group were administered chamomile extract, and subjects in a control group were given placebos. Those in the experimental group displayed significant decreases in anxiety levels.

Allergic reactions to chamomile and its extract are fairly common. Skin rashes, itching, abdominal discomfort, and swelling of the throat have been reported, even though such reactions are counter-indicative of the ailments they are meant to relieve. It is recommended that those with allergies to any other plants of the Asteraceae family, such as echinacea, dandelions and sunflowers, avoid chamomile. There may be some adverse interactions between chamomile extract and some drugs, such as blood thinning medications.
