Chamomile has antianxiety, antihistamine, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antispasmodic properties. It also may lower blood sugar and protect against cancer. As an antibacterial herb, chamomile may inhibit the growth of underarm bacteria, which eliminates underarm perspiration odor.

Allergies. If chamomile is steamed or placed in hot water, a substance called chamazulene, which has markedly antiallergenic properties, is formed. Studies have found that chamazulene prevents the formation of inflammatory leukotrienes, thereby inhibiting the generation of toxic free radicals needed to trigger the allergic response. A compound in the herb’s essential oil reinforces the effect of chamazulene by blocking the release of histamine. Chamazulene also stops stomach irritation caused by the release of free radicals that activate histamine. This explains chamomile’s traditional use in soothing upset stomach.

Anxiety, attention deficit disorder (ADD), insomnia, and stress. Chamomile has traditionally been used as a calmative for persons under stress. Herbalists especially recommend it for sleeplessness in children. Laboratory tests on animals show that inhaling the vapors of essential oil of chamomile reduces the body’s production of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), a stress hormone. Inhaling the essential oil lowers stress and makes other stress-reduction drugs, such as diazepam (Valium), more effective.

Cuts, scrapes, and abrasions. Chamomile creams reduce the “weeping” of fluid from cuts and scrapes and have been used on skin ulcers. A German study of people who had undergone dermabrasion for the removal of tattoos found that chamomile creams reduced both the amount of fluid lost and the size of the wounds. In another study, cancer patients receiving chemotherapy were given a mouthwash of chamomile three times a day for two weeks and their mouth sores did not heal better compared to a control group. However, in a case study on a woman who was receiving methotrexate for rheumatoid arthritis, a chamomile mouthwash was shown to help with mouth sores. The patient was completely healed after four weeks. According to the German Commission E, chamomile is approved for treatment of inflammation of the skin and mucous membranes and diseases of the skin and gums. It may also act as a deodorant.

Endometrial cancer. Chamomile contains apigenin, a chemical that prevents the production of proteins that allow cancer cells from anchoring to new sites in cell lines.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and morning sickness. Naturopathic physicians in the United States frequently recommend chamomile tea as part of a treatment program for IBS because of its antispasmodic properties, which also makes it useful in treating morning sickness. Chamomile is more effective when used with ginger. (See GINGER.)

Peptic ulcers. For over twenty years, medical researchers have recognized the value of chamomile in preventing and treating peptic ulcers. Chamomile’s anti-inflammatory and antihistamine actions soothe inflammation throughout the digestive tract. When the discomfort of peptic ulcers is compounded by diarrhea, chamomile hastens recovery, especially if a high-fiber diet is maintained.

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Traditional herbal medicine in England used chamomile as one of the five “opening” herbs for the treatment of irregular menstruation. Chamomile contains spiroether, a very strong antispasmodic agent that relaxes aching and tense muscles, and alleviates premenstrual pain.


Recommended Uses

People who are allergic to ragweed or members of the Compositae family (chrysanthemums) should avoid contact with chamomile because it could produce dermatitis or anaphylaxis.

Chamomile is used in teas and tinctures internally, and in creams and compresses externally. (See COMPRESSES in Part Three.) More than those of most other herbs, the effects of chamomile are cumulative. Use chamomile for at least three to four weeks before deciding whether or not it is effective.

Choose products made from German chamomile, Chamomilla recutita, or Matricaria recutita, rather than Roman chamomile, Anthemis cotula. In a few rare instances, Roman chamomile produces allergic skin reactions, but the allergenic compound in Roman chamomile is not found in German chamomile. It is also important to buy a chamomile product that consists only of flowers, without leaves and stems mixed in. Leaves and stems have much lower content of therapeutic essential oils than flowers.

Chamomile contains the natural blood-thinners known as coumarins. Since these chemicals in the herb are similar to the prescription drug warfarin (Coumadin), avoid chamomile teas when taking warfarin. However, some argue that the risk may not be significant and chamomile may be taken with warfarin. Check with your doctor if you are on blood-thinners before using chamomile. It may also cause drowsiness.
