History of Traditional Use of Chamomile Flowers
Everybody remembers the childhood story of Peter Rabbit. After his harrowing experience in the farmer’s garden, Peter is comforted by his mother making him a warm cup of Chamomile tea. The significance of the genus name Matricaria, which is derived from the latin Matrix, meaning Mother or Womb indicates its use since antiquity for problems of the female reproductive system, as well as the calming and soothing affect only a mother can have. Herbalists have used this plant to support digestion, promote the easing of colic and other complaints resulting from nervous excitability or tension and other situations where a gentle relaxant is called for.

Mechanism of Theraputic Action
Chamomile is loaded with volatile oils among them; proazulenes, bisabolol, farnesine, pinene, anthemal, spiroether, and angelic acid. It also contains sesquiterpine lactones, flavonoids (apigenin, quercitin, patuletin, and luteolin), cyanogenic glycosides, bitter glycosides, coumarins, valerianic acids, tannins and the list goes on. Needless to say it is chemically complex. Azulene and Bisabolol are anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic reducing histamine induced reactions. There are also numerous studies indicating various pharmacological activities from all of the other chemicals listed. This seems to be another case of the sum being greater than the total of all the parts. More research is needed to fully understand the exact mechanisms of Chamomiles therapeutic activities.
