What is German chamomile?
German chamomile is a flowering perennial plant that has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years and is one of the most commonly known and used herbs. It is found throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia and often grows near roads, landfills and fields. It may be confused with its cousin, Roman chamomile, which is less common and does not contain the same effective compounds as German chamomile1.
How Does German Chamomile Work?
German chamomile is rich in a nitrogenous compound called azulene or chamazulene. This compound gives chamomile oil its characteristic blue color, and it has very powerful anti-inflammatory properties. The herb also contains compounds that have antiseptic and antibiotic properties, and the flowers and oil from the plant have a fresh, pleasant fragrance often employed in aromatherapy for lifting feelings of sadness and inducing a pleasant mood1.
Benefits of German Chamomile
German chamomile was traditionally used to help relieve a variety of symptoms stemming from occasional simple nervousness, including sleep disorders, anxiety and gastrointestinal problems. This herb helps to gently soothe and lessen frustration caused by common everyday overwork and fatigue.
Chamomile is known for its calming effect and is therefore an effective remedy for skin infections like eczema. Its calming effect is also useful in helping fretful or overexcited children to fall asleep. The herb may facilitate good digestion by stimulating the production of digestive juices, and its anti-inflammatory properties can calm irritated airways to promote easier breathing.
