ROMAN CHAMOMILE OVERVIEW INFORMATION
Roman chamomile is a plant whose flower heads are used in medicines.
Roman chamomile is used for various digestive disorders including indigestion, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, and intestinal gas (flatulence) due to mental stress. Women use it to relieve morning sickness and painful menstrual periods. It is also used to alleviate pain and swelling of the lining of the nose and mouth, sinus pain (sinusitis), and joint (rheumatic) pain.
Roman chamomile is applied directly to the skin to reduce pain and swelling (inflammation) and is used as a germ-killer in ointments, creams, and gels used to treat cracked nipples, sore gums, and irritation of the skin. It is also used topically for wounds, burns, eczema, frostbite, diaper rash, bedsores (decubitus ulcers), and hemorrhoids.
Roman chamomile is sometimes mixed with other herbs and taken by mouth for liver and gallbladder disease, gallstones, fatty liver, chronic heartburn, loss of appetite, digestive disturbances, a heart condition called Roemheld's syndrome, indigestion in infants, and certain types of constipation. It is used as a "blood purifier" and general female tonic, and to relieve/prevent menstrual cramps and irregular periods.
Roman chamomile can be added to a steam bath and inhaled to relieve sinus inflammation, hay fever, sore throat, and ear inflammation, as well as general pain.
In foods and beverages, the essential oil and extract are used as flavor components.
In manufacturing, the volatile oil of Roman chamomile is used as a fragrance in soaps, cosmetics, and perfumes and a flavoring in cigarette tobacco. The extract is also used in cosmetics and soaps. Teas have been used as a hair tint and conditioner, and as treatment for parasitic worm infections.
How does it work?
Roman chamomile contains chemicals that can help decrease gas (flatulence), relax muscles, and cause sedation. Depending on the dose, it can either relieve or cause nausea.
