Well known for its calming effect on the nervous system, (more than 1 million cups of chamomile tea are consumed around the world every day!), Chamomile is also used to relieve digestive upsets, especially in babies and children. It is a key ingredient in over-the-counter medications (Iberogast and STW 5-II) used to relieve acid reflux, stomach pain, cramping, nausea and vomiting. Topical applications of Chamomile are also effective for dry, itchy skin conditions (studies show to be about 60% as effective as 0.25% hydrocortisone cream).
