A favorite herb for children, chamomile has been use to treat children’s colic, nervous stress, infections, and stomach disorders.

Chamomile tea is calming and supports sleep. It is proven to reduce anxiety, nightmares, and insomnia. One active ingredient called apigenin reduces locomotor activity, which disrupts sleep in restless sleepers.

Also, the first controlled study of the use of chamomile extract showed that it has a moderate effect in reducing anxiety in people with general anxiety disorder. Besides its excellent anti-anxiety properties, chamomile is an antispasmoic and can help alleviate menstrual cramps.

Chamomile has sweet flavor with slightly bitter aftertones. The longer the herb is left to steep, the more bitter it becomes.
