Chamomile is a daisy like plant which when taken as an infusion is thought to be helpful in inducing sleep and is often marketed as tea bags for this purpose. It has been used for many years to help in calming anxiety and settling upset stomachs and is sometimes used topically to soothe the pain from haemorrhoids. Chamomile contains emollient properties which make it a popular ingredient in many beauty products and it is also used in hair products to enhance the colour of blond hair. Some recent trials have shown it to be useful as a mouthwash to alleviate symptoms such as mouth ulceration associated with being run down, vitamin and mineral deficiencies or chemotherapy treatment.
