Chamomile flower may repair damage to the brain, containing repairing phytoceuticals for neural receptors and the amino acid Tryptophan which is sedative-like for irritated nerves and agitated or over-stimulated thinking, effecting calmness and soothing. In the bath, it may work to relax and take away cramps as a muscle relaxant, and anti-histamine as an anti-allergenic, and may reduces stress, including symptoms of ulcers and solar plexus pain. It may be effective as an alkalizing agent and to reduce swelling, inflammation, rashes, excema, psoriasis, and hives. Topical applications to the skin may kill bacteria, reduce localized swelling, sooth sunburn and scrapes, and relieve sore and inflamed eyes. As a poultice chamomile may neutralize bronchial infections, and eliminate skin abscesses and reduce hemorrhoids. When taken as a tea before bed it may give you a good night’s sleep. A strong tea will also induce a fever to promote sweats by pushing both bacteria and toxins out through the skin, especially when taken while sitting in a chamomile tea bath.
