Long history of use in folk medicine and homeopathy.

There are two kinds of Chamomile, German (above) and Roman.  Some herbalists differentiate between their actions and some use them interchangeably.  German Chamomile tastes better, but has less antispasmodic effect.

“Bathing in a decoction takes away weariness, eases pains, to what part of the body soever they be applied.  It comforts the sinews that are overstrained, mollifies all swellings.  It moderately comforts all parts that have need of warmth, digests and dissolves whatsoever has need thereof, by a wonderful speedy property.” Nicholas Culpeper
