Santi-shopMatricaria chamomilla - organic
Finely cut dried flowers of Matricaria Chamomile, a by infusion amateurs well-known plant but whose medicinal properties are often ignored. Chamomile flowers are nevertheless very effective against digestive disorders, nervous tension and allergies and their very smooth action makes them particularly suitable for children. At moderate doses they are also known to have some effectiveness against insomnia.
Due to their concentration in mucilages (which soothe irritations of mucouses) and their anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties, matricaria chamomile flowers as an infusion are effective against digestive disorders (abdominal pain, indigestion, digestive tract inflammation, gastritis, spasms , etc.), menstrual pain, muscle aches, colds, allergic rhinitis or asthma.
Externally chamomile flowers are used to disinfect and heal wounds and treat skin irritations, also to decongest irritated eyes and they help lighten hair, maintain their blondeness or give them a golden hue
Matricaria chamomilla is commonly known as chamomile (also spelled camomile), Italian camomilla, German chamomile, Hungarian chamomile (kamilla), wild chamomile or scented mayweed.
