Among the Nine Sacred Herbs of the "Lacnunga", an ancient Anglo-saxon manuscript, Chamomile is the "Maythen". Moreover, Chamomile has inspired a proverb about energy in adversity, "like a chamomile bed, the more it is trodden the more it will spread. Chamomile is also valued for it's sweet apple-scented leaves. In a popular gardening book of 1638, William Lawson wrote of the "large walks, broad and long, like the Temple groves in Thessaly, raised with gravel and sand, having seats and banks of Chamomile-all this delights the mind and brings health to the body" . The relaxing aroma was also inhaled as snuff or smoked to relieve asthma and cure insomnia. At beauty salons, Chamomile tea is often served to relax facial muscles in Europe. A cream made in Germany from German Chamomile was tested in 1987 for it's ability to heal wounds and produced very positive results. In 1993, a trial using German chamomile and 4 other herbs showed them to be most effective at easing infantile colic.

The herb is valuable for pain, indigestion, acidity, gastritis, wind, bloating & colic. It is also used for hiatus hernia, peptic ulcer, Crohn's disease and irritable bowel syndrome.

Externally, it can be applied to sore, itchy skin, sore nipples & eczema. It also relieves eyestrain. A poultice can be applied to sore breasts.
