Perhaps the most well-known use for the Chamomile herb is to promote relaxation in the cases of insomnia and anxiety. Many modern day natural sleep-aids contain the herb Chamomile. It can be used in both teas and baths.

Chamomile is also very effective for symptoms such as menopausal depression, loss of appetite, dyspepsia, diarrhea, colic, aches from flu, migraine, neuralgia, teething, vertigo, motion-sickness, conjunctivitis, skin-inflammation, urticaria, etc.

Chamomile relaxes and tones the nervous system, and calms anxiety and tension that produce gas, colic or ulcer. It soothes the walls of the intestines and aids in the proper functioning of the digestive system. It's effective as an anti-inflammatory internally for digestion and respiration, as well as externally for the skin.
As an anti-spasmotic herb, it works on the peripheral nerves and muscles, which indirectly relaxes the whole body. It's helpful for leg and stomach cramps, and can be used as a tea for gastritis.

Chamomile is a mild anti-microbial, which helps the body destroy or resist pathogenic micro-organisms. Azulene, a component of Chamomile, is bacteriocidal to staphylococcus and streptoccus infections. The oil from .10g of flowers is enough to destroy in 2 hours, three times the amount of staphylococcal toxins.

As an anti-catarrhal, Chamomile helps the body remove excess mucus build-up in the sinus area, therefore it's helpful for the alleviation of symptoms due to colds and allergies such as hay fever. Mucus is an essential body product, but when too much is produced, it's usually in response to an infection. Chamomile herb helps the body remove the problematic organism, also acts as a way of removing excess carbohydrates from the body.

I wonder if you could just put a few drops of liquid Chamomile extract/tincture in some plain, sodium free seltzer water. If it didn't taste good, maybe a touch of black cherry concentrate (RW Knudsens) for flavor?

You could boil a couple camomile teabags and make a concentrated tea and add some sugar or stevia and soda water.

There is nothing more powerful than that homeoapthic chamomile. It can stop the terrrors in children, sooth irritabiltiy and combativeness. one does of 30c in the correctly selected case.

One sign in the need of chamomile in a child is that one cheek will be flushed red and the other is normal. They will cling and what to be held but may strike those who hold them.
