German chamomile is a small fragrant annual found throughout Europe. While the German chamomile has been relegated to the status of a beverage in North America, chamomile tea is considered a very important herbal medicine in parts of Europe. In German, it is often referred to as alles zutraut or "capable of anything."
A commercial cream containing German chamomile called Kamillosanr has been shown to be effective in promoting wound healing and treating skin ulceration. Traditionally chamomile creams and teas are used externally for wounds and minor skin irritation. German chamomile is used traditionally for many digestive disorders, including indigestion, peptic ulcers and diarrhea. It is also considered to be effective in treating mild insomnia and anxiety.
Many of the constituents found in German chamomile have been shown in animal studies to have anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties.
