Also called Hungarian chamomile or single chamomile, the bitter, spicy, and aromatic flower heads of the chamomile plant have been used to help support nervousness and irritability, digestive disorders, teething and irritable children, menstrual cramps, and back pains. They possess calmative, nervine, antispasmodic, anodyne, diaphoretic, emmenagogue, and carminative properties due to the presence of and essential oil (comprised of blue-colored azulene) and coumarin, flavonic heterosides, and tannic acid.
Chamomile is one of the most widely used herb teas, highly regarded for its digestive and calming properties. Chamomile, sometimes known as the "Band-Aid for the stomach," should be one of the first herbs considered for all digestive complaints. It is a good supportive for a number of health problems ranging from the common cough and cold to digestive disorders, diarrhea, menstrual cramps, nervousness and insomnia.
An excellent supportive for menstrual cramps is an infusion of chamomile flowers with a few slices of raw ginger. This same combination is good for all the above-mentioned health concerns. A strong infusion using one ounce to a pint of water is one of the most promising approaches to help support pains, including the pain of a slipped disc in the back, sciatica, and joint pain.
Chamomile tea, with its high assimilable calcium content, seems to be effective for irritable children and teething, colicky infants.
There are different varieties of chamomile, all with similar properties, but the stronger bitter German chamomile has the greater anti-inflammatory properties. Chamomile also makes a good rinse for blond hair.

Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 tea bag for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
Iced tea brewing method (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water].
