Chamomile has been used throughout the ages as a wonder herb in early childhood and is safe for even newborns. It works wonders to settle upset tummies, relieve wind, calm the nerves of both babies and parents and promote a restful sleep.
There are so many uses for this wonderful herb for all the family so we wanted to keep a post here where we could list the various remedies that we have found so useful for our own children.
As Aviva Romm writes in our family bible "Naturally Healthy Babies and Children": "Chamomile is the quintessential remedy for babies as it attends to many of the conditions and symptoms that babies are apt to display. These include fussiness, irritability with teething, colic or flatulence, whining, stubbornness and earaches.
HOW IT'S USED
As an antispasmodic, chamomile is helpful for those with muscle aches. As a carminative and digestive bitter, it promotes healthy digestion, bile flow, and elimination while reducing gas and colic as well as intestinal spasms from other causes. Chamomile is excellent for reducing bowel irritations and inflammation including irritable bowel disease, ulcers, gastritis, and some of the symptoms of Chrohn's. Because it is also antimicrobial, it is useful as a topical remedy for treating wounds. Finally chamomile can be used as an infusion, tincture, or steam inhalation for excessive nasal catarrh. Its anti-inflammatory nature further enhances its ability to reduce allergic responses.
