    Properties of matricaria chamomile

    By its scientific name Matricaria chamomilla L. the most familiar of the plants for its popular virtues is the matricaria chamomile. A small, common flower with a yellow heart and numerous white petals, matricaria chamomile belongs to the asteraceous herbaceous plant family. Widespread throughout Europe, it grows spontaneously in the countryside along paths or in fields and its scent is easily recognisable. This chamomile is also commonly called "German" chamomile.

    Matricaria chamomile has many applications, whether in herbal tea, decoction or in the form of essential oil. Mixed in certain compositions or pure, it has a very mild taste which improves sleep; twenty-six countries have this plant in their pharmacopoeia. It promotes restful sleep, reduces stress and tension, which is why it has been widely used in herbal teas and infusions. Thus more than a million cups of chamomile are said to be drunk daily in the world.

    The chemical active ingredients that make up matricaria chamomile are indeed powerful: coumarins, fructans, sesquiterpenes (including bisabolol) and azulenes, mucilage, essential oil and polyphenols containing flavonoids.

    Based on its natural substances, wild matricaria chamomile has anti-inflammatory and febrifuge properties, as well as healing properties, hence its external use for dermatological conditions. Its soothing virtues, its softening and skin regeneration properties make chamomile an ingredient with great potential in the field of well-being and body care with products such as lozenges, elixir, shampoos, aromatherapy, ointments etc ...

    Matricaria chamomile is also used in many pharmaceutical preparations and studies attest to its action on infantile colic and especially on depression and anxiety. (1,2,3,4,5,6) In herbal medicine, for example, its flower heads are used for their remarkable antispasmodic effects and in the treatment of digestive disorders.

    Parts of matricaria chamomile used

    Matricaria chamomile has flowers united in flower heads usually harvested in full bloom and then dried. They have a strong characteristic odour and a bitter flavour. Our Life Science & Nutrition range contains chamomile references in the form of dry extracts of flowers with associated health benefits for sleep, stress and digestion. The "Food & Beverage” range offers a "Clear Water Soluble extract” solution with identical properties.

    Within our "Herbal & Teas” range, we reserve whole flowers and their corollas of radiating petals for our pyramid sachets or for bulk. We favour infusion cuts for mixtures with sleep or falling asleep health claims.

    We also offer relaxation formulas like our creation "Oh happy day", made with organic chamomile, mint and verbena. Natural Origins has also thought of children with a coloured preparation referenced "Papa chamomile".
