Chamomile is the common name for a group of daisy-like plants of the Asteraceae family. Matricaria recutita and Anthemis nobilis are two species widely used to produce herbal infusions for traditional treatment. There isn’t enough scientific data to suggest that eating chamomile in meals or beverages has any health benefits.

The term “chamomile” comes from the Greek words (khamai) “on the ground” and (mlon) “apple,” which were borrowed via French and Latin. The spelling “chamomile” was first used in the 13th century, and it is derived from the Latin chamomilla and the Greek chamaimelon. Camomile is a British derivative of the French word camomille.

Chamomile tea is a hot herbal infusion prepared from dried flowers. German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) and Roman chamomile are the two kinds of chamomile utilized (Chamaemelum nobile).

Chamomile has long been utilized in the production of beer and ale. Unlike tea, which only uses the blossoms, the entire plant has been utilized to produce brews and ales, providing a bitter taste component that craft breweries and homebrewers like.


Polyphenol chemicals such as apigenin, quercetin, patuletin, and luteolin are the primary components of chamomile flowers. The anti-anxiety effects of chamomile are being studied in the lab. There is no high-quality clinical evidence that it is effective in the treatment of insomnia or any other illness.

Chamomile usage has the potential to interact negatively with a variety of herbal remedies and prescription medications and exacerbate pollen allergies. Due to cross-reactivity, those sensitive to ragweed (also in the daisy family) may also be allergic to chamomile.

Apigenin, a phytochemical found in chamomile, can interact with anticoagulants and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. In contrast, other phytochemicals have the potential to interact negatively with sleep-inducing herbal remedies and vitamins.

Aspirin or non-salicylate NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications) should not be used with chamomile since it may create a herb-drug interaction.
