Chamomile can be taken as a tea for calming purposes and to soothe the digestive tract, and is mild enough for babies. Chamomile is soothing to the skin, and is often found in lotions and hair products. The genus name Matricaria stems from the Latin word matrix meaning ‘womb’ giving away its beneficial effects for women. Chamomile possesses what Rosemary Gladstar describes as “soft power” to assuage occasional stress and tension. She suggests not only sipping chamomile tea while bathing in it, but also tucking a chamomile sachet under the pillow at night to promote restful sleep.
