The flowers of Anthemis nobilis.—Europe.
Related entry: Anthemis under emetics
Preparation.—Tincture of Anthemis.
Dose.—From five to twenty drops.
Therapeutic Action.—Chamomile flowers are tonic, stomachic, corroborant, aromatic, diaphoretic, emetic, antispasmodic and carminative.
They possess valuable remedial virtues. As an aromatic tonic, stomachic and corroborant, we know of no single agent that is superior. They are valuable in enfeebled states of the digestive organs, occurring either as a primary disease, or dependent upon some acute affection. In many cases of indigestion, unattended with gastric inflammation, they are found to be very acceptable and curative.
