Dose.—Of infusion, one ounce to a pint of boiling water, from one to two ounces, or more if indicated.

Therapeutic Action.—Wild Chamomile possesses sudorific, tonic, emetic, and rubefacient properties. Although but little used as a diaphoretic, yet it affords us an admirable one in certain cases. In low grades of fever, where the vital powers are depressed, or where there is congestion of internal organs, with a cold, shrunken, or shriveled condition of the surface, a weak and warm infusion of this article exerts a decided influence in determining the circulation to the surface, and promoting diaphoresis.


The American Eclectic Materia Medica and Therapeutics, 1898, was written by John M. Scudder, M.D.
