Chamomile flowers look like tiny daisies that grow on long, thin, light green stems. The plant can reach up to three feet high. Chamomile is a very popular herb, well-known for its sedative effect. It has been used for a variety of other medicinal purposes, however: the common cold, anxiety, digestive issues, and skin issues are some of the problems chamomile has been used to address.

Warning: Interactions: Chamomile should not be taken without consulting your physician if you take the following: blood-thinning medications, sedatives, blood pressure medications, diabetes medications, hormonal therapies, and any drugs that are broken down by the liver.
Warnings: Pregnant women should not take chamomile. Women with hormone-sensitive cancers should ask their doctors before using chamomile. Due to chamomile’s sedative quality, it is best not to take it before driving. Children under 5 should not take more than half a cup of chamomile tea daily. Chamomile may worsen asthma, so people with asthma should not take chamomile. People with ragweed allergies may also be allergic to chamomile. Stop taking chamomile at least two weeks prior to surgery, due to risk of bleeding.
