Chamomile Extract

What is Chamomile Extract?

Chamomile extract is distilled from the flowers of the chamomile plant, a relative of daisies. There are two different types of chamomile: Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) and German chamomile (Chamomilla recutita). While the two varieties look similar, their chemical compositions vary slightly. Researchers find that German chamomile contains more of the active ingredient chamazulene, which gives this chamomile oil or extract a blue hue. 

Benefits of Chamomile Extract 

 Just like chamomile tea, chamomile extract is used for its calming and gentle sedative effects. 

  • Promotes restful sleep.
    Chamomile’s biggest claim to fame is as a natural sleep aid. Home remedies for insomnia and troubled sleep often contain either dried chamomile tea, chamomile essential oil, or chamomile extract. Studies support this claim, showing that those who take chamomile extract experience better sleep quality than those who do not.

  • Calms anxiety and depression.
    Essential oils like lavender and chamomile are known to help relieve tension. Now, research shows that it has a significant impact on chronic stress and generalized anxiety disorder, as well. Along with feeling more relaxed, chamomile oil can help reduce your levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Other studies show that chamomile also helps regulate emotions and reduce feelings of depression.

  • Supports the digestive system.
    Chamomile relaxes the digestive tract as well as the mind. Studies show that chamomile extract can be used to reduce smooth muscle spasms in the gastrointestinal tract to relieve discomfort in conditions like IBS. This effect may also help the nervous system stay in the relaxed “rest and digest” (or parasympathetic) mode. 

What is Chamomile Extract Used For?

Chamomile is most commonly used to alleviate the symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, and stomach upset.
