Natural Herb - Chamomile produces an oil that when isolated turns a very unique bluish color and this has very distinct anti-inflammatory properties to it so it has been known to work very well on skin infections, eczema, and inflamed skin. This would be Natural Herb - Chamomile in its topical form rather than the flowers or the tea from the flowers. Again, remember that Natural Herb - Chamomile was around for a long time before many over the counter and prescription medications were so readily available. For years all many people had to rely on was herbal remedies that were likely passed down from generations and possibly continued to be passed down even after the newer medications did come to the forefront.
When Natural Herb - Chamomile tops are stewed and then drained the liquid is a deep yellow color and can be lightly sweetened if preferred.

It was used before the days of over the counter gas relief drops and although there is no scientific validity to it, it always seemed to make the baby stop wailing and fall fast asleep.
It was also given to women for menstrual cramps in the days before Midol and Pamprin.
