Chamomile (Matricaria recutita L.) is a herb both growing spontaneously and cultivated in temperate areas. Its extract contains several different ﬂavonoids (i.e. apigenin), coumarins and volatile oils. Oil preparations possess antibacterial and antifungal effects while extracts and infusions of the herb are used to facilitate sleeping, as antispasmodic and as anti-inﬂammatory. It is also traditionally used for eyes health as a decongestant.
