What is Tincture of Matricaria?
Tincture of Matricaria is a gentle solution made from the oils found within the flower heads of the German chamomile plant (Marticaria recutita). Chamomile has been used as a herbal remedy for thousands of years.
Part of the sunflower family, chamomile grows all over the world and has a pretty daisy-like appearance with a yellow center surrounded by oval shaped white petals.
The word Chamomile is derived from the Greek word ‘chamai’ meaning ‘on the ground’ and ‘melon’, meaning ‘apple’, because Chamomile has an apple-like smell.
Chamomile’s popularity grew throughout the Middle Ages when people turned to it as a remedy for numerous medical complaints including children’s ailments.
