It has been frequently used as a mild sedative to calm nerves and reduce anxiety, to treat hysteria, nightmares, insomnia and other sleep problems. Chamomile can also help with reducing the symptoms of various gastrointestinal disturbances including flatulence, indigestion, diarrhea, anorexia, motion sickness, nausea, and vomiting. It may also be useful in helping ease arthritis, back pain, and stomach cramps.
LEMON VERBENA (Alousia triphylla) aerials
Lemon verbena has a light lemon flavour and has traditionally been used as a sedative, to stop muscle spasms, to reduce fever, to alleviate indigestion and to increase appetite. It may assist with reducing oxidative damage and reducing muscle damage after exhaustive exercise, improving sleep quality, weight loss, reducing inflammation, supporting the immune system and relieving congestion.
PASSIONFLOWER (Passiflora incarnata) flower
This beautiful flower has been used traditionally as a sedative for reducing insomnia, stress and restlessness. More recently Passionflower has been shown to aid sleep by increasing total sleep time, reducing wakefulness, and it may also help alleviate anxiety.
