Chamomile tea was commonly used as a remedy for indigestion, and the dried flowers of Chamaemelum nobile were historically used to rid patients of parasitic intestinal worms in Germany. Dried flower heads were also used to flavor the tobacco used in cigarettes. Compresses of the flowers have been used to treat gout, inflammation, and skin disorders.

In Britain, chamomile tea is used in treating menstrual cramps, as a carminative (reducing flatulence), and for wound healing. Modern studies indicate that Chamaemelum nobile is not recommended for use during pregnancy.
