Matricaria Chamomilla. Compositae.

Tincture prepared from the fresh plant when in flower; the flowers contain active principles which combine the properties of bitters and ethereal oils. The plant is a native of Europe, but is occasionally cultivated in our gardens; the leaves and flowers are small, thus differing from the Anthemis nobilis, or Roman chamomile; it must not be confounded with the Anthemis cotula, or wild chamomile, growing abundantly by the wayside and in waste places in this country. A decoction of the plant in the shape of tea is much used and abused, as a domestic medicine, particularly in Germany. Hahnemann classed Chamomilla with the polychrests. Two hundred and seventy-two symptoms observed by himself, and three by other authors, were published in his Fragmenta, and in vol. iii of his Materia Medica Pura, second edition, these had increased to four hundred and sixty-one, besides containing thirty additional symptoms observed by Stapf. For later provings of the drug, see Allen's Encyclopaedia, vol. 3, p. 89. Clinical observations are found scattered through our entire literature, there probably not being a physician in our ranks who has not tested the virtue of Chamomilla in either high or low preparations. Among the contributors to Chamomilla, we refer to:

Hoffmann, H. H., Post Partum Hemorrhage, Trans. Hom. Soc. of Pa., 2, p. 433; Van Cutsem, Mental Symptoms the result of Poisoning, Rev. Hom., p. 100, Raue's Record, 1875, marked t; Norton, Geo.

It corresponds to the secondary symptoms of Opium, not at all to the primary, and acts better in the lower dilutions. C. Hg.)
