Chamomile Flowers - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Chamomile has many properties and helps various conditions ranging from skin and nervous system problems to acting as an antispasmodic and a digestive aid.  

Chamomile is often used to treat colic, scours and other gastro-intestinal disorders. The preparation in this case is prepared with 1/3 cup of Slippery Elm Bark powder mixed into a sufficient quantity of cold tea to make a paste. One dose of this paste daily will completely heal the lining of the gastro intestinal tract when given as an uninterrupted 12 week course.

When using Chamomile to treat nervous system problems, a tea is made by adding 4 dessertspoons of flowers to 1 litre boiling water and this is left to steep until cool.

This can be split in half and used (flowers and all) to dampen down the horses feeds morning and evening.

Alternatively the whole flowers can be fed directly to the horse at a dosage rate of 1/2 cup per feed.
