1. Description

Compositae (Asteraceae)
Latin Name:
Matricaria chamomilla
Chamomilla, Cham, Chamomile, German chamomile Hungarian chamomile, Pineapple weed, Wild Scented mayweed, Wild chamomile

2. Source & History

The German chamomile plant (genus Matricaria) is found in meadows, wheat fields, at roadsides, on sunny hills and on rubble places. The plant which is an annual and has a honey like smell grows extremely rapidly providing two crops in one season. Such abundance of energy is suggestive of a lack of patience and a high degree of restlessness.  These characteristics contrast sharply with the perennial Roman chamomile (genus Anthemis) with an apple like odour.

The whole plant is used to produce the Homeopathic tincture.

3. Mentals & Generals

The Cham patient is sensitive, restless, irritable and ready to fly into a rage. Cannot be pleased and immediately discards things when provided which were previously demanded. Melancholy, broody, seems absorbed within himself, seldom replies when spoken to.

The child is petulant, snappy, extremely restless both by day and night preventing sleep, inconsolable, averse to being touched, throws things around but quiets down upon being carried. One cheek may be hot and red whilst the other is pale and cool.

In general the Cham patient is hypersensitive to pain to an extent which seems out of all proportion to the existing condition. Extremely averse to being touched.

Behavioural problems

8. Constitutional Prescribing

The use of Chel is usually restricted to acute childhood disorders as a consequence of which its use as a Consitiutional rememdy is often neglected.

However whenever a condition is caused or initiated by anger Cham should be considered.  .As always it is the patient picture that is important especially the mental & general manifestations that are the key determinants for its Constitutional use.

In terms of constitutional classification it accords with that of Nebel's Phosphoric as its accent on the "hyper" in terms of excitability/ sensitivity/ restlesness/ irritability/ anger etc 

High potency Constitutional prescription may therefore be used as background together with a concurrent lower potency symptomatic remedy administered according to the Law of Similars in situations where two or more of the main symptoms occur together in the patient. For example
Hypersensitivity or pain and asthma
Anger and colic/ diarrhoea

Tabular Materia Medica

Materia Medica (MM) is Latin for medical material. MMs are a listing of remedies together with their respective symptoms and differ from Repertories which are a listing of symptoms and illnesses.


This Tabular MM is not presented as an exhaustive comprehensive list of all that is known about a remedy. Rather the opposite. It is intended to be used only as an aid memoire to highlight the foundation upon which by further study and experience a fuller knowledge of homoeopathics can be obtained. Consider the Tabular MM as a word picture showing a black and white sketch of the remedys main essential characteristics upon which colour, shade and tone has still be painted.


Remember to rank case symptoms according to their hierarchy giving first priority to
Mentals & Generals when comparing the MM remedy picture of one remedy against another.

Remember also that you don't need to match everything listed under a remedy to benefit from the remedy. All that is required is to find the closest remedy match for those case  symptoms which rank the highest and are the most troublesome. The easiest way to find remedy matches is by Repertorisation. 


For more information on Repertorisation click

Once the main case symptoms have been captured in say 4 - 6  remedies fine tune the final remedy selection manually by refering to the MM, or clicking the Further Information tabs or looking up any other approriate reference manual.
