English or Roman Chamomile, Anthemis nobilis. Official in ten pharmacopeias. Deleted from the Ninth U. S. P. Admittedly an efficient stomachic and carminative with mild stimulating properties, yet another chamomile, Matricaria, (q. v.) is superior to it and possesses identical properties in a more agreeable form. Many persons object to the taste of anthemis, and it nauseates some.
