Chamomile Fluid Extract
Chamomile is a well-known herb among the general population. It has been used for centuries by many cultures. Its mild, pleasant taste makes it a favorite tea for soothing the digestion and nerves. Finlandia’s Chamomile product is a fluid extract and is 3 - 5 times more potent than the usual tincture.
Chamomile is traditionally used in treating insomnia, restlessness, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), travel sickness, nervous diarrhea, flatulence, inflamed nasal mucous membranes, allergic rhinitis, gastrointestinal (GI) spasms, inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, and gastrointestinal ulcers linked to either non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or alcohol use. This herb also acts as an antispasmodic for menstrual cramps. Children also benefit well from the use of this herb as it calms travel sickness, calms over-excitement, expels pin worms, heals upset tummy, calms anxiety, and reduces fevers. Chamomile is also used topically in the form of essential oil to calm irritated and inflamed skin conditions and is used in the treatment of eczema and psoriasis.
Chamomile is native to many countries throughout Europe, and is cultivated in such countries as Germany, Egypt, France, Spain, Italy, Morocco, and parts of Eastern Europe. The various different Chamomile plants are very distinct and require their own set of conditions to grow. For example, Roman chamomile is a perennial plant (meaning it will live more than two years). It grows close to the ground and has smallish blossoming flowers. It tends to be bitter when used in teas. German chamomile, on the other hand, is a sweeter variety. It is an annual plant and can grow large blossoms up to three feet in height.

Finlandia Single Liquid Fluid Extracts
The majority of our tinctures are actually herbal fluid extracts which are 3 – 5 times stronger than tinctures. Fluid extracts consist of 1 part plant to 1 part extracting liquid (typically a mixture of water and alcohol). Tinctures are 1 part plant diluted with 3 – 5 (or more) parts extracting liquid which makes them 3 to 5 times weaker than fluid extracts.
What this means for you is that your dosages will be in drops instead of teaspoons (quite appreciated especially if the herb does not taste very good!). Your bottle will last 3-5 times longer but it is not 3-5 times the price of the weaker tinctures.
