Research Facts
Boericke & Tafel is the longest running homeopathic pharmaceutical company in the United States, still running as of 2018, while it started (under a different name and ownership) in 1835. Boericke and Tafel also published books on homeopathy, and their families intermarried. The popularity of homeopathy dwindled after about 1915 in the United States, but rose again in the 1980s and 90s.
Chamomile has a long history of medicinal use. It's natural soothing and anti-inflammatory properties make it great at helping to soothe all kinds of coughs. It's also helpful to add chamomile to your syrup for it's natural calming capabilities, to help you sleep better while getting over your cough.
