Chamomilla side effects:  

In large unregulated doses, it may cause drowsiness and vomiting. It also has the potential to trigger allergic reactions in people who are allergic to related plants in the daisy family, although such reactions are very rare. Avoid it if you are allergic to these plants: chamomile, ragweed, daisies, marigolds, or chrysanthemums. Skin creams with chamomile can cause allergic eczema and irritate the eyes in some patients. The effects of long-term chamomile use aren’t known but has been well received by homeopaths.
