Description

ABOUT THE PLANT

Anthemis nobilis is a pleasant-smelling perennial with feather, fern-like leaves and branched, creeping stems topped by small, daisy-like flowers. A smaller herbal plant with larger flowers than that of German Chamomile, Roman Chamomile is native to Western Europe and widely cultivated in England, Belgium, Italy, France, Hungary, and the United States. The whole plant has a distinct scent, reminiscent of sweet apples.

ABOUT THE OIL

Our Roman Chamomile essential oil is steam distilled from flowers organically grown in Hungary. This organic Hungarian variety has the finest aroma of any Roman Chamomile essential oil we've ever experienced. For aromatic uses we highly recommend this oil. We've also added a lovely Roman Chamomile hydrosol from the UK, the distillate water of the essential oil production process. It is excellent for use with young children, or for daily skin care.

Roman Chamomile essential oil is highly sought after for its remarkable calming effects. It can impart its soothing effects in exceptionally small amounts. This makes it one of the best oils for children alongside Mandarin and Lavender. Its action differs from Mandarin in that Mandarin is uplifting as well as relaxing. Lavender is more noticeable to the nose, so some children will go for it while others may not.

Roman Chamomile Oil is used extensively in Europe for the skin, increasing the ability of the skin to regenerate. It is similar to Blue 'German' Chamomile in this respect, though without such a strong anti-inflammatory effect. The two essential oils are quite different chemically.

OF INTEREST

The herb has had a medicinal reputation in the Mediterranean region for over 2000 years, and is still in widespread use throughout the world.

  • According to Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt in Advanced Aromatherapy, "" Even in very small concentrations, whether alone or in combinations with other oils [Roman Chamomile] has a soothing effect. It relieves cramps and spasms and helps relieve shock. In such cases, it is appropriate to massage a few undiluted drops into the solar plexus.”
  • The combination of antibacterial and skin regenerating properties make it great for scrapes and cuts.
  • Rub into the solar plexus to relieve tension or into the abdomen to relieve stomach complaints. We have used it alone, or in combination with Ginger, in a carrier oil as a very effective treatment for bellyaches.
