Roman Chamomile diluted in Jojoba oil
Flowers, Steam Distilled, United Kingdom
Roman Chamomile is anti-inflammatory and highly useful for irritated skin conditions such as rashes, burns and eczema. It is an anti-depressant and calming to the central nervous system. It also relieves symptoms of shock as well as insomnia. It can be used as a digestive stimulant, particularly effective for constipation. If mixed with vegetable oil, it can bring relief to sore gums and teething babies.
Roman Chamomile essential oil is comprised of mostly esters, around 80%; esters are known and widely used for their soothing, calming effects2,3 and they determine the character of our exceptionally fine Roman Chamomile from the US. Please note that the essential oil of Roman Chamomile is strongly aromatic, so it should be used sparingly.
Roman Chamomile is sought after by the makers of cosmetics and body care products as well as natural perfumers. It is also found in high-end perfumes and blends well with the same class of oils as German Blue Chamomile. Our very nice Roman Chamomile essential oil is one we highly recommend!
