Roman Chamomile is a small perennial herb with daisy-like flowers. The essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of the flowering tops, and is considered one of the gentlest essential oils – perfectly safe for children.
Studies have shown that Roman Chamomile essential oil has sedative and anti-inflammatory properties. Great for overworked muscles, arthritis, inflamed tendons and swollen joints, Roman Chamomile essential oil is also soothing and beneficial for sensitive, red or dry skin. Blend it with Lavender essential oil to alleviate migraines, headaches and insomnia. It is also helpful with stress, anxiety, and tension associated with impatience and frustration.
