Calm & Stress Relief
About Roman Chamomile
Roman Chamomile is one of the oils that has been used for millenia. The Egyptians mention it as well as all the later cultures including the Romans. Interestingly the name “Roman” has nothing to do with the ancient Roman’s use of the oil, only that the plant was named such since it was found in that locality.
Because of its calming and relaxing properties it can help with anxiety, depression, insomnia and the related concerns. It is mild enough to use with children (dilute with a carrier) to calm in distressed situations as well as for a high fever, earaches, teething, and to help with tummy aches.
Because of the varied constituents, Roman Chamomile has a broad range of applications as reported by many aromatherapists. Those mentioned include allergies, burns, diarrhea, nausea, psoriasis, and sprains.
Roman Chamomile is rated GRAS by the FDA and can be used internally.
Research: Schnaubelt, in his classic book Medical Aromatherapy, describes the power of Roman Chamomile in this way: “While monterpenoid esters are common in many essential oils, there is practically no other oil that reflects the nature of esters, as exclusively as Roman Chamomile. Despite its etherial fragrance, Roman Chamomile has highly physical effects. It is a powerful antispasmodic and muscle relaxant that can be used as an emergency remedy during asthma attacks (rubbed on solar plexus, wrists, and temples) until more specific help becomes available.”
