About the Plant:

The word Chamomile itself commonly refers to German Chamomile, not Roman Chamomile. Although they are similar plants, they have very different therapeutic effects and different chemical compositions.

The scent of Roman Chamomile is more delicate and pleasant than that of German Chamomile. Another distinguishing feature is that the color of German Chamomile Essential Oil has a bluish tint, while Roman Chamomile does not.

Both plants are short, with daisy-like blossoms on single stems, although Roman Chamomile only grows a few inches from the ground, while German Chamomile can reach up to 2 feet in height.

You can also distinguish Roman Chamomile from German Chamomile by snipping the cone of the blossom. If it is hollow, it is Roman Chamomile. If the cone is solid, it is German Chamomile.

Where it Grows:

Roman Chamomile

Traditional Uses and Lore:

Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans loved Chamomile. The Egyptians dedicated the daisy-like flowering plant to their sun god, Ra. The Greeks gave Chamomile its name by combining two Greek words: “chamos” and “melos,” meaning “ground” and “apple” respectively.

In England, it was popular to grow Chamomile as an aromatic and cushiony alternative to grass that can be mowed completely flat. To this day, Buckingham Palace continues to maintain its all-Chamomile lawn, which dates back to the reign of King George V. Chamomile has also been grown on stone garden benches since the Middle Ages, creating a softly padded and fragrant seat.

Safety Precautions:

  • Roman Chamomile Essential Oil is one of the mildest oils available in aromatherapy.
  • It is safe to use during pregnancy and even with babies (please use it sparingly).
  • However, it has caused contact dermatitis in a small number of individuals.
  • If using on very sensitive skin, try it properly diluted on a small spot first.

General Safety Precautions:

  • Use essential oils only in diluted form on the skin and never internally.
  • Always be careful when using essential oils with children.
  • Give them only low doses, or better, consult a qualified aromatherapy expert before using.
  • Use essential oils with care and only under the proper guidance of an expert while pregnant or if you have liver damage, epilepsy, cancer, or other serious health problems.

Roman Chamomile is one of the most universally relied upon herbs for calming both mind and body. Although it is extremely gentle, it works as well as prescription medicine for bringing spasms, cramping, and convulsions to a halt. The technical term for this is antispasmodic.

The most severe asthma attacks can be brought under control in minutes, just by virtue of the bronchial spasms being relieved. This antispasmodic effect is also the reason why Roman Chamomile is relied upon to bring relief to teething or colicky babies, calm upset stomachs and smooth out muscle cramps.

In addition, Roman Chamomile relieves pain and is a nerve sedative-and, as if all that relaxation weren't enough, Roman Chamomile gives the extra gift of being bactericidal. Many of the conditions addressed by the stress-relieving influence of Roman Chamomile are considered psychosomatic, i.e., often directly attributed to one's emotional state.
