Before attacking the enemy on the battlefield, Ancient Roman soldiers were said to rely on Roman chamomile oil to give them the courage and mental clarity they need during combat. Today, it is not so much used for peace of mind in military violence, but this calming essential oil is still known to provide a wealth of benefits to people.
Roman chamomile is best known and enjoyed for its warm, herbaceous, slightly fruity scent. It is said to soothe irritated skin and is in many beauty and skin care products. It is also a wonderful addition to massage oils, as it is effective in relieving muscle discomfort after exercise. Other uses include alleviating migraines, headaches, allergies, tonsillitis, arthritis pain, and insomnia. It can be enjoyed in a diffuser, added to bathwater and lotions, or mixed with water to create a mouthwash.

Using Roman chamomile plant or oil may lead to allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to plants from the Asteraceae or Compositae family, such as ragweed, chrysanthemum, daisies, and marigolds. If you have any sensitivity to these plants, we recommend avoiding this essential oil or first performing a skin patch test prior to use.
