Roman Chamomile Essential Oil
Relax and feel relief with the gentle soothing aroma of Roman Chamomile Essential Oil. With a light, herbal scent that’s warm and slightly floral, chamomile has been used for centuries in traditional medicine across the globe from ancient Egypt to imperial China. It’s anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antispasmodic.
Roman Chamomile, also known as Chamaemelum nobile, English Chamomile, or Whig Plant, is a perennial variety that’s native to Morocco and Europe. Roman Chamomile essential oil uses include treating nausea, indigestion, gas and bloating, and cramps. When diluted with a carrier oil, this essential oil also helps heal minor cuts, burns, and bruises.
If you’ve ever had chamomile tea, you’ll know that this ingredient is also a powerful natural sedative. Roman Chamomile essential oil is non-habit-forming and won’t cause you to instantly fall asleep, but this oil can help treat insomnia, nightmares, tossing and turning, and other sleep disorders. It gently relaxes your central nervous system, helping you fall asleep faster and sleep more deeply.
Other Roman Chamomile essential oil benefits include purifying the air against germs, allergens, and pollutants, sanitizing surfaces, and promoting respiratory health. Try diffusing or inhaling Roman Chamomile to relieve congestion and support lung function.

Roman Chamomile essential oil benefits for skin include restoring the skin’s natural moisture barrier, exfoliating dead skin cells, boosting collagen production and elasticity, and reducing discoloration like hyperpigmentation. Roman Chamomile also soothes dry, cracked skin, reduces swelling and inflammation, and treats acne and other blemishes. It may also help reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles.
