Day 10 – Roman Chamomile

Roman Chamomile as been used for thousands of years and is able to be traced back to the days of the Egyptians and ancient Romans. The fact that it is named Roman Chamomile has nothing to do with the Romans use of the oil however, only that the flower was named as such due to it being found in that location.

Roman Chamomile has a broad range of uses as reported by many aromatherapists, including, skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, minor injuries like sprains and burns and stomach conditions like diarrhea and nausea. This particular oil is most well known and widely used for it’s calming effects on depression, anxiety and insomnia, as well as to calm children when they are uncomfortable from minor illnesses, fevers, ear aches and the like. Dilution of Roman Chamomile is recommended for children.

I enjoy using this gentle and relaxing oil in a hot bath at the end of the day or in my lavender pillow spray. ?????????

To make the pillow spray:

4oz water

5 drops of Lavender

3 drops of Roman Chamomile

Combine in a glass spray bottle and enjoy a few spritzes on your pillow whenever you like.
