The Roman variety of chamomile is a perennial ground-covering plant. Steam distilled from the flowers, it is a clear, thin liquid with a strong, warm middle note. Its aromas are sweet and fruity with a distinctly herbaceous green-apple scent. Used to calm the worried mind, it can be effective in relieving migraine, tension headaches and mild depression as well as in alleviating stress and insomnia. Added to cosmetic skin preparations as a balm for skin irritations and to reduce the appearance of blemishes, skin discoloration and bruises.

On the recommendation of the International Federation of Aromatherapists, TruGardens does not endorse taking essential oils internally unless specifically directed and prescribed by a qualified healthcare practitioner who is also trained in clinical aromatherapy. Avoid using during pregnancy, or if you suspect you might be pregnant, except on the advice of a qualified practitioner. Store all essential oil products safely out of reach of children. Essential oils are potent, and a little bit goes a long way. Do not use essential oils undiluted directly on the skin as they can cause irritation. Keep away from children, and do not apply near the eyes, mucous membranes, sensitive or broken skin. Every individual reacts differently to essential oils: Always perform a ‘test patch’ properly diluted in carrier oil to determine sensitivity.
