The Roman Chamomile herb has been used in European medicine for over 2,000 years. In herbal medicine, chamomile is used for nervous tension, upset stomach, and children’s ailments.
Roman chamomile essential oil is one of the best calming, anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic essential oils. It is a good disinfectant for the urinary tract, and it soothes renal inflammation. Chamomile is also good for any skin irritation—rashes, acne, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and itching. It is excellent for soothing burns and reducing scarring and for soothing sore nipples.
