Chamomile

Overview

Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) has fine, feathery leaves and tiny daisylike flowers with bright yellow centres. This perennial plant, growing 9-12 inches tall, is native to southern and western Europe and is now cultivated in Belgium, Bulgaria, England, France, Hungary, and Italy. Its flowers are steam distilled to produce a yellow essential oil with a sweet, warm, herbaceous scent.

German chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) grows about 2 feet tall and has smaller flower heads and fewer petals. Originally from Europe and Asia, it is now found in eastern Europe, Egypt, North America, and former Soviet regions. Its deep blue oil, high in azulene, has potent anti-inflammatory properties and a sweet, slightly fruity, and spicy aroma.

Emotional Effects

Chamomile oil is known for its calming and relaxing properties, making it effective against depression, insomnia, and stress. It helps reduce anxiety, irritability, and nervousness, dispelling anger and stabilising emotions. Applied over the throat, it aids in expressing true feelings.
