Description

Chamomile is one of the most gentle essential oils, making it ideal for children. It is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, bactericidal and sedative. Aromatherapists have used it to treat bruises, allergies, stress and depression. It is helpful for sensitive skins. It is used in aromatherapy to help hormone fluctuations and to ease period pains.

The most commonly used varieties of chamomile are Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis) and German chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla, syn. M. recutita). It is a sweetly scented annual or biennial with branched stems and finely divided leaves. Daisy-like flowers are produced from early summer to autumn. Flowers are collected when first fully opened and used in many ways.

Chamomile can be used as an alternative to lavender, but works well with it in blends. Many believe it to be calming for the mind, body and soul, soothing for both the emotions and the skin. It is referred to as the oil for everything and has retained its popularity throughout the last century, both as a hair dye and conditioner. Chamomile's colouring ability is due to a weak yellow colouring matter, called apigin, which acts as a weak dye. It is slow acting and must be applied regularly.

To make our chamomile infusion, we add the flowers to boiling water and strain the mixture. We use this infusion in products where its soothing and gentle properties will be most effective.
