The Plant’s Physician
Roman Chamomile has been revered as a healing plant medicine for thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians offered it to the Sun God as a precious healing plant, and the Roman Empire used it for incense, tea and medicinal purposes.
Today it is grown and harvested in many countries, and must be harvested precisely at its peak for the highest and best yield of essential oil. It has been used in beer, in place of hops, and in perfumes and cosmetics for its apple fragrance and its soothing effect on skin.
Roman chamomile is known as the “Plant’s Physician” because it supposedly cures any sick plant that is placed next to it!
Here are just a few ways that you can use Roman Chamomile 10% essential oil as a medicinal and calming oil for yourself and your family:
