Chamomile is one of the oldest known medicinal herbs in ancient Egypt and other Mediterranean countries. There are two herbs commonly called Chamomile: Roman Chamomile and German Chamomile. Roman Chamomile is a low-growing, trailing perennial ranging from 10 to 30 cm in height with finely divided, parsley-like leaves which give the plant a soft feathery appearance. The white daisy-like flowers are borne on solitary and hairy stems. The plant is native to southwestern and northwestern regions of Europe and is scattered around the eastern Mediterranean and Crimea. It has become abundant in the United States, where it has escaped cultivation to grow freely in cornfields, roadsides, and other sunny, well-drained areas. The generic name, chamomile, is derived from the Greek words "khamai", meaning "on the ground," and "melon", meaning "apple."

Roman Chamomile essential oil has stomachic, antiemetic and mildly sedative properties. It is often used to relieve those afflicted with dyspepsia, nausea, pregnancy-related vomiting, anorexia, dysmenorrhea and stress-induced flatulent dyspepsia. It is particularly helpful when use with female disorders such as painful or irregular periods, scanty period, vaginitis and menopausal problems. Roman Chamomile makes an excellent treatment for premenstrual syndrome. Its diuretic properties lessen PMS-induced fluid retention, while its antidepressant properties helps minimize feelings of depression, irritability and stress.

Roman Chamomile essential oil can also be used to treat headaches and migraines, as well as symptoms of candidiasis and chronic fatigue. It can be used to cure gingivitis, earache and arthritis. Roman Chamomile also relieves intestinal cramping and helps relax the internal muscles and organs due to its antispasmodic properties. It is anthelmintic, and can be used to expel parasites from the body. Apart from that, it is a powerful disinfectant, particularly when used on the urinary tract.

Roman Chamomile essential oil has a sweet aroma punctuated by fruity herbaceous undertones and floral top notes. Its scent is warm and dry, but not tenacious.

The oil is highly calming and relaxing; it can combat depression, insomnia and stress. It eliminates much of the emotional charge of anxiety, aggression, irritability and nervousness.
