The Egyptians worshipped Chamomile above all other herbs and dedicated it to the sun to cure fevers and to the moon for its cooling abilities. Roman Chamomile is a small, hardy perennial that grows in light soil in full sun to approximately ten inches in height and is cultivated in Germany, France, Spain, Morocco and France. This beautiful, fragrant herb was a beloved aromatic “strewing” blossom in medieval times that was spread on floors, and when trod upon, it emitted a beautiful fragrance. It is still cultivated in herb gardens worldwide for its aromatic and medicinal qualities.

Revered for its calming properties, the essential oil of Roman Chamomile also has great value for healing skin and for tissue regeneration. In addition to its medicinal qualities, Chamomile is highly valued as an important component in cosmetics, shampoos and perfumery.

Roman Chamomile oil is extracted from the flowers of the plant, with a yield of about 1.7%.
