Chamomile conjures thoughts of cosy evenings and soothing mugs of tea; however Roman Chamomile is one of the oldest recorded medicinal herbs and has been used for centuries to treat a host of ailments. Ancient Egyptians used the calming properties of this attractive plant as a cure for fever and Chamomile has been a staple remedy for British herbalists for generations. Native to Western Europe, the Chamo-mile plant is cultivated commercially in the UK, France and Hungary. The essential oil is extracted from the attractive white flowers and stalks of the Chamomile (Anthemis nobilis) plant, which when distilled, release a sweet, fruity and herbaceous fragrance. Chamomile is widely known for its calming properties on the mind and is used in aromatherapy to combat anxiety and soothe frayed nerves. It is also an excellent aid for insomnia. Used on the skin, Chamomile will help to sooth irritated or inflamed skin either from exposure to the sun, dehydration or general dryness.
