Chamomile of Italy Essential Oil, Chamaemelum nobile, 5ml, Live Live & Organic
Roman Chamomile is said to evoke peace, love, tranquility and purity of spirit.
Our Roman Chamomile from Italy has a powerfully diffusive, intense, sweet, fresh-fruity and soft herbal aroma with berry and apple-like notes and displays a light herbal/woody note in the drydown. Italy is not the oldest civilization to cultivate this useful plant, but the Mediterranean climate and Roman Chamomile’s hardy, scrappy, sown-by-the-wind nature have not only enabled it to survive there, but to thrive.
The main components of Roman Chamomile essential oil are the esters of angelic and tiglic acids (including the angelates and metacrylates) comprising up to 80% of the total oil.1 Perfumers in particular find great value in these two esters for creating warm, sweet and fruity tea-like notes in their creations.
In some spiritual traditions, the aroma of Roman Chamomile is said to evoke peace, love, tranquility and purity of spirit. Different authors have claimed it benefits the grumpy, impatient, rarely satisfied and disagreeable. Children are typically attracted to the fruity and comforting aroma, succumbing easily to the laid back, carefree vibe Roman Chamomile embodies. Roman Chamomile oil seems universally beloved - its equilibrium and brightness are sought after by earthlings of all ages.
We like the character of this particular oil and its unusual aromatic profile.
Health Benefits of Chamomile:
One study looked at the effects of Roman chamomile extract on sections of human intestine. They found that it had muscle-relaxing properties. This could help explain why chamomile oil has been used for digestive conditions like indigestion and cramping.
A 2017 study assessed the short-term treatment of generalized anxiety using chamomile extract. Researchers found that after eight weeks, 58.1 percent of participants reported a reduction of their anxiety symptoms.
Low morning levels of a hormone called cortisol have been linked with anxiety disorders. A small 2018 study found that chamomile therapy helped reduce anxiety symptoms and increased morning cortisol levels.
