A native to Western Europe and North Africa, Anthemis nobilis is a low growing flowering perennial plant. The name comes from the Greek meaning ground apple - due to its pleasant fragrance. Generally smaller than Chamomile German, growing to around 30cm, it possesses a series of angelates and butyrate esters. This plant has been used since ancient times for lowering fevers, hormonal support and as a gentle yet effective sleep aid. It can be consumed as tea, taken in pill form or, of course, as an essential oil.
A sweet and heady aroma with undertones of green herbs and fresh apple.
Blends well with: Lavender True, Sandalwood and Chamomile German.
The Egyptians dedicated this plant to the sun as it was believed to cure fevers. Roman Chamomile has traditionally been included in shampoos to lighten hair when exposed to the sun. It has long been considered a soothing plant used for anxiety, stress and the promotion of sleep. It has been diluted in topical blends to reduce inflammation of cuts and skin irritations and to ease discomfort of swollen gums. It was found to be particularly suitable for the young and fragile and has also been indicated for temper tantrums and nightmares.
