Chamomile (Roman) Essential Oil
Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) has a super sweet apple-like aroma and is best used for its sedative properties (think Sleepytime® Tea!). Its chemical makeup is loaded with esters, a family of molecules known to help support sleep, calm anxiety, and relax tight muscles. Roman Chamomile is a very potent oil so a little goes a long way.

Rich amber, the smell is very fresh and clean. Very pleased with the product, but am concerned that there is no orifice reducer on the bottle. There is a small pipette, but it has been my experience that an orifice reducer and pipette is a safer option. I never want to spill a drop of this precious fluid!
Let me know if this (no orifice reducer) was a mistake.
Thanks so much Pompeii!
I am in love with this Roman Chamomile. I'm not usually a fan of chamomile, but really wanted to use some to help me sleep a bit better. As soon as I opened the bottle I couldn't get enough. I use it at least a few times a week at night. A bit in my diffuser right before I go to bed or dab a drop or two in my palm and either inhale or rub all over my pillow and sheets. Sweet dreaming for me. Also great in my body oil too. Already on my second bottle.
I use Roman Chamomile paired with Clove Bud to manage intense stomach spasms. I cannot say enough about the quality of Roman Chamomile offered by Pompeii. I've never been disappointed!
This is my first time purchasing true Roman chamomile and I absolutely love it! The scent is divine!
This is the essential oil that led me to my current path in Aromatherapy. It was used to massage the newborns in the clinic where my son was born in Rome, Italy. It has wonderful antispasmodic properties for colicy tummies and helps little ones stay calm. Both parents AND baby get a deep, restful sleep.
