What is Roman Chamomile Flower Oil?

Roman chamomile oil was one of the first essential oils used in aromatherapy, dating back at least 2000 years. Roman chamomile oil comes from the Chamaemelum nobile plant and is slightly different from German chamomile, although both have similar medicinal properties. Roman chamomile has a gentle scent that smells like apples and relaxes the mind.

Benefits of Roman Chamomile Flower Oil

The ancient Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians all used Roman chamomile oil as a natural remedy for a range of health issues. Here is what modern science says about the benefits of roman chamomile oil:

  • Relieves pain.

    When applied to the skin, Roman chamomile essential oil has been shown to relieve aches and pains associated with issues like osteoarthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Other studies show it may also be used to ease stress-related tension and migraine headaches.

  • Heals the skin.

    Roman chamomile oil has anti-inflammatory benefits and is often used to heal skin irritations (like atopic dermatitis), improve wound healing, and promote youthful-looking skin.

  • Eases gastrointestinal symptoms.

    From issues like indigestion to nausea and acid reflux, there are several digestive issues that improve with the use of Roman chamomile oil.

  • Promotes sleep and relaxation.

    When taken internally, Roman chamomile extract and oil can help improve sleep, calm stress, and relax the body.

What is Roman Chamomile Flower Oil Used For?

Like many essential oils, Roman chamomile flower oil is quite versatile. It can be used internally as an extract for digestive upset or in a diffuser for stress relief and insomnia. It is also commonly used topically in massage oils, lotions, or compresses.

For pain relief, Roman chamomile oil is best used topically, directly over an achy area. Roman chamomile oil’s ability to ease pain (especially joint and muscle pain) makes it a useful natural addition to our pain-relieving Unstoppable Sports Recovery Gel.
