DESCRIPTION:

Roman Chamomile has a fresh, fruity, and sweet aroma well known for its calming effects, digestive complaints, improvement in skin conditions, and for inflammation.  This product is available in a 15 mL amber glass Euro bottle. 

All Wellness Warrior essential oils are organic.

COMMON USES:

Roman chamomile is commonly used for its anti-inflammatory and calming properties.  Common uses include digestive issues including flatulence (gas), indigestion, loss of appetite, and vomiting all due to mental stress and exhaustion.  Roman chamomile is extremely beneficial when used topically as it decreases pain and swelling.  This oil is indicated topically for the treatment of burns, cracked nipples, decubitus ulcers (bed sores), diaper rash, eczema, frostbite, hemorrhoids, swelling, and pain.  Orally, Roman chamomile reduces pain associated with sore gums, eases pain associated with heavy menstrual periods, and relieves sinus congestion and rheumatic disorders. This product is recommended to aid in falling asleep faster and promoting deep sleep.  Roman chamomile is indicated for the relief of indigestion in infants.

PROPERTIES:

Analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antimutigenic, antispasmodic, anxiolytic, expectorant, laxative, stimulant, and tonic.

HOW TO USE:

Aromatic – Add 3-4 drops of oil to distilled water and diffuse; inhale directly by cupping your hands around an open bottle and breathe in deeply through your nose.

Topical – Directly apply 1-3 drops of oil to the area of concern or to reflex points (dilute using a carrier oil for people with sensitive skin).  Use one drop behind each ear to aid in restful sleep.

Internal – Add 1 drop into hot water or to add flavor to an herbal tea prior to bedtime.

Oral – Apply 1 drop directly to the gum tissue to relieve pain associated with sore gums and dental problems.

Children – Safe for children with proper dilution, including as a diaper rash ointment.  Please refer to our Wellness Warrior Essential Oil Dosing Guide.

CAUTION:

As with all essential oils, it is important to test a small area for skin sensitivity before applying without a carrier oil.  Wellness Warrior suggests diluting essential oils with a vegetable-based carrier oil, such as raw coconut or jojoba oil.
