Roman Camomile Essential Oil


Roman camomile (or chamomile) essential oil offers a fantastic set of benefits. For example, it has been used for centuries to help treat skin conditions, relieves digestive issues, reduces inflammation and more. It has natural antispasmodic, antimicrobial and antioxidant properties that work wonders as a part of natural health remedies. If you’ve never tried Roman camomile essential oil, below are eight reasons why you should!

You likely have at least heard of camomile. Furthermore, you probably know that it helps induce a state of relaxation. But what is Roman camomile? It’s actually not that different from other varieties of camomile, such as German camomile. In fact, there are numerous types of camomile that are available today. However, the types that offer the best medicinal benefits are Roman and German. And one of the most prominent benefits each type has to offer is the ability to relieve anxiety. To learn more about Roman camomile, read the health benefits below.

Roman Camomile Essential Oil Health Benefits


  1. Fights Anxiety - You may have enjoyed a cup of camomile tea after a long, hard day at work. It has likely helped you to unwind, too. That’s because camomile, as well as Roman camomile essential oil, has mild sedative properties that can help calm nerves and reduce anxiety. The oil’s fragrance travels to the brain when inhaled and serves as an emotional trigger to promote relaxation. To relieve anxiety and anxious feelings, or to simply induce relaxation, try adding a drop or two of the essential oil to your water or tea. Furthermore, you can add chamomile essential oil to a warm bath. You may also try diffusing the oil or sniffing it straight from the bottle to ease anxious feelings.
  2. Relieves Allergies - The antimicrobial and antioxidant properties of Roman camomile oil have the ability to relieve swelling and congestion caused by allergies. Furthermore, applying the oil topically can also help heal skin irritations caused by food allergies. Mix a few drops with a carrier oil and apply to the affected area. Be sure to avoid use around the eyes.
  3. Helps Alleviate PMS Symptoms - Roman camomile essential oil is a natural antispasmodic. It can soothe menstrual cramps and body aches that are associated with PMS. Diffuse the oil at home to help boost mood and soothe PMS symptoms. You may also want to try using it in a warm bath. This will help relieve symptoms as well as induce a state of relaxation. When you’re in pain, chances are you tense up, which can actually make the pain worse. A relaxed body, however, is more likely to experience a decreased amount of pain intensity. Use Roman camomile essential oil to help your body relax, and thereby reduce pain.
  4. Cures Insomnia - Studies have shown that Roman camomile essential oil can help improve sleep. This occurs because Roman camomile can reduce stress levels as well as balance hormones. Diffuse the oil in your bedroom to help fight insomnia and promote a better night’s rest. If your diffuser allows, set it on a slow-release so that you can reap the benefits throughout the night. Alternatively, use Roman camomile essential oil in a bath right before bedtime.
  5. Roman Chamomile oil illustrationBoosts Skin Health - Roman camomile essential oil can help treat eczema, gout, poison ivy and other skin irritations. This is due to its anti-inflammatory properties. It promotes smooth, healthy skin by getting rid of bacteria. Apply a drop or two to a cotton ball, then dab onto the affected area. With a smaller amount such as this, you may not need to dilute it with a carrier oil. For a general face wash, add a couple of drops to the face wash you already use. Alternatively, make your own face wash using the essential oil and pure Castile soap.
  6. Promotes Heart Health - Roman camomile essential oil contains high levels of flavonoids, which promote heart health. The flavonoids work to lower blood pressure and relax the heart, significantly reducing mortality from coronary heart disease. To promote heart health, add a drop or two of Roman camomile essential oil to your tea. Drink one to two cups daily.
  7. Supports Digestive Health - Roman camomile oil is commonly used to help heal gastrointestinal conditions. For example, it can be used to treat or relieve gas, acid reflux, indigestion, diarrhoea and nausea. All of this is thanks to the natural soothing properties of Roman camomile. Add a couple of drops to your tea to help relieve digestive distress.
  8. Helps Relieve Arthritis Pain - Studies have shown that the flavonoids in Roman camomile oil are able to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. You can app the oil topically or added to a warm bath to help treat rheumatoid arthritis symptoms throughout the body. For best results, mix with a carrier oil prior to topical application. If you use it in the bath, and your pain is accompanied by swelling or inflammation, be sure to follow up by icing the affected area. This is because while a warm bath may feel good and will help relieve pain, the heat can also make swelling worse. You don’t have to forgo a relaxing bath, however. Just be sure to use ice treatment for a duration of at least 20 minutes after you’ve taken your bath.
  9. Roman Camomile Side Effects to Consider - If taken internally in large quantities, Roman camomile essential oil can cause vomiting. If you are allergic to ragweed, marigolds or daisies, you should avoid using this essential oil, as a similar allergic reaction may occur. Furthermore, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, do not use camomile essential oil. Camomile tea and other herbal teas have shown to be harmful to unborn fetuses. For external use, be sure to dilute the essential oil with a carrier oil. Examples of this include coconut and jojoba. Diluting essential oils for topical application helps cut down on possible irritation of the skin. If this is your first time using Roman camomile essential oil externally, test a small area before applying liberally. Discontinue use if any allergic or otherwise adverse reaction occurs.

Essential OilImportant Information


  • * Essential Oils are highly concentrated extracts of medicinal plants, very powerful in their effect and should be used with moderation and great care.

Essential oils used for massage - general instructions for dilution


  • If used other than for ambient diffusion, i.e. for massages, essential oils should always be diluted in a good quality vegetable carrier oil before applying to the skin (i.e. sweet almond, sesame, jojoba, olive oil, etc.).
  • The standard dilution for adults is 1–3% essential oil, or about 3–10 drops of essential oil in 15 ml (= 1 tablespoon) of vegetable oil (20 drops = 1ml).
  • For children, sensitive skin and during pregnancy the dilution should be 0,5%-1% (1-2 drops in 10 ml).
  • For a full bath use for adults 5–15 drops and 3–5 drops for a footbath. The essential oils should be diluted with some carrier oil, a little cream or honey to help them disperse in the water.

Specific oils requiring higher dilution


  • Essential oils of Clove bud, Cinnamon (leaf or bark), Oregano, Savory, Thyme (thymol and borneol) can irritate the skin, use only highly diluted (0.5%—1% dilution).
  • For sensitive skin care should also be taken with Aniseed, Fennel, Lemongrass, Melissa (Balm), Peppermint, Sage, Wintergreen, and sometimes also Basil, Ginger, Lemon and Bitter Orange (1 - 3 % dilution).

Some precautions


  • These oils (except the citrus oils) should also not be used for children under 2 years and during pregnancy.
  • If pregnant avoid in addition: Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Juniper, Sweet Marjoram, and Myrrh.
  • If applying photo-sensitizing essentials oils like Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin or Lemon to your skin (even in dilution) do not expose your skin to direct sun for several hours afterwards (to avoid pigment spots). The furocoumarin free Bergamot is ok.
  • In case of high blood pressure Hyssop, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme (thyme) are contra-indicated; a gentle massage with relaxing essential oils, however, is very beneficial.
  • In case of Epilepsy do not use the essential oils of sweet Fennel, Hyssop, Rosemary and Sage.
  • If you have a medical condition we recommend that you seek the advice of a Maharishi Ayurveda practitioner or aromatherapist.
