The History of Chamomile Roman
Chamomile Roman essential oil, also known as Anthemis nobilis, is one of the most used species from the notorious daisy family. The origin of the word 'chamomile' derives from the Greeks. Flowers are a white to pale yellow in colour and surround the vibrant yellow heads; this is what produces the essential oil we know and love today. It tends to grow wild in temperate to warmer regions of Africa, Asia, and Europe. In Europe, the main cultivation countries include England, France and Germany.
Chamomile Roman has been documented as far back as 2000 years ago in ancient Egypt. It was used due to its healing properties against illnesses. The ancient Greeks and Romans also found great use with Chamomile and exploited its therapeutic characteristics to great extents. Today, it is more or less being used for the same reasons, with it also being applied in recent years to help with nausea, insomnia, stress and pain. It is very popular for its relaxing, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antimicrobial effects.
Chamomile Roman in Numbers
While there are various types of chamomile essential oil, roman is by far the most prized and sought after. Due to high demand, the price therefore increases. Limited resources cause the price to increase even further. These flowers only grow in certain parts of Europe and are only suitable for harvesting during short periods of the year. In saying this, a lot of people don't mind the high prices because of the oils incredible odour, and its variety of uses. A 10ml bottle will currently cost you £18.95, and 1KG will cost you £1,101.95. I suggest you ask Santa nicely for this one.

Everyone has heard of Chamomile, and it's easy to understand why. The oil is quite simply, amazing. It has been used throughout the world for over two thousand years, and it has shown no signs of slowing down in popularity. The only thing I guess to put a spanner in the works is the price. Yes, it is popular, but I'm sure it is not in everyone's price range, especially with oils like Lavender around to save the day. You can always have a hot cup of Chamomile tea, delicious!
