Chamomile Essential Oil
Relaxing, sedative, hormone balancing
Chamomile essential oil has been used for centuries to calm and relax people,
as well as to treat nausea, insomnia and muscle and joint pain.
Roman Chamomile is one of the best essential oils for cranky, impatient, stressed out PMS (and menopause) symptoms.
It's also suitable for babies and young children (in very diluted form) to soothe crankiness and
fussines due to colic, teething or other stomach upset.
Put a warm chamomile compress on their tummy or give them a warm bath with a drop or two of chamomile in it.
Remember to dilute recipes to half strength for children and reduce the drops to one or two for babies.
Essential oils are powerful medicine!
German Chamomile essential oil (also known as Blue Chamomile) is super-effective for soothing and calming skin, as well as healing and regenerating tissue.
It's an excellent addition to any aromatherapy skincare recipe for eczema, psoriasis or other skin problems.
Both types of chamomile may even be able to help relieve headaches and migraines.
Try gently massaging diluted chamomile oil into your temples and sinus
areas (especially for stress and hormone-related headaches.)
