Roman Chamomile

Roman Chamomile

This is a beautifully herbaceous oil that we wait for to come in stock! That time is NOW!! ย This plant is steam distilled from its flower and was used by the Saxons in their top 9 herbs and in Europe for skin support.

 

What is this good for??

Well, the reason you need this oil is if you are like me and have children, specifically 3 boys! Roman Chamomile is wonderful and mild for children. It makes it a super choice for calming restlessness and anxiousness (especially in littles). It can help with irritability, nervousness and dispeling anger. If keeping emotions in check is on your list then you might want to give this one a try.

It is calming and soothing to the skin. Roman Chamomile is a great addition to a massage oil especially after a tough work out.

 

How To Use It?

Add Roman Chamomile to your diffuser and enjoy the fragrant calming effects. You can also apply topically to vitaflex points, or on location as you desire. The wrists and feet are my favorite place. This oil has some other really terrific benefits if you want to dig a little deeper check out the research.

 

Snatch your bottle here while it is in stock, breathe in and ENJOY!!!
