Chamomile and Aromatherapy

Chamomile flowers and essential oil are used to promote sleep and relaxation at home

German chamomile, sometimes spelled camomile, is a type of daisy widely spread around the world. You may have played the "He loves me, he loves me not" game with this flower as a child. I know I did.

Here are a few facts about the essential oil from this flower:

Botanical Name
Matricaria Recutica, Chamomilla Recutita, Matricaria Chamomilla or Matricaria Suaveolens
Extraction Method
Steam distillation of the flower
Essential Oil Colour
Yellow (Roman) or Blue (German)
Top note, and medium to strong initial strength, it has a warm, relaxing, rich, herbaceous aroma with a hint of apple and straw-like scents.
Important Constituents
For Roman: Isobutyl angelate, 2-methylbutyl angelate, methallyl angelate, isobutyl isobutyrate, isoamyl angelate

How Can You Use This Herb?

  • Tea. Trouble sleeping? When taken as an herbal tea, use two teaspoons of dried flower for one cup of boiled water. This herbal tea is well-known for its relaxation qualities and is especially good to help you fall asleep. Talk about a natural sleep aid!

    You can also use this tea for a sore stomach. When treating your stomach, take a cup every morning on an empty stomach for a couple of months. I recommend Chamomile Tea from Adagio.
