Roman Chamomile

I chose Roman chamomile for the Titch Haven logo (that's right – it's not a daisy!) as this oil has beautiful calming properties. I thought it was the perfect representation of the 'small retreat in a busy world' that I was creating. In plant lore, chamomile symbolises 'patience in adversity'. Again, this reflects much of the work I do in my business – helping others to overcome difficult times and managing their emotions through this process.
Perhaps you enjoy cups of chamomile tea – a beautiful bedtime drink. The aromatic tea brings calm and can help with sleep. Roman chamomile essential oil has a similar aroma and sedative effect to the tea but is much more fragrant and powerful. Roman chamomile has an unusually fruity aroma for an herb – it can sometimes be described as being apple-like. It is a sweet yet warm smell. Roman chamomile essential oil is produced by steam-distillation of many, many flowers. The plants are grown in France, Italy and England; the plant can sometimes also be referred to as English chamomile. As it tends to be one of the more expensive essential oils, you may find it for sale diluted in jojoba. Since it is a strong smell, these diluted oils still bring great aromatherapeutic benefit as a cheaper option that I can recommend.
Calming Effects
The high ester content of this oil provides a balancing and antispasmodic effect. Roman chamomile oil is very soothing. It is useful for calming anger and frustration. Roman chamomile is one of the few essential oils that is safe to use with children. When diffused, it can help to calm irritable babies and quieten temper tantrums in young ones. If well-diluted, it can be used on sore, gassy tummies and grumpy, over-tired toddlers – to relieve both the child and the parent!
Roman chamomile demonstrates anti-inflammatory action. It can be used to relieve inflamed skin and to ease arthritis, sprains and muscle aches. A major benefit to using Roman chamomile oil is in reducing anxiety and over-thinking. It is helpful for combatting insomnia as well as physical complaints that result from anxiety, such as muscle tension, digestion issues and headaches.

Using Roman chamomile oil can be a way of adding a fruit-like element to an essential oil blend without using an actual fruit oil such as a citrus essential oil. Light yet intense, Roman chamomile works well with the floral scents of lavender, jasmine, rose and ylang ylang.
