It’s been a long night, a stressful project, a trying season. When both body and emotions require a restoration of calm, reach for dōTERRA® Roman Chamomile. This floral oil comes from a daisy-like flower which, though less than a foot tall, is known for exerting a healthful effect on its neighboring plants. Roman chamomile’s positive influence on growing things in its vicinity is remarkable enough to have earned it the nickname “plant’s physician”! If this plant’s oil already sounds like one you’d like to add to your repertoire, I’m not surprised. Let’s dive into some specific benefits that accompany the two pounds of steam-distilled flowers that are packed into each bottle of Roman Chamomile.
Roman Chamomile essential oil comes to us through growing and distillation in the USA, as well as the UK, where tea is a cultural staple and residents are quite familiar with using potent herbs to create relaxing brews. Add a drop or two to your own cup and breathe in the sweet, apple-like aroma of Roman Chamomile while letting it deliver sweet soothing to the inmost parts.
The gentle floral aroma of Roman Chamomile is a perfect match for bedtime woes, a struggle with which many a parent is well acquainted. Mentally file this oil beside the likes of Lavender and Vetiver as you prepare to incorporate it into the bedtime routine. A good starting point is diffusing Roman Chamomile during the evening wind-down to help prepare the mind and body for peaceful rest.

Roman Chamomile is a helpful companion to carry with you into your little one’s room when they feel sleepless or distressed. A soothing application onto the bottoms of their feet can help create an atmosphere conducive to a calm night of rest. Mom and Dad will benefit from this sweet, herbal aroma as well; developing a smooth routine for sending the kids off to slumber is not always an easy task. Keep your bottle of Roman Chamomile equally accessible for nap times during the day to help address fussiness, and use it to support older kids and yourself in the sleep department, too.
Speaking of family matters, Roman Chamomile is particularly supportive of women in the postpartum period. This floral oil soothes both the skin and emotions, which both need tender attention in those precious first weeks of welcoming a new life. It’s also a good ingredient to add to any homemade blend geared toward supporting a woman’s health on a monthly basis. Though the idea of chamomile does bring sleepy thoughts to mind, you should know that ancient Romans believed this herb could bestow courage for battle. Keep that in mind as you use dōTERRA Roman Chamomile: there is a great deal of courage in calmness! Set yourself up with this diffuser blend that’s out to conquer.
