  Chamomile, Roman, Hydrosol (no ratings yet)
Anthemis nobilis (syn Chamaemelum nobile), organically produced, Italy.


Roman Chamomile Hydrosol is extraordinarily valuable … soothing and relaxing. I know of nothing better to sooth dry, flaky, itchy skin, rashes, acne, eczema, etc. Skin problems including the mucus membranes, including mouth, gums, respiratory tract and anal and genital areas may safely be treated with this gentle and relaxing anti-inflammatory. A compress of Roman Chamomile gently eases a migraine. Some authorities recommend it for intestinal spasms and urinary tract infections. The essential oil is known to be effective against muscle spasms. I personally take the hydrosol orally for intestinal cramps and spasms. A pregnant friend used it as a sitz bath when she developed hemorrhoids. I use it to soothe “sandpapery” eyelids when I’ve been on the computer too long, and to “get the red out.”

Roman Chamomile water has been especially recommended for skin care for delicate complexions with allergic tendencies. A mild astringent, it is an excellent skin toner, but probably should not be used over the long term by very dry skin. Its astringency would benefit oily or inflamed skin.

Roman Chamomile is also known for its calming, almost sedative qualities. A spritz of Roman Chamomile Hydrosol in the air can calm the crankiest two-year-old. My son and daughter-in-law were amazed at the change from “cranky baby” to “happy baby” when I sponged my grandson’s face and arms with this wonderful liquid. I normally blended our Roman Chamomile Hydrosol and Lavender Hydrosol for washing my grandbabies, or spritzed the crib sheet with the blend before putting them to bed.

Jeanne Rose suggests a spritz of Roman Chamomile Hydrosol in the mouth for easing teething pains.

Roman Chamomile Hydrosol is a wonderfully soothing stress reliever for adults, as well as children. If its gently sedative effects are inappropriate at the time, try blending it with a bit of Melissa Hydrosol if you need to be alert. (That is a wonderful blend to use in the car, soothing and yet a bit uplifting and stimulating.)

I personally have used this Roman Chamomile as an eyewash when my eyes were tired, itchy and irritated...when I felt like I might be starting to come down with conjunctivitis. Hindsight being 20/20, I would recommend making a compress of the hydrosol the next time. There is too much risk of infection spraying anything in the eyes.

The essential oil percentage in this hydrosol must be high; that is obvious from the aroma.

Our hydrosols are packaged in PET bottles with atomizer tops for ease of use. Hydrosols are perishable: keep refrigerated. For more information on how they’re made and their uses, click here.
