Because Roman chamomile is a short-lived perennial shrub with very little chamazulene, the oil's hue is pale yellow or light blue. Ancient monks put this type of chamomile on "raised beds" that were made in gardens to lay invalids on and cure depression. Edward III scented his clothes and linens with chamomile, and Elizabethans spread the herb around to get rid of unpleasant odors. It has a profoundly calming effect on the nervous system.
With its sweet apple-like aroma, Roman chamomile essential oil helps to relieve depression and anxiety. It is also a powerful anti-inflammatory properties, helping relieve a host of issues.
