Along with Lavender, Roman Chamomile can be described as a panacea in aromatherapy and is one of the most useful and popular of all essential oils. Being one of the gentler oils, it is safe for use on all the family, except during early pregnancy.
Try blending 4 drops of Chamomile Roman and 4 drops of Lavender in 2 teaspoons of Sunflower oil and adding to a cool bath for dry, sensitive skin, to encourage relaxation or soothe general aches and pains.
Incorporate a steam facial into your weekly skincare routine. After cleansing, add 2 drops of Chamomile and 1 drop of Geranium to a bowl of just-boiled water, drape a towel across your head and shoulders, lean over a bowl and allow the vapours to penetrate your skin. Pat your face dry and apply a moisturiser.
Precautions: Non-toxic, non-irritant; can cause dermatitis in some individuals.
