The aroma of Organic Roman Chamomile Hydrosol is reminiscent to the aroma of chamomile tea. It is more herbaceous than the essential oil. It is slightly floral with a sweet, fruit-like aroma. Organic Roman Chamomile Hydrosol is a remarkable hydrosol for its use both in emotional and skin care applications.
In skin care, Organic Roman Chamomile is a strong anti-inflammatory. It makes a wonderful toner and is helpful for oily or acne prone skin. Suzanne Catty recommends it as a make-up remover. It eases the sting of insect bites and sunburn. It is also can help ease muscular aches and arthritic conditions.
Emotionally, Organic Roman Chamomile Hydrosol is a nervine and possesses sedative properties. It calm the nerves and is the ideal hydrosol for inclusion in formulations for depression, stress, anxiety and insomnia. It makes an excellent room mist and linen spray for providing calming and relaxation during stressful days and at bedtime.
Organic Roman Chamomile Hydrosol is calming and is both safe and recommended for use in babycare and childcare formulations. Its remarkable calming properties makes it a wonderful addition to sprays for baby's room, baby's bathwater and for use to wipe after diaper changes. It is a strong anti-inflammatory and can be used as a soothing wetting agent for natural baby wipes. It can also be blended with one of our lavender hydrosols for a synergistic anti-inflammatory and calming blend. Suzanne Catty mentions that dabbing the hydrosol on the gums of a teething baby can providing soothing relief.
Suzanne Catty also recommends its use in calming pets and we definitely see promise in this application for the hydrosol.
