Visagenics Bulgarian Roman Chamomile Essential Oil
The soft, heady floral aromas of chamomile are highly recognizable, immediately instilling a sense of calm, peace, and serenity. It has the ability to calm the mind and body, most especially the stomach and digestive system, and it also is very effective at relieving skin irritation and reducing inflammation.
Roman chamomile, or chamaemelum nobile, is also known as English chamomile, a low-growing, small-flowered, fragrant perennial that is used commonly as a ground cover in many parts of the world.
The Romans, in particular, used it extensively to bathe in, walk on, and add to their medicines and cosmetics. The name itself is derived from the Greek kamaimelon – kamai meaning ground and melon meaning apple, so—quite literally—ground apples!
Steam distilled from the petals of the Bulgarian chamomile flower, it delivers a soft, fruity, and herbaceous aroma that presents as a medium middle fragrance note with a candy-like apple scent. It is known to be safe to use for children and even for sensitive skin conditions. Its peaceful, calming effect provides a soothing atmosphere at bedtime, though it is also highly praised for its beneficial effects on the skin and hair.
Bulgarian Roman chamomile essential oil appears as a clear to light yellow colored, sometimes slightly milky, low-viscosity liquid.
