Why the US and UK?
Roman Chamomile can be difficult to cultivate because of its sensitivity to fluctuations in weather conditions. The high and regular amount of rainfall per year in the Pacific Northwest and some parts of England—along with a relatively consistent climate—make these areas successful at growing Roman Chamomile.
While providing a sweet, floral aroma, Roman Chamomile can soothe body systems as it supports calming effects for the skin, mind and body.*
How does it work?
The flowers of Roman Chamomile resemble daisies with a prominent yellow center, white petals, and gray-green leaves. Some say that the flowers smell like apples. The plant grows close to the ground, only reaching about 1 foot (30 cm) in height. The essential oil is steam distilled from the flowers, which should be harvested for distillation shortly after blooming.
