One of the most recognized and well-used flowers on our planet is Chamomile. Known as ground apples by the ancient Greeks because of the aroma and flower being similar to that of apple blossoms, chamomile flowers have a deep history when it comes to our health. Be honest, everyone has had a cup of chamomile tea at some point in their life right?
Once used to flavor beer before the discovery of hops and used as a scented water to give Roman soldiers courage before a battle, chamomile has also been used in perfumes, religious ceremonies and medicinal support for generations. This sweet wildflower was considered a gift by the Egyptians from their sun god, letting them know when it was time for planting. In early Christianity, chamomile flowers were recognized as a way to ward off evil and protect against illness. Chamomile continues to be a popular backyard plant and well loved herb used in cooking, teas and natural medicinal support.
Chamomile is well known for it’s soothing capabilities to help with stress and insomnia but some of the more ancient medicinal uses of this flower included protection against plagues, respiratory issues and kidney stones.
Today, chamomile essential oil continues to provide natural health support for several needs including:
Lowering blood pressure
Parasites and worms
Insect bites and stings
The chamomile flower is a natural antihistamine and antibacterial plant that can be used in place of harsher allergy medications and hand sanitizer cleansers.
The doTERRA Roman Chamomile essential oil can be taken internally through tea, water or direct under the tongue or in a capsule. It is also gentle enough to use directly on the skin and used aromatically to achieve desired benefits.
Oil of Spiritual Purpose
When we think we lack purpose or meaning in life we can really start to question what life is really all about. It’s more than just paying bills and going to work every day but maybe even our regular routine is adding to this misleading thought that we are without a firm direction or purpose. Chamomile essential oil helps us work through these feelings and discovery the deeper meaning and purpose of our being. We can expand our peace in ourselves and quite possibly realize our true calling.
This oil helps us sort through the fuzzy and unclear messaging in our way that is limiting our potential and holding us back. It helps us find that fulfilling solution we are seeking and feel emotionally connected to our higher power.
Chamomile is a mild aroma oil that suits well with other oils that also support the need to relax from stress and pause from our routine. When looking to amplify the benefits of chamomile consider using it with:
Blue Tansy for taking action on a new direction or purpose filled idea
Frankincense for deeper insight into spiritual connection and big picture meanings
Copaiba for high stress and trauma that is confusing our direction
Lavender for soothing and calming
