Chamomile comes from the Greek chamos, or ground, for its low growing habit, and melos, or apple, for the sweet apple-like scent of its blossoms. Though they share some therapeutic properties, German, Roman and Moroccan chamomile oil are all different species. German, or blue chamomile has a higher azulene content than its Roman counterpart.
Chamomile was known to the Romans and used for incense and in beverages, although the term “Roman chamomile” was not coined at this time. Instead, it was seen growing in the Colosseum in Rome by a 19th century plant collector.
Chamomile is often call "the plant doctor" by botanists because of its ability to assist in the health and growth of other essential oil producing plants, especially those from the mint family.
Blue chamomile was worshipped by the Egyptians for its healing properties, widely employed in Hispanic folk medicine and is today one of the most widely used healing herbs, in the form of teas and tinctures, in the West.

I've always liked Chamomile - in any form. But until I ordered Floracopeia's Roman Chamomile, I was never in love. I felt compelled to put in most all of my blends. Then I tried another company's version. Not the same. I now understand the small bottle. :) This really is a treasure.
