There are two types of Chamomile, Roman ( Chamaemelum nobile ) and German( Matricaria recutita ).
The use of Chamomile dates back to Ancient Egyptians times. The Egyptians dedicated the herb to their gods due to its curing properties and its use to fight fever. Chamomile is soothing, calming and anti-inflammatory. It is very valuable for skin conditions where the skin is sensitive, red or dry. I use Chamomile essential oil as an ingredient in Calming oil and Chamomile balm due it is great benefit for dry itchy skin irritations such as skin allergies, rashes, eczema ,burns and psoriasis.
Chamomile is calming and soothing on a mental and emotional level too and promotes sleep, alleviates anxiety and stress. Chamomile is a  versatile herb which has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antibacterial properties that is used on digestive problems, and is a gentle herb used for teething babies.
