Roman Chamomile Hydrosol

Roman Chamomile Hydrosol is usually quite pleasant smelling. It is bright, crisp, sweet, fruity, herbaceous and is reiminiscent to the aroma of the essential oil. I find that it does have a slightly more tart aroma than the essential oil.

Botanical Name

Anthemis nobilis / Chamaemelum nobile

Aromatic Strength

Mild-Medium (Depending on source)

Shelf Life

Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications

Suzanne Catty confirms that Roman Chamomile Hydrosol is mildly euphoric, sedating and helps to ease stress and help with depression, anxiety and insomnia.

Suzanne Catty recommends Roman Chamomile Hydrosol for baby care including use on baby's bed linens to provide a sense of calm. It can be used for diaper care and diaper rash. Catty recommends use of Roman Chamomile Hydrosol on sore/cracked nipples when nursing. Catty also suggests Roman Chamomile Hydrosol for use with anxious pets.

Topically, Catty encourages use of Roman Chamomile Hydrosol for skin care, but to use it modestly if you have dry skin. Likely due to its anti-inflammatory properties, she suggests it for use with rashes, rosacea, acne, burns and sunburn. [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 82-83.]

Len and Shirley Price report that the Roman Chamomile Hydrosol that they analyzed consists of5-33% esters and 11-23 alcohols and possesses the following properties: "antifungal, antiinfectious, antiinflammatory, antispasmodic, antiviral, bactericidal, balancing (to nervous system), calming, cicatrizant, decongestant, stimulating, uplifting ." [Len Price and Shirley Price, Understanding Hydrolats: The Specific Hydrosols for Aromatherapy: A Guide for Health Professionals (London: Churchill Livingstone, 2004), 102.]

Jeanne Rose adds that Roman Chamomile Hydrosol is a "psychic soother." [Jeanne Rose, 375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols (Berkeley, CA: Frog, Ltd, 1999), 170.]
