Roman chamomile essential oil is characterised by fruity and syrupy notes. It is commonly used to aid digestive problems due to its antispasmodic properties. It also has a calming effect and is therefore highly useful if experiencing anxiety*.
In 2018, difficult weather conditions and bouts of blight forced farmers to harvest Roman chamomile early. As a result, yields and quantities have been lower than expected.
The essential oil is obtained via steam distillation of the flowering tops. The primary constituents are isobutyl angelate and isoamyl methacrylate (30-45%), isoamyl angelate (12-22%), and methylallyl angelate (6-10%).
