Roman chamomile promotes smooth, healthy skin and relieves irritations because of its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It is used as a natural remedy for eczema, wounds, ulcers, gout, skin irritations, bruises, burns, cracked nipples, chicken pox, ear and eye infections, poison ivy, and nappy rash.
Although it’s called “Roman” chamomile, its history as a celebrated and widely used herb extends far beyond Ancient Rome. Hieroglyphic records show that chamomile was used cosmetically for at least 2,000 years. Greek physicians prescribed it for fevers and female disorders. And although “Roman chamomile” was not the official name of the plant at the time, the term was given after it was seen sprouting around the Roman Colosseum in the 19th century.
Doctors throughout Europe and in the early settlements of America included chamomile in their medicinal bags because it cured pain, inflammation, allergies and digestive issues completely naturally and without side effects.
