Chamomile Essential Oil
These daisy-like flowers with their soft, earthy scent are one of the oldest and most trusted herbs to heal and soothe. To the Anglo Saxons, chamomile was one of the nine sacred herbs and it was an essential plant in monastery gardens. It has long held associations with unification, protection, sleep and meditation. Chamomile plants near windows and doors were said to guard the home against evil spirits and washing one’s hand in chamomile water was believed to attract wealth. Often used in traditional blessings, newborn babies were bathed in chamomile water and the flowers were sewn into pillows to promote drowsiness and peaceful sleep.
