Roman Chamomile has been used as an herb since ancient times. The word chamomile is derived from the Greek words khamai, meaning on the ground, and melon, meaning apple—likely because of its distinct fruity aroma. Roman Chamomile is a low-growing plant with parsley-like leaves and daisy-like flowers. The flowers are steam distilled to create Roman Chamomile essential oil.
