IMG_6004.JPG

These monthly spotlights are to share with you the amazing power of these beautiful essential oils. However, instead of merely looking up what benefits they have and writing about it, I will be sharing how each oil has personally affected me and my family. I invite you to come on this journey of discovery with me. Let’s dive in!

 

I struggled with choosing the focus oil for this month because there are so many oils that have positively impacted my family’s life. In the end I decided to choose an essential oil that has helped my family with numerous issues. It also happens to be the first oil I purchased that wasn’t Lavender or Tea Tree. Without further ado I would like to introduce you to this soft, calming and gentle little oily friend: Roman Chamomile.

 

Chamomile essential oil has been in numerous products I have purchased over the years, mainly skincare. However, it wasn’t until I took my eldest son to see my Kinesiologist that I was able to see the numerous benefits. She recommended I rub diluted Roman Chamomile into my son’s palms morning and night for a few weeks, with the intention that it will help him foster calmness, cope better with upsets and soothe him when he felt overwhelmed. I am pleased to report that it definitely worked for him. I noticed a significant change in his mood and also how he responded to external stimuli. In fact I loved this oil so much that I went out and bought it.

 

Since the initial introduction of Roman Chamomile into our family, I have now used it for many different reasons. I have added a few drops to a roller ball bottle (along with some other oils), which I apply on my littlest guy’s jawline (externally, not in his mouth). This is really helped with his teething, and helps him to calm down at night-time so he can sleep. I have also add Roman Chamomile to a dropper bottle, and created a blend for him if he has an upset tummy. Being a little guy, he’s digestive system is still getting used to solid food. So I have discovered this really helps him sleep better.

 

For my eldest I have also made up a room spray in a spritzer bottle, which I spray on and under his pillow every night. This has Roman Chamomile, as well as a few other calming and sleepy oils in it. It really assists him in feeling calm and supported during the night.

 

As I mentioned before, I have purchased skincare in the past with chamomile essential oil. However, since starting my own essential oil journey, I now add it to my daily face serum. I have sensitive skin and I have found that adding the Roman Chamomile to my Jojoba based serum really helps with calming any redness and sensitivity.
