Roman chamomile is a perennial, herbaceous plant with delicate, lacey foliage. It bears small white flowers with yellow centers, resembling daisies. This aromatic plant releases a delicious smell of overripe apple when the flowers are crushed. Etymologically, the name makes reference to this: Chamomile comes from the Greek chamaimelon, meaning “dwarf apple.” The flower head harvest takes place in July and August for production of essential oil. When hydrodistilled, Roman chamomile produces a distillate that is a mixture of essential oil and distillation water. The distillation water contains a small amount of the solubilized oil. The scented water is called a hydrosol or floral water. Roman chamomile water is herbaceous and fruity, with note of hay.

Roman chamomile was sacred in ancient Egypt, dedicated to the sun god, Ra, and has been a cherished plant for 4,000 years, its virtues being utilized through the ages. It is listed in all the old herbals of Europe and is one of the nine sacred plants of the Anglo-Saxons. Despite the great botanical complexity of the various chamomiles, Roman chamomile is distinguished as the olfactory level and its properties. It is different from wild chamomile (Ormenis mixta) and blue or German chamomile (Matricaria recutita).
