Product details

Our added value

Our partnerships in the Piedmont region began 40 years ago when Mr.Vieille started working with a tarragon producer. Gradually, the producer moved towards cultivating Roman chamomile. Today, the torch has been passed to the third generation of farmers, from the grandfather to his son, from the son to his son-in-law. With time, the partnership has expanded to include other families. Our agreements include the support of producers in the development of their activity, from field cultivation to distillation. We encourage the sharing of knowledge and the transmission of know-how through the organisation of inter-producer meetings.

Roman chamomile essential oil blends perfectly with leather or tannic accords. The olfactory qualities of Roman chamomile blend with both floral feminine perfumes and aromatic masculine perfumes.

Antispasmodic, soothing for the skin, facilitates sleep. Promotes emotional balance in case of irritability, soothes fears and anxieties that manifest themselves at the digestive and respiratory levels.

Roman chamomile is native to Europe and north Africa. It is an iconic plant of the Chemillé region, where it was imported in the early 19th century by Parisian herbalist Pierre-Aimé Godillon. There are two main varieties: Flore pleno with double flowers, and Treneague with single flowers. The most widely used is the double flowered variety, which is easily recognised by its white flower heads that look like pompoms. This variety is sterile and is usually propagated in autumn using cuttings.

Roman chamomile blooms in June and July. It is harvested mechanically when the first faded flowers start to appear. Roman chamomile is often harvested in the afternoon. As soon as it is picked, Roman chamomile must be distliled to prevent any fermentation and to prevent the essential oil from any loss in terms of quality.
