Roman chamomile is designed by nature to release stress and relieve us when we’re overwhelmed. It’s especially beneficial in easing tension that builds up in the solar plexus. The solar plexus is the vital center of our psychological needs and wants, located, not coincidentally, halfway between our gut and our heart. Tension in this area usually fuses feelings of frustration, vexedness, and irritation. These feelings may drive us to be overcontrolling or push us to try harder, to the point where we lose control and then criticize ourselves for being childish and weak!
Roman Chamomile Stress-Relief Aroma Recipe
2 drops Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) essential oil
1 drop lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) essential oil
2 drops orange (Citrus sinensis) essential oil
1 drop ylang ylang (Cananga odorata) essential oil
- Add the essential oils to one ounce of jojoba, coconut or almond oil, or an unscented lotion.
- Shake the bottle until blended well.
Buy high-quality essential oils from reputable sources. You can feel confident that you are buying quality oils from the following suppliers:
The only difference between any of these suppliers is price point, with Mountain Rose being least expensive. Keep all of these addresses handy, because when an oil is out of stock on one site, you can be sure to find it on another recommended site.
Roman chamomile can ease ego-driven tension, frustration, resentment, and depression. Its warm, fruity aroma gives a sense of satisfaction, while its gentle slight bitterness cools us down. It helps us let go of fixed expectations, and enables us to accept our limitations and feel more open to help and support from others.
I recommend PET plastic with a flip top for travel or if you plan to keep the formula in your purse.
