I am in love with this Roman Chamomile. I'm not usually a fan of chamomile, but really wanted to use some to help me sleep a bit better. As soon as I opened the bottle I couldn't get enough. I use it at least a few times a week at night. A bit in my diffuser right before i go to bed or dab a drop or two in my palm and either inhale or rub all over my pillow and sheets. Sweet dreaming for me. Also great in my body oil too. Already on my second bottle.

I use Roman Chamomile paired with Clove Bud to manage intense stomach spasms. I cannot say enough about the quality of Roman Chamomile offered by Pompeii. I've never been disappointed!
This is my first time purchasing true Roman chamomile and I absolutely love it! The scent is divine!
