Product description: Roman Chamomile ( Anthemis nobilis ) was regularly used by ancient Egyptians and the Moors, as well as being one of the Saxons’ nine sacred herbs. It was called the “plant’s physician” because it also promoted the health of nearby plants. Known more commonly as "chamomile", Roman chamomile is a herbaceous plant of the family Asteraceae. It is used in culinary use, but also in terms of medicinal (especially herbal tea) and cosmetics. It is frequently confused with two other medicinal plants that resemble it and which are locally known as "chamomile": the German chamomile Matricaria recutita and the feverfew Tanacetum parthenium. It is originated in the United Kingdom, and is therefore not native to Italy as its name might suggest. Its essential oil is extracted from its flowers: it takes about 100 kg to produce between 400 ml and 900 ml, which is why it is considered valuable. It is used in beauty products, including shampoos and natural dyes for blond hair. Roman Chamomile is distilled from the daisy-like flowers of the plant, harvested just as they bloom. While it is usually slightly yellow, sometimes it can be a bit blue-green in color, just not as strong a blue as German Chamomile. The scent has an uplifting herbal aroma with a slight flowery feel to it. Botanical Name : Anthemis nobilis  Appearance: watery viscosity.
