Frequently Asked Questions
How to make Roman Chamomile essential oil?
  • Roman Chamomile essential oil, Anthemis nobilis, is made via steam distillation. In steam distillation, plant material is placed in a still, water is added, then heat is applied to the unit. As water heats, plants release their essential oil, the oil rises with steam droplets that are sucked into a pipe and the oil and water are then separated. While it may not be possible to make Roman Chamomile essential oil at home without a still, you can make aromatic hydrosol water that contains many of the same therapeutic benefits as essential oil.
