Chamomile (German) Essential Oil
Chamomile, known by gardeners as a “companion plant” and “plant’s physician,” was a staple in English gardens because it is said to be protective of the health of other plants, even preventing the “damping off” of seedlings in greenhouses. It has calming and pain soothing properties as well as skin benefits.
