Botanical Name: Chamaemelum nobile
Parts Used To Make Essential Oil: Flower Petals
Distinctive Features: Roman Chamomile, also known as English Chamomile or Low Chamomile gets its name from the fact that the flowers are low growing as compared to chamomile blue (although the flowers aren’t blue). Chamomile tea has a myriad of health benefits. The reason why it has become so immensely popular in the west within a short span of time is because of its healing capacity of the gut. Chamomile when used in the form of oil can provide additional health benefits.
- Dewy petals are picked in the twilight. This is a task that requires skill, hence experienced workers are used to picking the nascent leaves.
- The petals are then collected and taken into the distillery.
- Petals are soaked in water for some time and then transported into copper stools called Degs
- The next step is to seal the Degs to lock the steam from escaping.
- The Deg is connected to a copper pot via a hollow bamboo pipe called chonga.
- The Deg is now heated until steam starts to form.
- As the still is heated, the water molecules from nascent petals and water mixture start to evaporate and change into steam.
- After a few hours, the distillate is condensed, and then the mixture is connected to the setup.
- The filtered liquid is emptied out in a copper utensil and again the same process is repeated.
- The essential oil extracted as a result of the second distillation is in the purest form
- Provides relief from cough and cold.
- Can provide relief from severe lung congestions.
- Has anti-inflammatory properties.
