There are two main chamomiles used in aromatherapy, Roman (Anthemis nobilis) and German (Matricaria chamomilla/recutita). Both are of high quality and interchangeable in blends. Chamomile is considered one of the safest and most gentle of the essential oils and is subsequently often used in applications designed for babies, small children and sensitive skin. Tinderbox supplies the Roman essential oil, due to the inhibitive price of the German variety for many people.
