Roman Chamomile

Roman Chamomile - Chamaemelum nobile

This beautiful fragrant plant grows up to ten inches high; it has feathery leaves and daisy-like white flowers. Native to southern and western Europe and naturalized in the United States. Roman chamomile is mainly cultivated in England, Belgium, the United States, Italy and France.

The plant’s leaves and flowers make a delicious tea which is commonly used for extreme nervous system disorders, stomachaches and other digestive upsets. Roman chamomile is a wonderful herb for infants and children in coping with colic and digestive disorders. I especially enjoy adding this plant to my bath water for its calming effects.

The essential oil is steam-distilled from the flowering tops. It too has a calming effect on the nervous system, helping to relieve headaches, insomnia, nervous tension and stress-related complaints. This beautiful essential oil also aids with indigestion, nausea, eczema, dermatitis and inflammation

So next time you need to relax, make yourself a cup of chamomile tea, add some Roman chamomile essential oil to your aromatherapy diffuser, sit back and enjoy the peace.

This is general information regarding Roman Chamomile essential oil. We encourage you to learn more about this oil and plant through research and see how it can benefit your life. You can purchase essential oils through FrogWorks.

When placing an order for individual essential oils, please call or email.

 

Jake's Canine Remedy

Jake’s Canine Remedy:

This unique, all-natural product, comprised of high-quality essential oils was made in honor of the memory of our dog Jake.

Jake was a beautiful golden retriever who suffered from hot spots. At the young age of 16 he had a severe hot spot and was given a steroid shot to relieve the problem. This injection proved to be too much for his system to handle, and he developed kidney failure. After saying good-bye to Jake, my husband turned to me with tears in his eyes and said I needed to make a remedy for dogs so they would not have to resort to this type of treatment. And, that was when Jake’s Canine Remedy was born.

Dubbed “the miracle spray” by many of my customers, this remedy was designed as an all-natural, noninvasive alternative treatment for dogs who suffer from hot spots. It has proven to be highly effective and has since treated many dogs with a range of skin problems, including itchy skin, bald spots, dermatitis, fungus, tick and flea bites, small abrasions and so much more. Jake’s Canine Remedy has made dogs and their owners happy by providing a gentle-but-effective alternative to harsher, invasive traditional treatments.

It is Jake’s and Frogworks’ mission to get the word out about Jake’s Canine Remedy to all the dogs who suffer from skin problems. So please help us spread the word about this great all-natural product. (Thanks Jake!)
