Historically Chamomile has been used by humans for over 3,000 years and has played an essential part in the pharmacopeias of the ancient Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks. Throughout European history chamomile has been planted as ground cover at churches and monasteries for its revered calming effects.

For children under 13 use a 5% dilution or less. For infants and toddlers use a 1% dilution (less than 6 drops per ounce of carrier); ideally it would be diffused, however for skin irritation topical application is helpful.
