Chamomile Lotion FAQ

Is chamomile good for skin?

While there’s not much research into the specific benefits of chamomile for skin, science suggests the flower contains several chemical compounds that have anti-oxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. When applied to the skin, chamomile oil and extracts may help address redness, hyperpigmentation, and acne.

How do you make a chamomile lotion?

At least two weeks before making the lotion, start the chamomile infused oil. Fill a pint jar with a cup of dried chamomile flowers, then fill the jar with sweet almond oil to within a quarter-inch of the top. If you'd like to use another oil with a similar texture, I can recommend apricot kernel, grapeseed, or cold-pressed sunflower.

What is chamomile oil used for?

When applied to the skin, chamomile oil and extracts may help address redness, hyperpigmentation, and acne. Chamomile may also aid in wound healing and soothe sensitive skin. Look for Roman chamomile extract or oil in serums, sprays, lotions, and peels.

What is the best chamomile moisturizer?

If you have dry, red, or irritated skin, a moisturizer with chamomile can help soothe and alleviate redness and inflammation. Try the Aspen Kay Naturals Glow Face Oil, Beplain Chamomile pH-Balanced Lotion, or evanhealy Blue Chamomile Day Moisturizer.
