My last post went into a bit more detail about the beautiful essential oil of Roman Chamomile, so for a bit of background click here to check it out. Then lets get into some recipes!

An important note here is about how you are likely to buy this oil. As it tends to be one of the more expensive essential oils, you may find it in a 3% jojoba blend. For more info on this kind of essential oil see my article  3% blends in jojoba.

I’ll do a few recipes with 100% essential oil and a few with 3% in jojoba.

1. Nourishing Body Oil Blend

For a coat of your body use 3 teaspoons of carrier oil in a little dish and, add 7 – 8 drops of essential oil.

***** Always put the drops of essential oil into the bottle or dish first, then add the carrier oil. It gives the scents time to create a synergistic fusion.

For a 50ml bottle of oil add 25 drops and see my articles “Ratios for Blending Essential Oils – A Reminder of the Basics” and “Aromatherapy – It’s Easy as 1 2 3”

“From Hot to Cool”

To soothe tired skin and muscles –

Roman chamomile   2 drops

Marjoram                 3 drops

Lavender                 3 drops



For soft, lovely skin –

Roman chamomile    3 drops

Pink grapefruit           2 drops

Palmarosa                 1 drop

2. Personal Aura Cleansing Mist & Room Mist

In a 50ml mist bottle filled with water add 25 drops of oil

(depending on the packaging you have, you may need to use a little alcohol -like vodka- at the bottom of your bottle first, so the oils disperse into smaller drops to prevent clogging the atomiser top. I’ve found sometimes it works just with water, and sometimes it doesn’t – very annoying!)


Roman chamomile         8 drops

Cedarwood Virginiana    6 drops

Orange                          8 drops

Nutmeg                         3 drops


“Pink Bubbles”

Surround and protect yourself with Shakti Gawain’s pink bubble of love –

Roman chamomile       7 drops

Mandarin                      8 drops

Cinnamon                     6 drops

Vanilla CO2                  4 drops * see my article for more info on CO2 extracts What are CO2 Extracts in the World of Aromatherapy?



Let big problems become small problems –

Roman chamomile       8 drops

Juniper                         8 drops

Lime                             8 drops

Vetiver                          1 drop


Happy blending and remember to use your intention when you are creating your formulas.See my article about intention.

  1. Hi Suzanne,
    Roman Chamomile has been on my I’m-curious-but-it’s-too-expensive list. I found a wholesale source at $34 an ounce. Can get a 1/4 or even 1/8 ounce & make my own jojoba dilution. Want to try the pulse point blends & the skin care. Sounds beautiful! Hot to Cool will be great for suddenly-too-hot LA. And why not let big problems become small easily handled ones!!!
    wonderful post, Jackie
    ps. A pastry chef friend has requested an apple scented fragrance. Could this be a starting point?

    • Hi Jackie if it was me I’d get an ounce for $34 because when you smell it you won’t regret it. When budget permits I think the pure oils are the way to go. If you do buy the pure don’t dilute it just keep it pure and blend as you go.
      Also I’m not sure at all that it smells like apple and really the only scent your friend will get apple from is a synthetic apple fragrant oil. X

      • Thanks for the details, Suzanne. I’m with you on the quality. Will save up. I ordered a sample of an apple juice CO2. Will let you know if it’s anything of interest. Appreciate the coaching. On another note, yesterday a friend turned me on to Anise by Now. I thought it would smell like the culinary seed, but it smells like Pastis! It’s delicious and only $5 for an ounce. Does it have an aromatherapy action? Going to work on a simple natural perfume blend with it.

  2. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now eacdh time a comment
    is added I get several e-mails with thee same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove peoplee from that service?


    • Hmmmmm not sure that I can do anything about that. Maybe search your email to the very first message that asks you if you want to follow the posts – see if there’s a link you can click on. I know what you mean I’ve done it on other people’s posts, received an email asking me if I want to follow and then when I’ve realsied what I’ve done I just don’t click on the confirm link. I’ll have a look in the help section for you.
