Health benefits of chamomile oil Chamomile oil is one of the essential oils used in aromatherapy and has its health benefits on the body. The use of oils (aromatherapy) has a long history for therapeutic and spiritual purposes and can be traced back to the Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. Essential oils can be administered viz aerial diffusion, direct inhalation, and topical applications. Chamomile oil is a natural oil extract from plants for the promotion of health and maintaining the totality of well-being. Antimicrobial effects In a study in France to assess the antimicrobial effect of chamomile oil, the results showed that chamomile oil has high antimicrobial activity and was effective against Gram-negative bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus and Enterococcus faecalis) and Gram-negative bacteria (Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, Klebsiella pneumonia, and Salmonella sp.) and Candida albicans (yeast) when tested. Chamomile effective for eczema and ease associated discomfort Eczema is a condition whereby the skin is inflamed. It causes discomfort to the body. It is characterized by itching, patches, impaired skin integrity, redness, and so many others. Lawless, identified that pain from eczema can be treated by applying the oil of Roman chamomile to the surface. In a study on the anti-inflammatory effect of chamomile, it was shown that applying chamomile topically is moderately effective in treating atopic eczema. In another study carried out in 2000, the results showed that chamomile is 60% effective in the treatment of eczema. The cream containing chamomile extract (kamillosan (R)) when compared to 0.5% hydrocortisone cream showed a slight superiority after two weeks of usage. Chamomile efficient and safe for osteoarthritis (knee) treatment In a 2015 study in Iran to evaluate the efficacy and safety of chamomile oil in osteoarthritis (knee) patients, the patients were randomly grouped and treated 3 times per day for 3 weeks. After 3 weeks, patients treated with diclofenac vs those treated with chamomile oil were compared; the latter showed a less demand for analgesic for pain and positivity in physical function compared to the former. Chamomile improve sleep quality in insomnia patients In a study carried out among sixty elderly people to evaluate the chamomile extract effects on the quality of sleep. The participants were randomly shared into two groups; the control and treatment groups, and the latter was fed with 200mg of chamomile extract and 200mg of wheat flour were given to the control group twice daily for 28 consecutive days. The assessment was done after the intervention and the treatment group fed with chamomile showed an improvement in sleep quality compared to the control group.

Has potential to decrease atopic dermatitis The effectiveness of German chamomile (GC) oil was evaluated in a study on mice for atopic dermatitis. The GC was applied for up to 4 weeks and were evaluated at the end of 2 and 4 weeks.
