Recipes We Love:Diffusor
This oil is great in the diffusor, although it is very strong. Just a few drops added to a base of another essential oil such as Orange, Lime or Frankincense makes a very nice impression.
Cold Compress for Headache or Migraine Relief
Put 5 drops of Cape Chamomile Essential Oil into a cup of cold water. Soak a clean cloth in the water, wring it out, then put the cloth over your forehead and your eyes. Re-soak the cloth every few minutes, and keep putting it on your face until your headache eases. (This is great for your skin too)
