Chamomile's my drug of choice,
you can have your coffee beans.
Just give me some relaxing tea;
I'll tell you what it means.
A savory cup will start my day
or help me sleep at night.
I ever keep a cup near me
and always within sight.
Nothing soothes my aching pains
like a calming brew.
Google it upon the web
and you will see it's true.

Arctander notes the following:
Roman Chamomile is a pale blue, mobile liquid (when fairly fresh) of sweet, herbaceous, somewhat fruity-warm, and tealeaf-like odor. The odor is extremely diffusive but has little tenacity. The flavor is somewhat bitter, but also fruity-herbaceous.
He says Roman Chamomile isnot used too much in flavors but more often than the German in fine perfumery, where its spareing use imparts a warm yet fresh note and a natural depth which is difficult to obtain by other means He recommends blending it with bergamot, jasmine, labdanum, neroli, clary sage, oakmoss. He says the pale blue (due to presence of the ester Chamazulene) will fade with time but the odor of the oil does not change even if the color does.
There are many studies on Roman Chamomile. It's indicated in aromatherapy for anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anxiolytic activity and for dementia. It's also one of the gentlest esstnail oils and can be used in blends for children.
