Our German Chamomile, also known as Blue Chamomile, has a sweet, warm herbaceous scent. It has a beautiful dark blue hue when freshly distilled due to high levels of azulene. Its main chemical components are oxides and sesquiterpenes, which gives German Chamomile its anti-inflammatory properties and makes this an excellent essential oil for skin care. : One of the oldest known herbs, German Chamomile can be traced as far back as ancient Egypt where fragments of chamomile have been found while excavating Egyptian tombs. In ancient Greece, Hippocrates, known to some as the father of medicine, is said to have used chamomile as a remedy for fevers. : Based on a 2009 study from the journal Life Science, Chamomile was an effective inhibitor of prostaglandin molecules in white blood cells, a response to inflammation. The flavonoids in chamomile penetrate beneath the skin’s surface, so when the oil is applied topically at the proper dilution, it could help relieve inflammation. : It’s traditionally used to improve sleep, alleviate stress and anxiety, relieve allergy symptoms, and improve the appearance of your skin. Use diluted in a carrier oil to massage sore muscles or as a cold compress. This calming essential oil has even been shown to help ease digestive issues! : Blend Chamomile with citrus essential oils like Grapefruit, Bergamot, Lemon, and Lime, as well as floral like Lavender, Jasmine, Geranium, and Ylang-Ylang. Our German Chamomile has already been diluted to 10% in Jojoba oil, but you can also order the concentrated oil in a 2 ml bottle. : Get a bottle of this lovely multifaceted essential oil today by clicking on the link in our bio!
