Description

Originally found in the meadows of Western Europe, utilization of the Chamomile plant and its essential oil have been recorded throughout history including ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian civilizations. The Greek “Father of Medicine”, Hippocrates purportedly favoured Chamomile to help cool fevers and flushed skin.

Chamomile’s remedial abilities were recognized early on by many cultures worldwide, all of which had their own way of honouring this unassuming, but incredibly versatile plant.

With the belief that the Pagan god Woden gifted the Chamomile plant to them, the Saxons included it in their Nine Sacred Herbs ritual for healing. The Egyptians regarded this plant as a gift of the Sun God Ra due to the flower's resemblance to the sun and its powerful rays.

Everything that makes this essential oil so naturally nourishing & potent is a result of the steam distillation that the flowers' delicate petals and buds undergo. During the process of steam distillation, Azulene is produced. Research suggests that Azulene has an impressive ability to reduce inflammation and naturally support the body’s own healing response - perfect for comforting irritated skin, soothing sore joints and relieving aching muscles.

Frequently Asked Questions

I've purchased Chamomile Essential Oil before, but it wasn't blue. How come?

Before buying any Chamomile Essential Oil, always double check whether it is Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile) or German Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla). Roman Chamomile Essential Oils has almost no Azulene, the superstar component of German Chamomile Essential Oil and therefore, it appears pale blue to clear.

Is the blue colour added to the Chamomile oil?

No. The striking deep blue colour of German Chamomile Essential Oil is a completely natural result of the steam distillation process that the flowers undergo. Named after the Spanish word for blue 'Azul' - Azulene is a natural anti-inflammatory, antioxidant-like compound that supports overall well-being.

Will this oil stain my skin?

Not at all. When properly diluted in a suitable carrier oil, there’s no need to worry about any awkward blue tint left behind from the oil!
