German Chamomile Essential Oil
German / Blue Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) Essential Oil
Uses: Aside from being famous in teas, the German chamomile plant is also praised for its healing effects in various herbal applications. As a matter of fact, Germans often refer to it as "alles zutraut," which means "capable of anything." It's also been mistakenly referred to as the "European ginseng," given its cure-all capabilities. This is also referred to as Blue Chamomile. It contains chamazulene, which gives the oil its distinctive dark blue color and anti-inflammatory properties. German Chamomile essential oil has carminative, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and anticatarrhal properties (or helps the body remove excess mucus). This beneficial essential oil penetrates deep into the layers of your skin where its potent anti-inflammatory action can restore and soothe irritated skin, mouth ulcers, burns, bruises and other skin conditions.
