CHAMOMILE GERMAN Blue (Matricaria recutita), India.
Derived from the Greek word meaning ‘earth apple’ or ‘ground apple’ due to its herbaceous, apple-like scent, Chamomile is an annual plant of the composite family Asteraceae. The essential oil derived from the German Chamomile plant has a deep blue / green tint due to the chamazulene content within the oil, hence why it is often also called ‘Blue Chamomile’.
To the Egyptians it was a herb dedicated to the sun to cure fevers, and to the moon for its cooling ability. Today the oil is used for many purposes: being a mild sedative the essential oil has a calming effect on the mind and body, and is excellent in treating any type of inflammation – be it internal or external* (German Chamomile has stronger anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic effects than Roman Chamomile). Chamomile is said to be very effective on urinary stones as well as a stimulant of the liver and gall bladder, thereby improving digestion.
On the skin, Chamomile is both gentle and very beneficial, often used to calm red, dry or irritated skin, as well as helping to calm allergies, eczema, psoriasis and flaky skin problems. Use as an inhalation to combat emotional anxiety and tension associated with allergies, as a compress to relieve abdominal pain or throat infection, or in the bath or massage to treat PMS or irregular periods. Valuable in treating menstrual and menopausal problems.
Chamomile is an ideal oil for use with children when they are feeling disagreeable, impatient or tense – it works as a mild sedative, having a calming but not a depressing effect.
* As with any essential oil, do NOT ingest but apply to the skin diluted. Visit our DISCOVER pages for more informaiton on Aromatherapy Safety.
