Our German Chamomile is sourced from flowers Certified Organically grown in Germany. It is a deep, rich blue color, indicating a high level of natural matricin and chamazuline. Matracin is naturally turned to chamazuline during the steam distillation process. The CO2 will generally have a higher concentration of matricin -- making it more of a greenish, deep-sea blue -- and may be a stronger anti-inflammatory than chamazuline. It also has a naturally thicker texture and an alpha-bisabolol content of 16%. It will need gentle warming to pour ~ the 'specification' on the oil is that it becomes liquid at or below 104 deg. F. This annual aromatic herb grows up to 60 cm tall and has branching stems with one daisy-like white flower on the end of each. It is native to Europe and Asia and was brought to North America and Australia for commercial production of essential oil.
