Wholesale Certified Organic German Blue Chamomile Essential Oil

From Wholesale Essential Oils, 100% pure Certified Organic German 'Blue' Chamomile essential oil. It is distilled using the cool-process CO2 distillation method. German Chamomile is highly regarded for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, particularly in topical applications. Our CO2 oil is a rich blue color, indicating a high level of natural matricin and chamazuline. The CO2 variety will generally have a higher concentration of matricin – making it slightly more green than blue and may be a stronger anti-inflammatory. Our German Chamomile Essential Oil is available from sample size up to 1 kg or more.

ABOUT THE OIL

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.

Aromatherapy Notes

The blue/green viscous CO2 oil has a potent, slightly sweet, warm and herbaceous aroma. If using for purely aromatic purposes, Roman or Cape Chamomile may be the ideal choice. The deep aroma blends well with Geranium, Lavender, Pachouli, Rose, Benzoin, Neroli, Bergamot, Marjoram, Lemon, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine and Clary Sage.

Traditional Uses

This herb has been in use for over 3,000 years for an array of skin issues and stress-related complications such as headaches and insomnia. The botanical name of Chamomile, "Martricaria", meaning "Caring for the womb" finds its echo in folk medicine that has always emphasized chamomile's emmenagogue properties (inducing menses) and its connection with the female reproductive system.
