Overview

Blue, or German, chamomile is widely known for its calming properties.

The different Chamomile Oils that we carry…
Blue Chamomile essential oil has a high content of azulene, the active organic compound of chamomile, which bears a blue color. This oil is most suitable as an ingredient for skin care products. Blue chamomile is derived from the German chamomile plant, which is an upright growing annual.

Roman Chamomile essential oil is used in body care recipes, as well as for aromatherapy. It has a very pleasant, soothing, apple-like aroma. The Roman chamomile plant is a low growing, perennial ground cover.

Moroccan Chamomile essential oil is not from a true chamomile plant. It is used mainly in perfume blends, and for aromatherapy. The plant is an annual that grows in the Mediterranean and in the Middle East. This is a product new to the market, it does not have a long history of traditional uses like true chamomile.

Packaging

1/4 oz. oils are packaged in an amber vial with screw cap. A dropper is provided, though we do not recommend storing the dropper in the bottle. 5mL, 1/2 oz., and 1 oz. sizes are packaged in an amber glass bottle with a reducer cap.

Label Updates

We are currently transitioning to a smudge-proof label for our essential oils. If ordering more than one oil you may receive both types of labels as we make this transition. Our new labels are a poly-base and printed in full color in-house.

Herbal Miscellany

Blue chamomile oil has a higher azulene content than Roman chamomile oil. This constituent also gives the oil its characteristic blue color. The azulene is not present in the fresh flower but is produced during the process of distillation.

Precautions

This oil may interact with certain drugs. Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children.

Before using topically, perform a small patch test on your inner forearm or back by applying a small quantity of diluted essential oil and apply a bandage. Wash the area if you experience any irritation. If no irritation occurs after 48 hours it is safe to use on your skin.
