About the Plant:

All the varieties of Chamomile are similar plants, but they have very different therapeutic effects and different chemical compositions.

The scent of German Blue Chamomile Essential Oil is heavier, spicier and earthier than that of Roman Chamomile. The oil is also thick and inky blue in contrast to Roman Chamomile, which is lemon-colored and thin.

Both plants are short, with daisy-like blossoms on single stems, although Roman Chamomile only grows a few inches from the ground, while German Blue Chamomile can reach up to 2 feet in height.

You can also distinguish Roman Chamomile from German Blue Chamomile by snipping the cone of the blossom. If it is hollow, it is Roman Chamomile. If the cone is solid, it is German Blue Chamomile.

Where it Grows: 

Certified Organic German Blue Chamomile is native to Europe and Asia. Amrita® Aromatherapy is proud to have Certified Organic German Blue Chamomile from Egypt.

Traditional Uses and Lore: 

Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans loved Chamomile. The Egyptians dedicated the daisy-like flowering plant to their sun god, Ra. The Greeks gave Chamomile its name by combining two Greek words, “chamos” and “melos,” meaning “ground” and “apple” respectively. 

In England, it was popular to grow Chamomile as an aromatic and cushiony alternative to grass that can be mowed completely flat. To this day, Buckingham Palace continues to maintain an all-Chamomile lawn, which dates back to the reign of King George V. Since the Middle Ages, Chamomile has been grown on stone garden benches, creating a softly padded and fragrant seat.

It remains unknown which varieties of Chamomile were used by which cultures in ancient times. Although all types of Chamomile look similar and have many benefits in common, in modern times it is recognized that there are several distinct varieties of Chamomile, with different scents and sometimes very different therapeutic properties.

Chamomile tea, a kitchen cupboard staple, is made from German Chamomile, and the deceptively mild-smelling herb gives fast-acting relief to children with temper tantrums (and their parents). German Chamomile is also the preferred type of Chamomile for use in skin and hair care products.

German Blue Chamomile is a thick, intensely blue, spicy-scented essential oil, and is the most widely used variety of Chamomile. Beauty products infused with German Blue Chamomile become soothing, anti-inflammatory skin treatments.

While Roman Chamomile is generally preferred for its antispasmodic effects, German Blue Chamomile is the preferred essential oil for anti-inflammatory effects. However, its most valued therapeutic benefits (anti-inflammatory, muscle-relaxing, and skincare) are only present if the batch of oil has the correct chemical composition.
