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 CO2 from Germany.

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.

Note: Depending on the climate, CO2 essential oils can sometimes not be liquid at room temperature. If this is the case, simply run the closed bottle underneath water from the hot water tap for a couple of minutes in order to liquefy it. Please be careful not to burn yourself with the hot water. Alternatively, you can slowly lower the bottle into a saucepan of boiling water for a couple of minutes, but be careful not to burn yourself or to let the bottle touch the bottom of the saucepan.

Safety Precautions:

  • Certified Organic German Chamomile CO2 Essential Oil is one of the mildest oils available in aromatherapy.
  • It is safe to use during pregnancy and even with babies (please use it sparingly).
  • However, it has caused contact dermatitis in a small number of individuals.
  • If using on very sensitive skin, try it properly diluted on a small spot first.

General Safety Precautions:

  • Use essential oils only in diluted form on the skin and never internally.
  • Always be careful when using essential oils with children.
  • Give them only low doses, or better, consult a qualified aromatherapy expert before using.
  • Use essential oils with care and only under the proper guidance of an expert while pregnant or if you have liver damage, epilepsy, cancer, or other serious health problems.

The CO2 version of German Chamomile is a thick, brown-green, spicy-scented essential oil. People who are used to the steam-distilled version at first wonder what this is all about. The deep blue color of the steam-distilled oil comes from chamazulene, an anti-inflammatory substance that is not present in the plant itself. However, the CO2 extracted oil is an even thicker essential oil than the steam-distilled, with more of a greenish hue and a milder scent. It is much more anti-inflammatory than the steam-distilled version. Its chemical composition is even more effective for treating skin conditions than steam-distilled German Blue Chamomile. It is considered a superior quality of German Chamomile Essential Oil.

While Roman Chamomile is mainly antispasmodic and has a much more pleasant scent, and therefore is more suitable for diffusion, German Chamomile’s predominant feature is its powerful anti-inflammatory quality. It is also muscle-relaxing. Naturally, the oil lends itself to Massage and Topical Application.
