About Blue Chamomile Essential Oil
German "blue" chamomile essential oil enhances a healthy inflammatory response and a wide range of other applications, including supporting healthy joint function and promoting relaxation and deep, restful sleep. Its supportive ability to enhance a healthy inflammatory response along with its ability to nourish and restore healthy sebum or skin oil have made it an excellent natural support for skin health and beauty.
Blue chamomile’s therapeutic profile includes its rare ability to sedate without depressive effects and to promote feelings of well-being for people in all phases of life, including children. It is also soothing and supportive to musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal and reproductive systems. Gentle in its action, this variety of chamomile has a high level of safety.
How to Use Blue Chamomile Oil
Blue chamomile can be applied topically, as a compress, in the bath, through direct inhalation, or used with a diffuser.

Interesting Blue Chamomile Oil Information
Camomile's genus name, "matricaria," is derived from the Latin word "matrix," or womb, which refers to chamomile's widespread traditional use by women for gynecological health. The common name, "chamomile," is derived from the Greek word "chamos," or ground, which is a reference to this plant's low growing habit, and from "melos," or apple, for the sweet apple-like scent of its blossoms.
Though they share some therapeutic properties, German, Roman and Moroccan chamomile oil are all different species. German, or blue chamomile, has a higher azulene content than its Roman counterpart. This constituent also gives the oil its characteristic blue color. The azulene is not present in the fresh flower itself but is produced during the process of distillation.
Chamomile is often called "the plant doctor" by botanists due to its ability to assist in the health and growth of other essential oil producing plants, especially those from the mint family.
Blue chamomile was highly regarded by ancient Egyptians for its healing properties, was and is widely employed in Latin American folk medicine, and is today one of the most commonly used healing herbs, particularly in the form of teas and tinctures, in the West.
Safety Considerations for Blue Chamomile Essential Oil
