BOZNIA and HERZEGOVINA. Blue Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) Essential Oil, Steam Distilled
Matricaria recutita, also known as German Chamomile, produces an essential oil with a high content of the compound azulene, which gives it a blue color. Its scent is warm and sweet, with a slight undertone of fruit. Aromatically it is considered a middle note for blending.
Blue Chamomile essential oil is valued for its calming properties and its soothing, antiseptic actions for skin care. Properly prepared, it can play a role in treating conditions such as acne, eczema, and diaper rash, or added to bath formulas. Its anti-inflammatory action is both gentle and powerful, and it can be helpful for addressing many painful issues.
Our essential oils are sold in amber glass bottles with a dropper orifice for drop-by-drop administration. Do not ingest essential oils unless under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner or experienced aromatherapist. Essential oils should always be diluted in a carrier oil before being applied to the skin. (Some examples of carrier oils: Jojoba, Sunflower, Grapeseed, Rosehip Seed, Castor, and Avocado; gently liquified Coconut Oil, Shea, or Cocoa Butter can also work for creating thicker body care products.) Always test the diluted essential oil on a small patch of skin before applying more widely.
Maximum recommended dilution for adults: 4% (four drops per teaspoon of carrier oil). Use in moderation. Avoid in cases of ragweed allergy.
