Blue Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) essential oil benefits
Calming and cooling, Blue chamomile or German Chamomile essential oil is among the most potent anti-inflammatory botanical extracts used in natural medicine, natural skincare and aromatherapy. German chamomile oil is the perfect active ingredient to improve dry, inflamed or irritated skin.
German chamomile’s Latin name is Matricaria from matrix, womb; this reflects that this plant has been in use for a long time to balance the natural phases of the menstruation and menopause. Because of its high content of Azulene it is stronger than Roman chamomile; it is a very effective anti-inflammatory and calming oil also for muscle and the digestive system. Works perfectly with very irritated skin.
On the emotional side, German chamomile is very soothing and balancing and it is used to treat insomnia, with the unique benefit of gently sedating without depressive effects.
