Chamomile German has been used for centuries by the Germans as an oil that is "alles zutraut" or "capable of anything."
Widely used in the cosmetic industry, Chamomile German Essential Oil is used in creams, shampoos and conditioners for its hydrating, calming properties.
There is sometimes some confusion with using the term "Blue Chamomile" as it can apply to the German variety or Blue Tansy (tanacetum annuum). This is a good example of why the botanical names are important to be sure you're getting the essential oil you want.Uses of Chamomile German Essential Oil
