Steam distilled from the flowers of the chamomile plant, the German variety of this oil is deep blue in color due to a high azulene content. Widely lauded for its skin healing properties, it exhibits a strong, warm middle note with a sweet and herbaceous scent. German chamomile essential oil can be used topically as an anti-inflammatory or diffused for its calming effect. Its sweet, apple-like aroma has a long history of traditional uses in both culinary and medicinal applications. Promotes a peaceful sense of calm and wellbeing when inhaled directly, rubbed on tired, achy muscles or added to a warm bath for instant relaxation.

On the recommendation of the International Federation of Aromatherapists, TruGardens does not endorse taking essential oils internally unless specifically directed and prescribed by a qualified healthcare practitioner who is also trained in clinical aromatherapy. Avoid using during pregnancy, or if you suspect you might be pregnant, except on the advice of a qualified practitioner. Store all essential oil products safely out of reach of children. Essential oils are potent, and a little bit goes a long way. Do not use essential oils undiluted directly on the skin as they can cause irritation. Keep away from children, and do not apply near the eyes, mucous membranes, sensitive or broken skin.
