Precious Oil Chamomile Blue
Ingredients: 100% pure essential oil
Chamomile Blue (Matricaria Chamomilla) is a great oil to keep on hand for relieving minor skin irritations, cuts, bruises, burns and sprains. Be sure to dilute in a carrier oil or scentless base before applying to the skin.
In addition to being great for the skin Chamomile is really soothing. When added to an aroma diffuser the sweet and herbaceous aroma can help clear the mind, let you unwind and escape from the stresses life can bring.
Chamomile Blue (a.k.a. German Chamomile) supports the body's natural response to irritation and injury, and healthy skin. By helping to clear the mind, it helps create patience as it relaxes and unwinds. It is an annual native of Europe and western Asia. Growing between one to two feet high, the many terminal flower heads are in a comb-like formation and are about one-half to five-eighths of an inch in diameter. The word chamomile is derived from Greek roots: chamos (ground) and melos (apple) refer to the fact that the plant grows low to the ground and that the fresh blooms have a pleasing apple-scent. As a popular remedy, it may be thought of as the European counterpart of ginseng. It has been used for centuries in teas as a mild, relaxing sleep aid, and a treatment for fevers, colds, and stomach ailments. It can also be used as an anti-inflammatory.
