What is the difference between German and Roman chamomile?
- German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) is much higher in constituents that give it a distinct blue color and notably relaxing aroma. Blue chamomile comes from the same species (M. recutita) but is grown in Spain and has a slightly different chemistry.
- Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis) is higher in ester content, which is great for the skin. It has a softer and more fruity scent.
Specific Safety Information: Not for internal use. Essential oils maybe contraindicated with certain medical conditions. Avoid using chamomile essential oil if you are allergic to ragweed, or other plants in the Asteraceae family. Ask your doctor if you have any questions before use.
