Blue Chamomile Pure Essential Oil
Blue Chamomile Essential Oil relaxes the mind, body, and spirit.
Blue Chamomile (Matricaria recutita), also referred to as chamomile, German, Hungarian or wild chamomile is an annual plant of the composite family Asteraceae. Blue Chamomile is a versatile herb – known in German as “alles zutraut,” which translates as “capable of anything.” Blue chamomile has a number of healing capabilities because of its high levels of chamazulene, an anti-inflammatory compound that is only found in chamomile essential oil.

Some of its benefits include:
- Stress and anxiety alleviation
