Camomile essential oil information

Roman Camomile essential oil is produced from Anthemis nobilis (Chamaemelum nobile) of the family species Asteraceae, formerly placed in the Compositae family and also known as English camomile, sweet camomile and garden camomile.

On this page

 

German camomile essential oil is from Matricaria chamomilla (M. recutica) of the same family and also known by the names of blue camomile, Hungarian camomile and single camomile.

Both Roman and German camomile have excellent calming properties, but Roman camomile is more effective for irritation, impatience and feeling disagreeable, and has great value in treating PMS and other menstrual and menopausal problems, while German camomile again is super effective on the skin, not only to sooth and calm, but to heal and to regenerate tissue.

Oil properties

The Roman camomile essential oil has a sweet, apple-like fragrance and is very light clear blue in color with a watery viscosity, while the German camomile oil is sweet and straw-like in fragrance, is dark blue in color and its viscosity is medium.

Origin of Roman and German camomile oil

German camomile oil is mostly cultivated in Hungary, Egypt, Eastern Europe and France, while Roman camomile is cultivated in Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Morocco and France.

Roman camomile is a small perennial herb with a hairy stem and feathery pinnate leaves, daisy like white flowers (larger than those of German camomile) and grows about 25 cm high, while German camomile grows about 60 cm high and has a hairless branching stem with delicate feathery leaves and simple daisy like white flowers on single stems.

To the Egyptians it was a herb dedicated to the sun, used to cure fevers, and to the moon, for its cooling ability. It was also recognized as a soother of nervous complaints and used in shampoos, cosmetics and perfumes.

German camomile contains azulene, a powerful anti-inflammatory agent and this blue crystal is not actually present in the plant, but forms in the oil. Only a small quantity is needed to be effective.
