Product Abstract: Also known as Cape Chamomile, This variety of Chamomile is a particularly fragrant, though, rare aromatic shrub indigenous to the mountain areas of South Africa. It is a small, white flowering shrub with fleshy gland-dotted leaves, which grows up to a meter in height. The word 'chamomile' comes from the Greek word chamomaela or ground apple, and has been in use for centuries. To the Saxons it was one of nine sacred herbs, and in Europe during the Middle Ages it was used as a strewing herb.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

I use this in a facial serum, and in a first aid salve I made for my hubby who always comes home with the odd cut or scrape from work. I used it on burns (from my wood stove because I'm clumsy at 3am filling the stove) and they are faded - and they all healed nicely. I honestly do love EO for their therepeutic properties, and find that this Chamomile in particular is awesome. Though it's part of my home stash, not part of my soaping stash.

Lots of therapeutic benefits from this and it smells so good. I wasn't sure if I liked the smell at first but now I love it and it works so well. It is strong so you don't need much.

This became one of my new favourite essential oils the instant I tried it. The smell is simply incredible. Warm and sweet, with end notes reminiscent of the smell of dry prairie grass in a field on a hot summer day. I will never be without this EO! I love it with Population Lavender and Helichrysum.

This chamomile is so sweet and fruity that you really don't have to use much at all. I used this in making shampoo and bath butters, it has a cheery yet calming aroma. The price is worth it as you use so little in your recipes.

I bought just a small bottle of this because of the price, but am very pleased with it. A very little goes a long way. I use this in creams and lotions in combination with Lavender for a very gentle healing and soothing product. The Chamomile , even with just a drop, holds it's own against the Lavender, adding a depth and complexity of fragrance to the overall product.

Cape Chamomile is not a true Chamomile; however, the aroma is delightful. It 's worth the money of a sample, you will fall in love with this specimen. Now, do not expect a chamomile oil at all. It does not contain significant amounts of azulene or chamazulene, which means that this is not an ess. oil for skin problem. It contains high % of esters, which means that it could help with stress, anxiety, insomnia and even depression. Use it in a diffuser, as your personal perfume or in the bathtub. For insomnia, put some on the pillowcase or on a piece of cotton placed swhere you can inhale the aroma when you need some sleep .

This transparent blue oil is fantastic. The smell is strong. It is not necessary to use a lot. The price is pretty light for such a product. I will mostly use it into creams because ot its calming and anti irritating properties. L'huile est d'un bleu foncé transparent. L'odeur est très forte et balsamique. Je vais surtout l'utiliser (avec parcimonie) dans mes crèmes à cause de ses vertus calmantes et contre l'irritation. Super produit.

I add a few drops to my bath with a splash of rose water. It makes my skin super soft and smells wonderful! I have really fair sensitive skin and have found that this chamomile oil works wonders to keep skin soft and even.
