Description: The Chamomile German plant is an annual, reaching up to 60cm in height. From May to August it flowers, sporting top-heavy flower heads with a fragrance similar to apples.
Color: Bluish green to deep blue liquid.
Common Uses: German Chamomile contains azulene, which gives the oil a deep blue color. This blue crystal is not actually present in the plant itself, but forms in the oil. The quality of the oil is generally graded by its azulene content, and a good quality oil will contain between 4.5 - 5%.
Aromatic Scent: Chamomile German Essential Oil has a sweet scent like apples and straw.
History: Derived from the Greek word meaning 'ground apple', it was a plant of many uses. To the Egyptians it was a herb dedicated to both the sun and moon, and was considered to have many healing abilities.
Cautions: May trigger a reaction in those who suffer from hay fever or have allergies to grass; a skin test should be performed before use. It should be avoided during pregnancy.

Rating: Wow! This oil is amazingly blue in color. Very fragrant, a mix between sweetness and fragrant hay. This has been a wonderful inclusion to scenting bath teas, balms, hair serums, and I am sure more to come!

Rating: Has a hay-like quality - a bit dirty and more herbal than floral

Rating: Very good and strong scent even as a dilution! Am very impressed by the quality of NDA's oils and this is no exception. Some others like the Rose Maroc seem to be much more diluted as the scent is rather weak but this one is lovely! Keep up the good work!

Rating: I didn't know what to expect with the German Chamomile, purchased this dilution based on Jacqueline and Lisa Marie's reviews. This oil does not disappoint, it doesn't have the chamomile tea scent more medicinal but once mixed with other nourishing e.o's or dilutions, like Neroli, you hardly smell it but you get the great benefits of the azulene content.

Rating: After using the Oil Cleansing Method on my face for a few months, my formerly oily skin started drying out and becoming flaky, red, bumpy, and really sensitive, especially around the nose, chin, and forehead. Though I stopped the OCM and switched to a cream cleanser and gentle facial oils, the condition didn't improve and I worried that I'd triggered a rosacea reaction due to the daily steaming of OCM - my skin was slightly sensitive to begin with, and all the symptoms fit. Anyway, after reading the reviews here I ordered this oil and have been using it as-is on my skin at bedtime for almost a week now. It's too early to call it a cure, but I like what I'm seeing. My face feels soothed and the skin looks much smoother. The flakes and bumps are already barely there, and lessen every day. Thanks for this awesome oil, and thanks Lisa Maria for the informative review!

Rating: This oil is great. Like the rose(damask) oil, it really hydrates well. I have dry skin and this combined with the rose oil has made a huge difference in my t-zone area. I love the scent and they mix well with other EOs.

Rating: I used this oil to help with my rosacea. I just started it one week ago so I will keep you all posted BUT I must say, people jave not stopped commenting on my radiant skin, how INCREDIBLY soft it is when they give me a hello peck on the cheek, how amazing my skin looks and all that I have done differently this week is add the German Chamomile dilute, I feel like my skin is silk. I just turned 43 this week, and I have the skin of a well maintained 20 year old. I JUST LOVE IT!!!!!!!! Awesome. No greasyness no pimples, just soft luminious skin. Thank you NDA!!! Great Price as always and exceptional quality!

Rating: So blue, I haven't smelled the true EO so I am going to assume that this is dead on. Its less floral then I imagined but I love it.
By:Chloe, Waterloo, Iowa Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Jun-2009
Rating: This is exactly what I've been looking for. I LOVE IT. The fragrance is
very strong (at a 3% dilution) and the blue color so deep. I've been
very happy with my orders from NDA. Thanks for another great product
I'll be ordering this again real soon.

Rating: i finally used it the other day in my acne facial oil blend. i love it! the dilution makes it easier for me because i don't have to dilute it down too much. i like its blue color. we'll see how it is going to help with my acne :)
By:Julie, Rochester, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Jun-2008
Rating: I was concerned that a 3% dilution wouldn't be strong enough, but it's perfect for the German chamomile. It still has the lovely blue color, and the scent is full without being overpowering.
By:Judith, Reisterstown, Maryland Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Mar-2006
Rating: I adore the 3% dilutions. They are much stronger than I had anticipated and reasonably priced. A great way to include otherwise unaffordable scents in my formulations. I would love to see a larger variety offered in the future.
By:Karen, Spring Hill, Florida Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Dec-2007
Rating: Are you sure you only put 3% of the oil in this dilution? I think you put more since the smell is so wonderful and strong and this product is really quite blue in color as well. Your price is fantastic and it allows me to use this precious oil in my facial care products when in the past I thought I couldn't afford it. Thanks for this awesome product!
