German Chamomile Essential Oil, also known as Blue Chamomile, is best known for its ability to support skin, muscles, and joints. This beautiful, blue oil gets its color from chamazulene (some sites have been known to refer to this as azulene), which isn't in the plant before distillation but is what's called an "artifact" or distillation ~ meaning that it is created due to the process of distilling the plant.
Luckily, it's like other, powerful oils (helichrysum off the top of my head). A little bit does wonders. For me, this is good as the scent is overwhelming on its own, but a beautiful addition to blends. It would be an excellent addition to blends that are created to help occasional muscle and joint soreness, seasonal threats, minor scrapes, and for reducing the appearance of scars. It also seems to be a great addition to blends that calm and balance or to help nighttime relaxation.
Personally, I've used german chamomile most on my achy jaw (on the outside and properly diluted) while I waited to get in to see my dentist and in a skin blend when I had a horrific amount of peppermint spill all over my feet (don't let that happen, folks!) . . . the blend we used calmed my irritated, burning skin immediately and made me fall in love with this oil. Note: german chamomile essential oil was not the only oil in that blend and it was only applied after a shower did nothing to calm the skin.
