Chamomile, German (matricaria recutita)
This herb is native to Europe. and the dried flower is used for essential oil distillation. Often referred to as Blue Chamomile due to its colour, - this is caused by the chamazulene in this oil that is formed during distillation by steam. Chamazulene has been shown in many studies to give German Chamomile its excellent anti-inflammatory properties (along with other effective components of the oil). It can therefore be helpful for muscular aches and arthritic pains
I have used it much in therapy and found it especially good for sciatica, arthritic conditions and in allergic conditions. It can also be helpful in the treatment of digestive issues such as indigestion & colic as it has anti-spasmodic properties. It is gentle on skin and good for treating wounds and irritated skin. Also for urinary problems such as cystitis. Its scent is not entirely pleasing in my opinion, but only a small amount is required in treatment - blend it with lavender for wounds and with lavender and/or black pepper for inflammation, and with bergamot, juniper and/orsandalwood for urinary issues.
