This delightful British German Chamomile Essential Oil has far and away the pleasantest aroma of any steam-distilled German Chamomile I have ever experienced.

A deep, deep, blue oil, it should be your first choice for treating inflamed, irritated skin and is most effective diluted in a carrier oil and applied to the skin, or used in a compress. Traditionally, German Chamomile is recommended for inflammation, but where this oil excels is for treating all sorts of dry, itchy flaky skin problems. Madeleine Kerkhof-Knapp Hayes, author/educator with a nursing background specializing in palliative care, says it is the "go-to" oil for sensitive, dry-itchy, allergenic skin.  (We normally use another of the "blue oils," Blue Tansy, for allergic skin reactions...but now we have another oil in our arsenal.) Kerkhof-Knapp Hayes also recommends German Chamomile as a healing agent for oncological ulcers from radiation. 

I know of nothing better to add to a blend for infected skin, acne, or to blend with Lavender for sunburn. I see very little use for it in a diffuser or lamp.

I put it in my grandbaby’s baby oil, along with Lavender to treat the occasional touch of diaper rash.

Both of the German Chamomile oils, this distilled one or the CO2 extracted, are recommended for treating any sort of rash or skin irritation. For granulation and tissue regeneration, I would recommend this steam-distilled oil.

While we traditionally haven't thought of German Chamomile as an oil for pain relief, Madeleine Kerkhof-Hayes says it is excellent in treating nerve pain, inflammed muscles and joints, swelling, and overworked tendons and ligaments.  She adds that for more effective pain relief, try combining it with the German Chamomile CO2 TOTAL Extract, as these two work well together.

She also says it is useful in blends for candida (yeast), not because it is antifungal (it isn't!), again, for the anti-inflammatory effect.
