This German Chamomile, produced by the new High Pressure Carbon Dioxide method, is very different from the traditional steam-distilled blue oil. Since a CO2 extraction contains all the oil soluble parts of the plant, the oil is much thicker, with specks of what appear to be plant matter in it. It also does not turn blue as expected. Picture a deep, dark green or brownish green semi-solid, pasty texture. A difficult oil to work with, but well worth the trouble.

The CO2 extracted oil has even stronger anti-inflammatory qualities than the steam distilled EO, and has a more natural, fruity odor. I do know that it doesn’t take over the scent of my skin care blends the way traditional Matricaria does. Please note, the producer of this amazing extract recommends using it at a level of 0.1 to 0.3%. It is amazingly effective at this low dilution.

A must for treating rosacea and/or couperose, an essential ingredient in our anti acne blend, also you might blend with Lavender for treating sun and wind burn.

The extreme effectiveness of this CO2 extraction comes from its high level of matricin (the precursor of the deep blue chamazulene that gives the traditional steam distilled blue oils their efficacy). Research has shown that the matricin is far more active than the chamazulene. This specific CO2 extract is also very high in the sesquiterpine alcohol alpha-bisabolol, another powerful anti-inflammatory agent.

We have also had success treating skin ulcers that seemed to resist every other treatment, by diluting German Chamomile CO2 in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil and applying several times daily.

Please note, this marvelously healing extract is difficult to work with. It is extraordinarily thick and viscous because of the plant waxes contained in the CO2 Total. To blend it in a carrier both the CO2 and the carrier oil must be heated to body temperature. We strongly recommend purchase of our German Chamomile CO2, 10% Dilution for your ease of use.

SHELF LIFE: Approximately 2 to 3 years after you open the bottle.  Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.

  • 5 A truly wonderful chamomile experience

    Posted by Charlie from Florida on 02/16/2019

    Like the description states the undiluted extract is VERY thick and MUST be warned to dilute. This extract has one of the best anti-inflammatory effects on skin I’ve seen. I’ve also seen it work very well in blends for sore muscles/bruises. The scent is wonderful! I’m typically not a fan of the smell of chamomile, but this one is really nice. It smells like rich and spicy apple pie and flowers. Way more floral and fruity than herbaceous. Emotionally it’s calming and relaxing. Great for settling in for the night or in a bath with some Sumatran Patchouli and Wild High Altitude Lavender.
