Chamomile (Blue) essential oil, also known as German Chamomile, is one of the best aromatherapy oils for treating inflammation. It has a high 'chamazulene' content, an active organic compound which gives it its deep, inky-blue colour. Chamazulene has powerful anti-inflammatory and skin healing properties which makes Chamomile oil particularly useful in treating aches and pains and allergic skin conditions. Mills (1991) also states that the compound has antispasmodic properties and can help reduce histamine-related reactions such as Hay Fever and some types of asthma and eczema.

German Chamomile is an annual herb with daisy-like flowers (the essential oil is steam-distilled from the flower heads). It costs more to grow and harvest which is why Chamomile (Blue) essential oil is more expensive than Roman ChamomileBoth oils however have very similar properties.
