About the Oil

Cape Chamomile essential oil is native to South Africa. This somewhat rare aromatic has impressive therapeutic properties and a lovely, fruity and floral aroma to go with them.

Cape Chamomile Essential Oil may be the *ultimate* stress reliever! It is extraordinarily high in esters, over 50%, which account for its sweet fruity aroma. Many of the esters seem to be unique to this delightful oil. It is also high in Linalyl Acetate. We believe its aroma will be actually more widely appreciated than either of the other classic Chamomile essential oils

The oil's light blue color instantly reveals the presence of chamazuline compounds, the same that are found in German Chamomile and Blue Tansy. This makes it an excellent ingredient in any formulation to reduce irritation, inflammation or swelling of the skin.
