Interesting Blue Chamomile Oil Information
Camomile's genus name, "matricaria," is derived from the Latin word "matrix," or womb, which refers to chamomile's widespread traditional use by women for gynecological health. The common name, "chamomile," is derived from the Greek word "chamos," or ground, which is a reference to this plant's low growing habit, and from "melos," or apple, for the sweet apple-like scent of its blossoms.
Though they share some therapeutic properties, German, Roman and Moroccan chamomile oil are all different species. German, or blue chamomile, has a higher azulene content than its Roman counterpart. This constituent also gives the oil its characteristic blue color. The azulene is not present in the fresh flower itself but is produced during the process of distillation.
Chamomile is often called "the plant doctor" by botanists due to its ability to assist in the health and growth of other essential oil producing plants, especially those from the mint family.
Blue chamomile was highly regarded by ancient Egyptians for its healing properties, was and is widely employed in Latin American folk medicine, and is today one of the most commonly used healing herbs, particularly in the form of teas and tinctures, in the West.
