Our Cape Chamomile Essential Oil is a rare and exquisite chamomile essential oil coming from a small artisan grower/distiller in South Africa. In Aromatherapy this is an important oil for anxiety, depression and headache treatment.
Cape Chamomile Essential Oil is also great choice for people dealing with irritability, restlessness, insomnia, migraine, opthalmia and tinnitus. And for children, it is used for tantrums.
This oil has the most appealing aroma of all Chamomile varieties, and is used in high class perfumes. It is powerfully berry-apple like, sweet, floral and fresh smelling.
A small amount goes a long way. The gorgeous clear blue color of Cape Chamomile Essential Oil is due to the presence of nourishing chamazulene, a chemical compound that gives the oil its anti-inflammatory and skin rejuvenation benefits.

makes a very nice impression.
