Cape Chamomile Essential Oil
Our organically crafted Cape Chamomile Essential Oil is steam distilled from the tiny buds and beautiful, white flowers of the hearty Eriocephalus punctulatus plant growing wild along the mountain slopes of the South African coast. A distant relation to German Chamomile and Roman Chamomile, Cape Chamomile Essential Oil has a sweet, fruity, floral, earthy, herbaceous aroma.
Cape Chamomile Essential Oil has the most appealing aroma of all Chamomile varieties, and is used in high class perfumes. Cape Chamomile Oil's stunning clear blue color is due to the presence of nourishing Chamazulene, a chemical compound that gives the oil its anti-inflammatory and skin rejuvenation benefits.
