Of Interest: Blue chamomile oil has a higher azulene content then Roman chamomile oil. This constituent also gives the oil its characteristic blue color. The azulene is not present in the fresh flower but is produced during the process of distillation.
Chamomile Differences -Blue Chamomile essential oil has a high content of azulene, the active organic compound of chamomile, which bears a blue color. Azulene has anti-inflammatory, skin healing properties. This oil is most suitable as an ingredient for skin care products. Blue chamomile is derived from the German chamomile plant, which is an upright growing annual. There are German chamomile plants that were breed for a high azulene content to use in the manufacturing of medicinal chamomile products.
-Roman Chamomile essential oil is used for its skin healing properties in the manufacturing of body care products, as well as for aromatherapy. It has a very pleasant, soothing, apple-like aroma. The Roman chamomile plant is a low growing, perennial ground cover.
-Moroccan Chamomile essential oil is not from a true chamomile plant. It is used mainly in perfume blends, and for aromatherapy. The plant is an annual that grows in the Mediterranean and in the Middle East. This is a product new to the market, it does not have a long history of traditional uses like true chamomile.

We are testing the new calculated shipping option. The hope is that this will make the shipping quote much more accurate, estimating the size and weight of the box vs. cost per item. We will refund any shipping charge that is over $1.00 of the actual shipping cost. Please contact me if the cost of shipping does not seem right to you so that I can check on it and if necessary fix it for you. Again, we do refund any overcharges more than $1.00. We always try to use a flat rate box, purchasing more than one item at a time usually adds value to your order.
The photographs that I use for my fragrance and essential oils are stock photos. I am not a very good photographer and to get a good photo of the over 600 different oils I sell would take me the rest of my life. I do however give a good description of the actual packaging that you will receive them in.
About Fragrance Oils
Fragrance oils are commonly used to create body lotions, candles, and soaps, as well as perfumes and mists. When well-sealed and stored out of direct sunlight, a fragrance oil can have a shelf life of about one year, though many will last longer.

Please make payment upon purchase, or you can pay with a check or money order, but please be aware that this slows shipment down considerably.
