A symbol of calmness, the German Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) is also known as Blue Chamomile, or Wild Chamomile. Originally found in Eurasia and North Africa, this aromatic annual plant is now grown on all continents. Cultivated for its therapeutic and cosmetic virtues, the German Chamomile was treasured by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. Its name stems from the Greek "chamos" (soil, earth) and "mêlon" (apple), since the plant grows close to the ground and the scent of its flowers is similar to the smell of apples, as well as from the Latin "matrix" (female), since it was used, among other purposes, for deliveries during Antiquity. Much popular for their calming and digestive properties, the Matricaria chamomile flowers, which are white with a yellow heart, are traditionally used in herbal teas.
In the cosmetics field, the German Chamomile hydrosol is firstly renowned for its soothing power. Its calming effect makes it a true and irresistible beauty and wellness ally for dry, sensitive, delicate and irritated skins, as well as for those of children. Rich in antioxidants, this hydrosol can be incorporated into soothing creams and body milks or applied as an alleviating care for the face and for the eyes. It can also be included in a mister for diffusion in a room to enhance your well-being by creating a relaxing, calm and peaceful atmosphere.
