Quick Overview

Roman chamomile essential oil is a wonderful and useful member of the chamomile family. There are several chamomiles on the market. German (Matricaria chamomilla) is dark blue as is Blue Tansy essential oil (Tanacetum annum), often referred to as a chamomile. Again care needs to be taken when looking at scientific names. There is also another wild chamomile or Moroccan Chamomile (Ormenis mixta). It is also not a chamomile and is not a replacement for chamomile. This oil is very identifiable as it has a light yellow color and is not blue at all.

Roman chamomile is insoluble in glycerine, but soluble in mineral oil. There is a yellow headed and white headed flower of Roman chamomile. The white produces a richer ester oil.
