We use the German variety of chamomile known as chamomile blue and scented mayweed.
It has sweetly scented daisy-like flowers, which come out in early summer through to autumn. These flowers are collected when first fully open and used in a variety of ways.
The oil is extracted from the flower through steam distillation. It is strikingly blue due to chamazulene, its main constituent. The vibrancy of the blue hue is an indicator of the oil’s freshness - the older the oil, the greener it becomes.
