Chamomile Essential Oil
If you research Chamomile essential oil on the web you’ll find a lot of sources state that English or Roman Chamomile is straw coloured while German chamomile is blue. As you can see from the movie our oil is also blue.  When I took our oil over to Kent last week to be cleaned I dried I asked those who know what colour English Chamomile essential oil should be. The blue colour is due to the presence of chamazulene in  the oil and although German Chamomile has a higher concentration and is therefore deep blue in colour, it is also present in English Chamomile giving it a lighter, translucent blue colour.
The blue colour fades with age, the oil reverting to a straw colour over time, so a blue English Chamomile oil is usually younger than one that isn’t!

How blue is your oil?
