The scent of German Chamomile is deep, rich, tenacious, cocoa-like, and herbaceous. It is a middle-note scent with an odor intensity of about four out of five. Blending companions include florals, citrus, clary sage, geranium, and patchouli. For physical ailments, this oil can be used as a sedative or an anti-inflammatory; it soothes sensitive skin and promotes wound healing. German chamomile is aloso used to ease oversensitivity, tension, hysteria, and anxiety; it also invites emotional support. This is the common tea herb so classic to English children's stories. The presence of azulene, a component produced in the heat of distifiation, colors the essential oil a beautiful blue.
