Dr. Nick Notes
Cape Chamomile essential oil is extracted from Eriocephalus punctulatus, a member of the Asteraceae family. Cape Chamomile is distant relative of German and Roman Chamomiles. This plant grows specifically along the coastal belt of the Western Cape Province, which is known as a biodiversity hotspot due to having over 10,000 botanical species unique to that region.
Cape Chamomile oil contains fruity esters like other chamomiles that contributes to its aroma, color, and relaxing effect on the nervous system. This has been an interested therapeutic extract to use for producing relaxing blends, reduce inflammation and aid with stress. Cape Chamomile oil is a great ally to combine with lavender and / or Cedar oil in a diffuser.
