Moroccan Blue Chamomile is soothing and has a deep blue color unlike any other oil. Its scent is sweet, calming and deeply relaxing. The blue coloration is caused by a compound known as chamazulene which is known for its STRONG anti-inflammatory effects.

Blue Chamomile is a natural antihistamine which is effective for helping sooth hay fever, asthma and hives.
