  • How to choose Chamomile essential oil

    Chamomile essential oil is a rare and precious product, therefore toto identify a quality product it is good to take some aspects into consideration:

    • Chamomile essential oil has a percentage of yield on green matter very low therefore the price must be proportionate to the complexity of the processing ;

For this reason it is good to know that it is often adulterated with synthetic additions sometimes even starting from different essences such as Moroccan Chamomile; these products, manipulated or obtained in part from other plants, are not comparable to authentic chamomile essential oil and do not convey the same therapeutic properties.
