German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) flower extract has truly stood the test of time, with over 2,000 years of documented medical use. The ancient Egyptians are known to have used ‘chamomile’ as incense, for skin care, medicine and as a incense, good-luck charm. In fact, ancient Egyptians were so impressed with its curative properties for the ‘ague’ (acute fever), that they dedicated it to their sun god Ra.

Soothing, comforting and balancing, German chamomile is a gentle sedative that is believed to calm the emotions. It may be exceptionally helpful to people who tend to be over-anxious or drive themselves too hard. It is especially useful for sensitive, puffy, or inflamed skin conditions. It penetrates deep into the layers of the skin with potent anti-inflammatory action, restoring and soothing irritated skin and other chronic skin conditions.
