This is Matricaria recutita, commonly known as German Chamomile, but because it is cultivated in Nepal, its chemistry is different enough for us to make it stand alone as the third type of chamomile that we offer. This is a greenish blue color.
Over 75% sesquiterpenes, our Nepal Chamomile offers excellent anti-inflammatory and cooling properties. It can also be helpful for allergy relief. It is our first choice for any skin issue that involves redness, heat, or itching.
