Description of Chamomile Oil Italian
Often simply referred to as "Chamomile Oil," Chamomile Oil Italian is steam-distilled from the florets of the Anthemis nobilis plant, which is closely related to the "true Chamomile" mentioned in our page on Chamomile Oil Blue. This oil is cultivated throughout Italy and has a pale blue coloration, with a sweet and herbaceous odor that bears a slight resemblance to tealeaf. Its warm, fruity nuance is incredibly diffusive but not very tenacious when compared to other Chamomile types. This makes it best used as a trace additive within fragrance, adding a fresh and natural depth to ingredients such as bergamot, jasmin, and neroli. Italian Chamomile Oil is also used in a variety of flavor applications, amplifying the fruity character of apple, pear, peach, apricot, mango, and passionfruit profiles.
