German Chamomile Hydrosol

German Chamomile Hydrosol

Depending on the source, I've enjoyed some beautifully smelling German Chamomile Hydrosols that smells fresh, sweet and especially pleasant. I've also experienced a few lesser-pleasant smelling ones that are harsher in aroma. German Chamomile Hydrosol is often used primarily for its therapeutic, not aromatic, properties. If the aroma is a significant factor in your decision to use German Chamomile Hydrosol, I recommend purchasing a small quantity before purchasing in larger sizes. Roman Chamomile Hydrosol is an alternative as Roman Chamomile Hydrosol is typically quite pleasant aromatically.

Botanical Name

Matricaria recutita

Aromatic Strength

Medium (Depending on source)

Shelf Life

Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications

Suzanne Catty confirms that German Chamomile Hydrosol is antibacterial and is a noteworthy anti-inflammatory (as is German Chamomile Essential Oil). She reports that German Chamomile Hydrosol is useful for burns, blisters, rashes, itching, foot odor, and some instances of eczema and psoriasis. When used in a compress, she recommends it for hemorrhoids, varicose veins, thread veins and spider veins. Emotionally, Catty mentions that it is calming and acts as a sedative. [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 108.]

Jeanne Rose also mentions that the anti-inflammatory properties of German Chamomile helps to calm irritated skin. [Jeanne Rose, 375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols (Berkeley, CA: Frog, Ltd, 1999), 170.]
