Early morning petal plucking results in the best distillations with abundant matricine, which is fuller in flowers at dawn. High quantities of soothing sesquiterpenes impart this distillation with a deep oceanic blue color and express compelling cooling and calming properties. This blue-hue essence is a champion ingredient for fortifying facials and benevolent body serums.
Consecrated by many a midwife, Matricaria, from the Latin ‘matrix’ (womb) and ‘mater’ (mother) is appreciated as a birth tonic.
While both Roman Chamomile and German Chamomile are champions for skincare, they are distinct in color and scent. The gossamer-gold liquid of Roman Chamomile is sunshine on a summer day with comforting notes of honeyed hay. While German Chamomile’s oceanic blue hue offers an unflappable-floral that is here to keep your skin and your spirit calm, cool, and clear with its nexus-nectar.
