German
Chamomile

(aka Blue Chamomile)
Matricaria recutita

Plant Origin:
Europe, particularly Central Europe and Northern Europe.

“German chamomile grows about 60 cm (2 feet) high and has a hairless branching stem, with delicate feathery leaves and simple daisy like white flowers on single stems. It has smaller flowers but grows taller than Roman Chamomile.” 1

Largest Producing Countries:
Bosnia, Spain, France and Hungary

Plant parts used:
Steam distillation of the flowers.

Unusual facts:
“’Matricaria’ comes from the Latin word matrix, meaning ‘womb’, reflecting the herb’s age-old use as a remedy for treating menstrual disorders.” 2

The deep blue color comes from the organic compound azulene, the main active constituent that forms blue crystals. Azulene is highly anti-inflammatory and fever-reducing. So German Chamomile is often used in skin preparations for irritated, sensitive, and mature skin, and in pharmaceutical preparations to reduce fevers.

Specific Therapeutic Properties of Essential Oils

Aromatherapy is one of the fastest growing industries in the new millennium, gaining wide popularity in the United States. From scented candles to fragrant massage oils to hydrating skin care to scented Aroma is a powerful healing toolbath & shower products,  aromatherapy has captured the attention of the American public.

CAUTION: Please BEWARE of products with scents that are laboratory made! Most grocery store products are not made of 100% pure essential oils or extracts. These products have no healing properties at all. In fact, they can potentially harm your health. READ THE LABEL!!!

Essential oils have both a physiological and psychological affect. They have the potential to detoxify and heal the physical body, as well as release and balance thoughts and emotions, and open pathways to higher consciousness.

Physically, essential oils have the potential to alter bodily processes, oxygenate the brain, and restore normal functioning of the physical body. Most directly affect the nervous system and are antibacterial, and many are antiviral, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, immune-supportive, and more. And yet they also have an effect on the mind, emotions, and spirit, which interestingly is the direct result of their ability to physiologically change the central nervous system and key brain centers.

Subtle Aromatherapy is intended to primarily affect the mental, emotion and spiritual aspects of the individual, addressing issues such as healthy lifestyle, stress relief, promoting relaxation, mental focus & clarity, fatigue, depression, meditation and exploring higher states of consciousness, however, physical bodily systems are also affected. Only essential oils of the purest, highest frequency can be used and these 100% pure essential oils are called 100% pure THERAPEUTIC-GRADE essential oils.


What is Subtle Aromatherapy?

Scent of flower petalsAh... a fragrance washes over you and suddenly you are transported back in time to a treasured moment from long ago.... That is the beauty, the essence, the miracle of subtle aromatherapy.

Organic aromas such as freshly baked bread, a newly mown lawn, the salty sea, or the sweet smell of the earth after a rainfall fill our everyday lives. This is the sensory world of smell, which is one of the ways our being gives and receives information.

Aromas have the power to alter our physical body's chemistry, our emotions, our thoughts and mental outlook, and our sense of spiritual connection.

The JOURNEY that aromas take through our body

Aromas are received through the olfactory system of the nose. The olfactory membranes under the bony covering of the nose contain hundreds of millions of extremely sensitive nerve endings for receiving and processing aromScent affects the limbic mid-brain, the center of emotions & memoriesas. Microscopic vaporized oil particles from every organic substance enter the nose and float along specialized cilia which differentiate each chemical and respond in kind by generating a unique code of nervous impulses which are received by the central nervous system. These impulses then begin a long but momentary journey.

First they are carried to the Limbic Mid-Brain (the center of our emotions and memories), and then to the base of the brain, which is the pathway between the spine and higher brain centers, passing between the pituitary gland (switchboard of the endocrine system and ALL emotions) and the pineal gland (regulates our biological clock and stimulates our inner vision) and then to a little known part of the brain called the amygdala, which stores and releases emotional trauma. Finally the impulses complete their journey by entering our gustatory center of the brain, which is our taste perception. It is no wonder odors, smells and aromas create such a biological and emotional response!

Chemistry of Cinnamon BarkThe molecular chemistry of the essence of a plant, its essential oil, is diverse and complicated. Each chemical constituent creates a singular effect. For example, oils containing sesquiterpenes, such as Frankincense and Sandalwood, are able to pass the blood brain barrier in the brain, allowing oxygenation of the pineal and pituitary glands.

"In studies conducted at Vienna and Berlin Universities, researchers found that sesquiterpenes in the essential oils of sandalwood and frankincense can increase levels of oxygen in the brain by up to 28% (Nasel, 1992). Such an increase in brain oxygen may lead to a heightened level of activity in the hypothalamus and limbic system of the brain, which can have dramatic effects not only on emotions, learning, and attitude, but also on many physical processes of the body, such as immune function, hormone balance, and energy levels. High levels of sesquiterpenes also occur in melissa (lemon balm), myrrh, and clove oil." From "Essential Oils Desk Reference".Essential Oils blended together are synergistic

When a combination or blend of essential oils is created, the many constituents unique to each plant’s essential oil is powerful indeed. With a essential oil blend, one must fully understand not only the effects of each singular essential oil, but also the resulting effect of the synergy of the combination of essential oils. The gift of essential oil blends is that a unique combination of essential oils can be made specifically for one's needs.

When applied to the skin, the plant’s life-force is absorbed into the body’s fluEssential oils on the feet travel throughout entire body in 10-15 minutes!id systems which eventually circulates through the organ and glandular systems of the body and eventually through all fluids and tissues of the body. The foot is the most porous of all the body's skin. Rub a clove of garlic on the bottom of your foot and in about 5 minutes you will taste it in your mouth and “feel” the sensation in your nose! Essential oils applied to the feet, the most porous part of the body, travel throughout the body and affect the cells, including the hair, in just 10-20 minutes.

New research suggests that because the olfactory nerves are similar to other nerves in the body, they may have the ability to form and transmit intelligent codes of information to all other parts of the body via neurotransmitter chemicals in the body. Recent research suggests that intelligence occurs not only in the brain but inside neurotransmitters.Essential oils on the feet travel throughout entire body in 10-15 minutes!

inhaling an essential oilThere is no doubt that essential oils through inhalation and the direct application to the skin affect not only the physical body, but the mind, emotions and spirit. The potential for healing is enormous with therapeutic-grade essential oils. We are only beginning to understand their power and effectiveness.

After reading all the Usage & Cautions of essential oils, I invite you to explore and experiment with the oils. Remember, go slow, inhaling or applying only one or two oils at a time. Some oils cannot be applied "neat" to the skin, which means undiluted. Savor each oil and give each one time for its voice to speak to you. Soon, you will know the oils intimately. Enjoy!
