Also known as Blue Chamomile, German Chamomile is a fragrant plant native to southern and eastern Europe. Its characteristic, sweet straw-like scent is reputedly very soothing, while the plant itself has been used in medicine and aromatherapy to help relieve issues including anxiety, insomnia, indigestion, and irritable bowel syndrome.
At anatomē, we use German Chamomile for sleep, including it in many of our sleep oils thanks to its calming properties and gentle aroma. Many of our sleep oil blends are centred with German Chamomile as its proven effect on the GABA neurotransmitter enables the body and mind to relax and fall asleep, helping the brain to achieve full sleep cycles and making you sleep soundly throughout the night.
Particularly useful for relieving sleeplessness and anxiety symptoms, German Chamomile is a key ingredient in our sleep oil for insomnia, and works with other sleep supporting botanicals to calm, soothe, and gently induce sleep that is restorative and restful.
