Traditionally used in African Herbal Medicine to restore emotional balance, alleviate ear ache and lymph congestion, and improve circulation. Stimulates mental clarity, improves memory and relieves stress. Also known for its antidepressant properties, alleviates anxiety and addiction.
This soothing oil is frequently used in conjunction with cranial-sacral therapy, as it energetically opens and connects the lower and upper chakras, providing a deeply relaxing effect for physical, emotional and cellular healing.
Add a few drops to a steam bath to calm, restore and balance the lymphatic system. Inhale steam to relieve anxiety and addictive tendencies. Add a few drops into a tablespoon or a carrier oil of your choice (i.e. coconut oil) and massage into the affected area to encourage circulation and to relieve lymph congestion and inflammation.
Cape Chamomile is covered in a mass of white flower-heads in spring, and most distinctive when covered in fluffy white fruiting heads from late spring to early summer. Cape Chamomile is a member of the genus Eriocephalus, a woody, evergreen and highly aromatic shrub that looks quite unlike her namesake. Rather, she owes her name to her yield of azuline rich oil, which exhibits a magical royal blue hue.
