MOROCCAN CHAMOMILE ESSENTIAL OIL
Size: 5 ml. Violet glass bottle
Distillation: Steam distilled at low temperature
Botanical name: Ormenis multicaulis
Note: Not a true chamomile, but often confused with Roman or English Chamomile (Anthemis nobilis) and German Chamomile (Matricaria recutita). Ormenis multicaulis is also known as Tansy (not to be confused with Blue Tansy), and Wild Chamomile.
Wild Chamomile has a fresh and herbaceous top note. The middle note is sweet, with a rich and balsamic undertone, while the dry out note is sweet, dry, herbaceous and very tenacious.
In natural perfumery it would be a great choice to use for chypre, fougere, citrus colognes, herbaceous perfumes, amber bases, and floral-herbaceous creations.
