The aroma is amazing! Floral, fruity and herbaceous. Even if you don't like steam distilled German Chamomile you have to try this one. The aroma is much different and more complex than the steam distilled and it is sweeter. I hear the C02 exceeds the steam distilled version for pain management so I will will be trying it for this should the need arise but it is also very relaxing.

This is by far my favorite chamomile! It smells closer to chamomile tea than the other chamomiles. The CO2 extraction method yields an oil with stronger anti-inflamatory qualities because of its high levels of matricin. It's my go to for any skin blends, and my secret ingredient for my bug bite blend, it healed a wasp sting in no time. Well worth the investment

I recently bought both Roman Chamomile and German Chamomile CO2. I must admit, I MUCH prefer this chamomile over the Roman. I love The Roman chamomile for it's sweet smell as it smells like you might expect concentrated apple extract to smell. It's SUPER sweet which is awesome for balancing blends with more earthy notes used for stress. THIS chamomile is much more balanced in smell. It is still sweet but more grounded and light, much like how a true chamomile tea would smell. I LOVE IT! It's definitely THICK like motor oil but with patience, it releases from the dropper no problem. This stuff is POTENT!!!! A lot goes a loonngg way!!!! (.1-.2 dilution for topical). After trying both, I can definitely say, Roman Chamomile has it's place on my favorites list for it's aromatic benefits but the C02 version of this oil is TOP NOTCH when it comes to soothing reddened and sensitive skin. I made a face serum with it and immediately noticed a difference!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

I ordered this because I just had orthoscopic knee surgery and was looking for some relief from the pain deep within my knee that the narcotic meds just mask temporarily. As soon as I got it in the mail I put 2 drops in a 10 ml EO bottle with jojoba oil and gently applied some between my stitches and felt almost complete relief from the pain in minutes. I also applied a drop of the blend to the sore spots in the muscles where I have been walking funny and experienced the same degree of relief. Then I also noticed that my skin in those areas wasn't itchy anymore. This is FAR more effective than the steam distilled oil and it's worth every penny. Next I'll be making an ointment for my granddaughter's severe diaper rash she is having. Prescription ointments haven't helped but I suspect this will. This is a MUST HAVE and I am anxious to add this to my chamomile infused herbal oil.
