Chamomile German is an inky-blue blue liquid with a strong earthy, dank yet sweet aroma.

It is a small daisy-like plant that grows abundantly in Europe and is harvested mainly in France.  Its appearance is very similar to corn chamomile but can be distinguished from it because the latter is scentless. Native to Europe and north and west Asia, naturalized in North America and Australia. It is cultivated extensively in Hungary and eastern Europe where the oil is produced. It is no longer grown in Germany despite its name.
