How to Heal Sensitive Skin with German Chamomile

Are you looking for relief to soothe your sensitive skin? If you’re experiencing redness or inflammation, you might consider German chamomile, a natural solution. In this article, you’ll learn how to heal sensitive skin with German chamomile essential oil. 

How to Heal Sensitive Skin with German Chamomile

Growing up, I always had sensitive skin.  I struggled using any products that contained a fragrance.  I usually broke out in hives when something strongly scented was applied to my skin.  It was even hard trying to find the right skincare routine that worked for me. 

Not to mention experiencing four seasons while living on the east coast was not the best for my skin either. The harsh winters dried out my skin while the hot summers made my skin oily.  I finally found a moisturizer that balanced my skin when I moved to California this year.  This was the Herbe Sois Calming Moisturizer, which contains German Chamomile essential oil. When I discovered Herbe Sois Calming Moisturizer, it brought relief to my skin.   

Now, what is German Chamomile? German Chamomile, also known as Matricaria recutita2, is a herbaceous plant that contains polyphenols and phytochemicals. It has powerful antioxidant properties. These properties can help protect against free radical damage in the skin and help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.1 

German Chamomile is from southern and western Europe as well as northern and western Asia.  German Chamomile should not be confused with Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile), a perennial plant.  German Chamomile can also be taken orally as a tea.2

Benefits of German Chamomile

Let’s get into what German Chamomile does for the skin! This wonderful plant provides benefits such as helping with: 

  • Inflammation & Redness
  • Wound healing
  • Hyperpigmentation & Acne
  • Anti-aging
  • Helps with Rosacea & Eczema

Anti-Inflammatory & Redness Reducing

German Chamomile can be used to tame skin inflammation from sunburn and rashes because it contains an antioxidant called apigenin, which can lower inflammation.1

Chamomile has been used since the ancient Greeks to treat irritated and red skin. They found that crushing chamomile like a powder and applying it to the skin helped to calm it.1

Wound Healing

Essential oils are extracted from chamomile and they produce an antimicrobial effect that protects wounds from different types of fungi, viruses, and bacteria.1 

Hyperpigmentation & Acne

Chamomile has brightening properties that can help fade hyperpigmentation.  It also has astringent properties to help fade acne scars when used daily.1

In addition to fading hyperpigmentation, chamomile can gently kill acne-causing bacteria on the surface of the skin. It also helps speed up cell regeneration to clear the skin.1


German chamomile speeds up cell and tissue renewal, reduces the appearance of fine lines, and gives a youthful glow. This is done through powerful antioxidants called polyphenols and phytochemicals.1

These antioxidants help to neutralize free radical damage caused by environmental stressors and cellular aging.

Soothes Rosacea & Eczema

Rosacea can cause redness and itchiness.  When applied topically, German chamomile can help reduce redness and soothe the skin.3

Chamomile contains three compounds called bisoprolol, apigenin, and chamazulene.  These compounds have healing and anti-inflammatory properties that can help with Rosacea, Eczema, and those with sensitive skin.1
