Chamomile Essential Oil (Anthemis nobilis oil) is derived from Chamomile flowers. These pretty white and yellow flowers grow in Europe and Asia. They are believed to have anti-inflammatory and healing properties which help to calm the skin and soothe redness. This is why we use this beautiful oil in our Dog and Cat Shampoo. As a result, your pet’s skin and coat will be soothed and moisturised.
Many people drink chamomile tea to relax their mind and body. However, did you know that Chamomile Oil does the same for your skin? The list of benefits for the skin is a long one. For instance, it has natural anti-septic and analgesic properties, so if your dog or cat has sore skin, our shampoo is a must. Along with other ingredients like Neem and Sea Buckthorn, Chamomile can help the skin to repair and strengthen.
The word ‘chamomile’ originates from Greek words ‘chamos’ which means ‘ground’ and ‘milos’ which means ‘apple’. This is because it grows close to the ground and smells a bit like apple!
One further fun fact for you; Buckingham Palace uses chamomile instead of grass on its lawns!
Never use neat essential oils on your pets. It should always be diluted to an appropriate ratio.
