Chamomile Oil

Wagner (1993) reported that the yield of dry flowers of chamomile [Chamomilla recutita (L.) Rauschert] was highest when the plants were grown in sandy well-drained soils. In Slovenia the average yield of chamomile flowers is ca. 500kg/ha. Wagner further reported that the main components of a good quality chamomile oil produced in Slovenia were as follows:

(E)-β-farnesene (15.1%)
