Migrated topic.
It's ok to take essential oils internally? I thought it was more intended for external use and tinctures were internal? Would a chamomile essential oil have the same benefits as chamomile tea when taken orally?
Chamomile's sedative effects are largely from the flavonoid content and this is not something which gets carried over into the essential oil. I would not recommend ingesting essential oil of chamomile. Also, there are two different kinds of chamomile available, with different properties. German chamomile gives the pretty blue oil, whereas from Roman comes plain, boring, oil-coloured oil.

Thank for the info on the chamomile oil! I will stick to tea!
