Since there are two unique varieties of chamomile, you’ll find their aromas also vary. German (Blue) chamomile, Matricaria recutita, has an herbaceous fragrance that is sweet, fruity, strong, and rich, while Roman chamomile, Anthemis nobilis / Chamaemelum nobile, smells like fresh apples.
Antispasmodic essential oils can help to relieve cramping in the intestines or uterus.
Clary Sage’s aroma varies, but it is most often described as earthy and warming. Some variations emanate fruit, floral, sweet, or bittersweet scents, while others are considered musky, herbaceous, or dry.
Frankincense has a spicy, woody, resinous aroma that is reminiscent of incense. It can smell fresh and occasionally fruity, like citrus. Much like wine made from grapes in a specific region, frankincense’s fragrance is characteristic of the soil in which it is grown. Frankincense essential oil adds depth and a stable, grounded quality to aromatherapy blends.
Ginger’s aroma ranges from warm, spicy, woody, and earthy to bright and mildly sweet. Essential oils made from fresh ginger tend to have a fresher, spicier fragrance, while oils made from dried ginger are usually earthier in aroma.
Lavender has a fresh, herbal, floral aroma that many people associate with old-fashioned soap. Different varieties of lavender have different aromatic profiles, with some smelling more sharp and herbaceous, others more floral, and others more soft and honey-like.
Marjoram has a spicy, herbal, slightly camphoraceous aroma.
Peppermint offers a pleasant and familiar aroma, uplifting and fresh in its mint-based scent. It can be a strongly fragrant oil, as peppermint essence is highly concentrated.
Zdravetz essential oil has a floral, green, sometimes herbal and slightly woody aroma.
