The oil is obtained by steam distillation of the dried flower heads of the herb arthemis nobilis. The name is derived from the Greek "arthemis" meaning ground apple and the Latin "nobilis" meaning noble flowers. The oil has been used in shampoos throughout the ages, particularly to highlight and condition fair hair.
