Inula Graveolens is part of a a large genus of about 90 species of flowering plants in the Asteraceae family native to Europe, Asia, and Africa. The plants are tall and coarse having daisy-like yellow flowers with narrow petals whose rhizomatous roots are used medicinally. They are mostly perennial andt vary greatly in size, from small species a few centimeters tall to enormous perennials over 3 meters tall. Our Inula essential oil is steam distilled from the roots of Inula graveolens, producing a very unique essential oil in terms of aroma, color and most importantly, therapeutics.

ABOUT THE OIL

Inula essential oil is steam distilled from the roots of Inula graveolens, producing a very unique essential oil in terms of aroma, color and most importantly, therapeutics. To help move out a cold or infection, it is crucial that mucous be broken down, and Inula does this with very small amounts. It the aromatherapy texts, it is mentioned that the concentration necessary is only at odor threshold and no more—so if one can smell it, it should have the desired effect. The oil's cineol aroma is accompanied by pleasant floral notes.

Safety

Generally non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitizing. Always test a small amount first for sensitivity or allergic reaction.

It is also a very ""hot"" oil, and should not be allowed to come into direct contact with mucous membranes. Inula graveolens should not be interchanged with Inula helenium; helenium is considered one of the most dangerous oils available for aromatherapy despite its antimicrobial effects.

If pregnant consult with a physician prior to use.
