This oil is indicated for asthma and hay fever. It dilates the coronary blood vessels, and relieves spasm in the smooth muscle of the bronchi. It is sedative, anti-spasmodic and anti-convulsive. The furanocoumarins present contribute to the sedative action, but also make this oil phototoxic (like Bergamot, Angelica, Lemon Verbena, Cumin and Citrus oils).
Safety: Do not apply to exposed skin and always dilute in a base oil.
