ABOUT THE OIL

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 and vary greatly in size, from small species a few centimeters tall to enormous perennials over 3 meters tall. The oil carries with it an accompanying pleasant floral/cineol aroma. Our Inula essential oil is steam distilled from the roots of Inula graveolens, producing a unique essential oil in terms of aroma, color and most importantly, therapeutics. In 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.

Aromatherapy Notes

This is a profoundly therapeutic oil and its effects can be felt by simply smelling the oil directly from the bottle. Inula is a very "hot" oil and should not be allowed to come into direct contact with skin or mucous membranes. Its deep yellow color and rich aroma are unique and lovely, absolutely unmatched by any other essential oil.

Application and Use

Safety

Inula graveolens should not be interchanged with Inula helenium as helenium is considered one of the most dangerous oils available for aromatherapy despite its antimicrobial effects. Inula graveolens is a 'hot' oil and should not come in direct contact with skin and delicate mucus membranes. Use caution when inhaling and be sure to dilute properly when preparing for topical use.
