Aroma: This oil has a cool, earthy, and herbal aroma with floral top notes and hints. Some say it as almost a fruity smell, although I find it to be more of a sweet green and herbal smell.
Personal notes: I have been using this specific variety from Nepal for a little over a year and find it to be a wonderful oil to aid in respiratory issues for children. It is supportive of the immune system and assists calming and soothing spasmodic coughs where congestion is involved. I also have created a personal blend using this essential oil I use to ease the itch, pain, and inflammation I get from bug bites due to my allergies. I have found this blend to completely relieve the perception of these symptoms. Also, in the analysis by our chemist its physical aspect is noted as a dark blue liquid.
Safety Data: This oil does interact with drugs metabolized by CYP2D6 when used by any route. It has the potential to potentiate the actions of antidepressants.
Usage idea: Try this respiratory supportive blend for your diffuser:
- 2 drops Rhododendron
- 1 drops German Chamomile
- 1 drop Virginia Cedarwood
Energetic qualities: Cooling, grounding, truth speaking, supportive of unconditional love, balancing, and clarity, is also protective when needed.
Recommended applications: Inhalation and topical application using safe dilution ratios.
Other information & considerations:
- As a blue oil, it should always be sealed and stored in a dark and cool space to prevent oxidation.
- Do not place on broken skin.
