Inula Essential Oil (Fragrant Aster)- A Breath of Pure Sunshine!

Inula flower essential oil

Inula Essential Oil is a rare and potent oil, that has been traditionally used to support respiratory function, reduce joint pain and inflammation and is a great beauty aid for those with oily skin. Best of all, Inula Essential Oil is like a breath of sunshine straight out of a bottle!

Sunshine in a Bottle
Inula, or Inula Graveolens (also known as fragrant aster), is a rare essential oil that originates from the Mediterranean. The small yellow and white flowers are steam distilled in small batches, making this oil very precious. Inula Essential Oil is traditionally used in aromatherapy for relief from respiratory issues like asthma, sinus congestion and colds. Inula has also been used to relieve joint pain associated with arthritis and has shown effectiveness in calming overactive sebum production in the skin.

Deep Breath
Using Inula for respiratory support is the most popular and researched application of Inula. This is because Inula graveolens contains close to 26% borneol, which makes it an effective antibacterial agent. Inula Essential Oil is known for loosening mucous and relieving deep congestion due to its antitussive and expectorant properties. Using Inula Essential Oil can relieve and lessen the symptoms of acute conditions like coughs, asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis, and other respiratory ailments. This is due to its mucolytic and bronchospasmolytic activity, along with many other properties mentioned.

Ayurvedic Applications
From an Ayurvedic perspective, Inula Essential Oil can be useful for reducing excess kapha, lethargy, and congestion.  To help relieve excess kapha and uplift the body and spirit, Inula Essential Oil can be used along with dietary adaptions and physical exercise, to allow the systems to open up, lighten up and get you moving again!

Below are a few recipes that you can use to help relieve congestion, uplift your energy, and tone the skin using Inula Essential Oil.
