It is superb for muscular aches and pains (striated muscle), menstrual cramps and IBS (smooth muscle).
Its digestive effects are well established and it eases nausea, flatulence and cramps.
Use in balms and gels for sports injury massage as it is a great analgesic as well as being soothing and cooling.
It is strongly antifungal, so is a very good choice in foot creams and gels.
It’s analgesic qualities are a welcome relief to aching feet.
As it is an antiseptic and anti inflammatory, it is a good choice for acne prone skin products.
A good anti oxidative effect makes it useful for rejuvenating creams and serums and all other anti ageing products.
Very effective to use on bruises and skin burns.
Gentle enough that it can be used neat on non sensitised skin, it is better when diluted and blended with other oils.
