Essential Oil Properties and Uses:
Essential Oil Constituents:
Sabinene: No current data available
Linanool: Linalool one of the terpene alcohols is widely
distributed in the plant kingdom. Linalool has strong effects on the nervous
system and is therefore widely used by aroma therapists and herbologists as a
sedative, spasmolytic and local anaesthetic. It is also used against many skin
complaints, mostly in the form of tea tree oil.
Carvacrol: A Monoterpene Phenol.
Found mainly in Thyme,
Marjoram and Oregano, Carvacrol is a very irritant compound. Great care should
be exercised with sensitivity and dosage.
Eugenol: Anaesthetic, antimicrobal, disinfecting, stimulant,
aromatic and anticonvulsant.
Eugenol is a Phenylpropanoid in the Phenols group.
Eugenol is widely distributed in the plant kingdom.
Sensitivity should be tested before using this substance or oil on the skin.
Thymol: A phenolic volatile oil.
Phenolic oils: Found only in a select few aromatic herbs
Phenolic volatile oils are very potent and caustic, expectorant, antispasmodic
and antimicrobial but very irritant to the mucus membrane. Phenols can be either
Monoterpene (thymol, carvacrol found in thyme and oregano) expectorant,
antispasmodic and antimicrobial which is very irritant to the mucus membrane or Phenylpropanoid (Euganol which is widely distributed in plants) that is
much more benign while having the same properties.
