Ajwain (Trachyspermum ammi) from India
This conventionally steam distilled essential oil has a sharp, herbaceous, medicinal scent. Folklore states that it can be used for indigestion, nerve conditions, congestion, coughs, and bronchitis. It is also said to help with elimination of uric acid in the body, aiding gout and arthritis. It should never be used by pregnant women to those wishing to become pregnant as it brings on menstruation.
Always dilute your essential oils in an unscented carrier oil like Sesame or Jojoba. Ten drops per ounce of carrier oil is a good general rule. Do not take essential oils internally. Always store essential oils out of heat and sunlight. Keep essential oils away from children.
