Essential Oils: Artemisias and Ambrosia
NEW! Bursage (slim leaf) (Ambrosia confertiflora)
Collected in Sedona, but grows abundantly in the Southwest and Northern Mexico. The aroma is herbaceous, earthy, warm and mildly sweet. This plant has been used traditionally for intestinal pain and cramps, sore joints and skin irritations. The EO used topically is both anti spasmodic and anti bacterial.
Sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata)
A ubiquitous high desert artemisia, gathered at Red Butte, near the South Rim of the Grand Canyon (7,000 ft.). The aroma is very powerful, as are itʼs therapeutic qualities. Antimicrobial, antifungal, antiparasitic, analgesic and mucolytic. Contains ketones, should not be used by pregnant or lactating women, and should only be used under the guidance of a Clinical Aromatherapist.
Sand Sage (Artemisia filifolia)
Gathered in the high desert of Northern Arizona (4,500 ft. elevation). The aroma is herbaceous, slightly reminiscent of Davana, with a refreshing top note. It is a classic desert scent, with an expansive quality which reflects the landscape from which it arises. Antispasmodic and carminative (excellent for indigestion), mucolytic and expectorant. Contains minor amounts of camphor and ethers. Use under the guidance of a Clinical Aromatherpist.
