Essential Oils: Conyza
(AKA Canadian Fleabane, Erigeron, Canadian Horseweed, or simply Horseweed). It ranges across most of Canada and the entire US, and has numerous historical herbal uses. It is a panacea plant that was commonly employed for coughs, fever, sore throat, nasal congestion, earaches and rhinitis. It has also been used as an analgesic for headache, backache, joint pain, sprains and trauma. Other traditional uses were as a gastrointestinal aid for diarrhea and stomachache, and as a dermatological aid for acne, sunburn and lightening of ‘age’ or ‘liver’ spots. The aroma of the oil is complex, with resinous, earthy base notes, with a mild sweet anise middle note.
