About the Plant:

Ammi Visnaga is an annual or biennial flowering plant from the carrot family. It has a slender stalk with delicate threadlike leaves topped with a shapely canopy of tiny white flowers. Like a carrot, it has a taproot that extends beneath the soil. Amrita Aromatherapy imports Ammi Visnaga Essential Oil from a source in Morocco that distills the finest quality Amni Visnaga oil for aromatherapy purposes. Ammi Visnaga Essential Oil of this quality is rarely found.

Where it Grows:

Ammi Visnaga is native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa. But it can be found throughout the world as an introduced species. Amrita® Aromatherapy is proud to have Organic Ammi Visnaga from Morocco.

Traditional Uses and Lore:

Ammi Visnaga's therapeutic benefits have traditionally been utilized within the Mediterranean region. In Israel, Amni Visnaga is used to treat diabetes. Ancient Egyptians left behind manuscripts describing its use for treating vitiligo. People suffering from allergic bronchial asthma and emphysema have been given Ammi Visnaga to inhale, bringing their symptoms under control.

It has also been traditionally given in medicines to relieve the intense pain of kidney stones through two functions: relaxing the surrounding organs and dissolving the stones themselves. It is also said to keep teeth and gums healthy.

Certified Organic Ammi Visnaga Essential Oil is among the most valuable and impressive essential oils in anyone's collection of therapeutic substances. When steam-inhaled, it is remarkably effective in treating asthma and allergies.

Topical Application (for use on the skin):

  • Overall Topical Application: Dilute up to 2-4% in any carrier oil (10-20 drops per tablespoon of carrier oil) for the following and apply on affected areas:
    • Muscle Spasms: Ammi Visnaga is powerful enough to even break up kidney stones. Because this herb is so potent, it must be handled with caution.
  • Note: Total Body Massage is not recommended with Ammi Visnaga. See precautions below.

Diffusion / Inhalation (add a few drops to a nebulizer or nasal diffuser):

  • Ammi Visnaga is expensive, so it is more cost-effective to dilute it with other suitable essential oils. This will also improve the scent.
    • Asthma: For asthma, it is recommended to inhale Ammi Visnaga on a daily basis.
    • Allergies: Diffusion
    • Bronchitis: Steam Inhalation

Ammi Visnaga is medicinal, plain and simple. It is a highly prized ingredient in folk medicine to treat difficult problems such as asthma, bronchitis, and kidney stones. Due to its unusual scent, you won't find any shampoos, body butters, or room sprays bearing its name.

Its scent is known as a strong herbal; thus, it makes people think about sweet, earthy, and woody aromas. As is sometimes the case with highly effective substances, its odor can sometimes be unpleasant for people. Many people prefer to blend Ammi Visnaga Essential Oil with other essential oils having similar properties in order to mask the scent.

Ammi Visnaga Essential Oil is antispasmodic, which means it eases spasms. It is also an antihistamine, which means it blocks the allergic response. It's so effective in treating asthma that scientists actually create a synthesized version of one of Ammi Visnaga's major compounds and include it as part of prescription asthma medications.

When steam-inhaled, Ammi Visnaga Essential Oil may help to bring asthma attacks under control and relieve the symptoms of bronchitis by suppressing bronchial spasms. It also can be used to control allergic reactions, because it prevents the release of histamines.

The following is a list of conditions which Ammi Visnaga Essential Oil addresses by category:

  • Musculoskeletal System:

    • Suppress Bronchial Spasms
