AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: The aroma of Katrafay essential oil is “earthy” with a green, mossy scent. The pale yellow liquid blends well with Lavender, Tea Tree, Rosemary, Clary Sage, Nutmeg, Lemon and Marjoram.
APPLICATION: Katrafay should be diluted well and applied to areas of concern.
PHYSICAL ASPECTS: The remarkable quality about Katrafay is its high percentage of sesquiterpenes (about 67.5%). Sesquiterpene molecules readily cross the blood/brain barrier. They bring increased amounts of oxygen and healing properties to the central nervous system. The high percentage of sesquiterpenes also makes Katrafay a good fragrance fixative. Katrafay essential oil is indicated for mental fatigue, headaches, sciatica and muscle pains. It is traditionally used in Madagascar after childbirth.
CAUTIONS: Katrafay is generally non-toxic and non-sensitizing. It should be diluted well. Avoid use during pregnancy.
