I was recently encouraged to research Canadian fleabane essential oil when a friend and fellow oil lover asked me about its uses. Not knowing much about this plant, or its secondary metabolites, as a naturopathic essential oils doctor, I dove into the research.
In my latest post, I highlight my main findings. I discuss:
- The many common names of Canadian fleabane and why it has two taxonomic classifications (Erigeron canadensis and Conzya canadensis)
- The compounds found in fleabane
- The traditional and proposed uses of Canadian fleabane, which demonstrates how it got its common name
- The research behind the actions and effects of the plant and oil
- Inferring Canadian fleabane essential oil’s best applications based on its historic uses, the research, and the individual constituents present
Now that we are heading into hotter weather in the Northeast, humans and bugs will both be competing for outdoor space. Fleabane may be a good oil to add to prevent these annoyances, while it also supports various body systems.
