Certified Organic


5 years





Our certified organic Sweet Inula essential oil is steam distilled from the flowering Inula herb that flourishes in Corsica or Morocco's dry, rocky soil. The delicate yellow flowers and rich green stems of the Inula graveolens shrub create an earthy, fresh, sweet, camphor-like essential oil. Along with supporting healthy lung activity, Sweet Inula essential oil is highly sought after by aromatherapists for its calming and balancing qualities. This essential oil often soothes and quiets situational anxiety and depression. Inula essential oil also helps usher in a more profound, restful sleep.

Suggested Uses

Breathe - Cold Season

We love using Inula essential oil to help maintain healthy lung activity when we're feeling congested from a cold, the flu, or allergies.

Relieve - Soreness

Inula is also used to help ease minor pain and inflammation, and is welcome when looking to soothe hot, reddened areas and is incredibly nourishing and healing in general to the skin.

Energy - Energizing

Emotionally and energetically, Sweet Inula essential oil builds confidence and refreshes our emotions. This essential oil can help attract positive energy and promote a greater sense of inner strength and courage.

Safety & Warnings

No known safety issues. Sweet Inula should not be confused with a related plant Inula helenium. While Inula graveolens is frequently used in aromatherapy, Inula helenium, also known as Elecampane (distilled from the root), is a severe dermal sensitizer and should not be used. Our sweet Inula is 100% Inula graveolens and entirely safe for therapeutic use.

A Passion for Aromatherapy

Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.

I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.

Love, Karen
