Owyhee Essential Oil is a rare and exotic oil that's sourced from a plant native to the Western U.S. Its name comes from the Owyhee region in Idaho where the plant is widespread, and this region in turn gets its name from an old, alternate spelling for Hawaii.
The Owyhee plant has a long tradition of herbal healing among local populations, including being used for pain relief and digestive problems. In aromatherapy, this essential oil is useful for its wonderful aroma, for its gentle effects on the skin, as well as for its pain relief and anti-inflammatory action.
Specific Benefits of Owyhee Essential Oil as follows: Skincare... Due to its high ester content, Owyhee essential oil is known to help inflamed skin. It can be used to help recover from sunburn, treat rashes, aid in wound healing, and reduce skin swelling and redness.
Stress and anxiety relief... Owyhee essential oil has a similar profile to Roman Chamomile essential oil, and it is equally powerful in helping to reduce stress, anxiety, tension, neuralgia, and generalized negative emotions.
Anti-inflammatory... Because of its proven pain relief and anti-inflammatory actions, Owyhee essential oil can be helpful with muscle and joint pain, headaches, as well as cramps and spasms.
