- Test Report
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.

They say this essential oil is similar to Roman Chamomile and I would agree. Very sweet and fruity smelling, and a lot less expensive than Roman chamomile.
I love this Owyhee Oil. Like the name implies, it has a lovely peachy scent which I find to be happy and calming. I've read that it is an excellent substitute for Roman Chamomile and it is much less expensive so that is nice. I like to put a few drops of this in my foaming hand soap, makes me smile to smell it. I also use it a lot in my night lotions. Along with Wild Verbena, it is my definitely one of my favorite Miracle Botanicals oils, though I will say I have loved all of my purchases here :)
