Benefits of iJuice Celery Seed Essential Oil
Here are some of the amazing benefits of iJuice Celery Seed Essential Oil.
1. Chemopreventive benefits
A 2009 animal study looked at the chemo-preventive effects of several compounds in celery seed essential oil, including limonene, p-menth-2,8-diene-1-ol, 3‐n‐butyl phthalide and sedanolide. The researchers found that the number of tumors in the mice under investigation decreased by more than 50% after treatment with sedanolide and by 30% after treatment with 3‐n‐butyl phthalide. These compounds also significantly reduced (>60%) the spreading of the tumors.Therefore, celery seed essential oil and sedanolide may have significant anti-tumor and chemopreventive benefits.
2. Antioxidant or Antiacid
Studies have also proved that celery seed essential oil has antioxidant benefits. Here's a study published in 2007 that shows this. The study examined the antioxidant activity of thirteen essential oils including jasmine, celery seed, parsley seed, ylang ylang and patchouliessential oil. While celery seed was not the most antioxidant oil tested, it did show good results. And limonene was identified as the compound responsible for these antioxidant or antiacid benefits.
iJuice Celery Seed Essential Oil also has antibacterial effects. A 2002 study explored the effects of 96 essential oils on four types of bacteria - including Escherichia coli and Campylobacter jejuni. Celery seed essential oil was found to be most active against Campylobacter jejuni, the bacteria that causes food poisoning.
iJuice Celery Seed Essential Oil has greater effects on fungi than on bacteria. And a 1999 study validates this. The study showed that celery seed essential oil was able to inhibit the fungi, Candida albicans, at concentrations of one milligram per liter.
iJuice Celery Seed Essential Oil has exhibited great larvicidal, repellent and insecticidal benefits. And there are several studies that prove it.A 2015 study looked at the activity of twelve essential oils against the larvae of the Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus). Of the twelve essential oils, seven killed over 90% of the larvae at concentrations of 0.1 mg/L. Yes that's 0.1 mg/L! The seven were ajowan, caraway, carrot seed, celery seed, cumin, dill, and parsley. The study went on to suggest limonene was the compound responsible for celery seed's larvicidal benefits.
