About Our Butterbur Essential Oil

Butterbur - Petasites hybridus - has a long history of traditional uses in European, especially Austrian herbalism. The results of its traditional applications were convincing enough to warrant scientific investigations which basically confirmed the traditional lore.

As the above references report about Petasites extracts it is important to remember that the composition of the essential oil might be different from the composition of the extract. However, most research focuses on the component Petasin, an ester of the sesquiterpene alcohol petasol with Angelic acid. According to "l'aromatherapie exactement" Butterbur is a more powerful antispasmodic than the pharmacological standard Papaverine.
