Larruk Essential Oil contains Linalool, a naturally occurring terpene alcohol found in many flowers and spice plants. These have multiple commercial applications, the majority of which are based on its pleasant scent. It occurs naturally in many of the essential oils we use. Linalool has been reported for insecticidal activity and has potential against cat fleas. It can be used for the control of ticks and fleas, fruit flies and houseflies. Linalool has anti-fungal and antimicrobial activities. It has been demonstrated to reduce the presence of female mosquitoes by almost twice as much as citronella candles and indoors it repels mosquitoes. Linalool is commonly found as major component of essential oils of several aromatic species, many of which are used traditionally as sedatives.

Linalool is colorless, or very pale yellow. It has a floral fragrance and it is commonly used in cleaning products, lipsticks, perfumes, shampoos and bubble bath. It can be extracted from plants, and it is also sometimes made synthetically. Linalool is a common terpene that is found in lavender and actually contributes to the plant’s distinct flavor and its powerful scent. It is a popular aromatherapy and sleep aid and it is also a powerful relaxant. In traditional Ayurvedic medicine, it has been used as an anxiety treatment and it has also been used as a sleep aid. Linalool is linked to the production of Vitamin E, which means that it is an important terpene to help support the healthy functioning of the human body. Melaleuca Quinquenervia Oil Linalool chemotype is an anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, calming, sedative to help sleep while fighting respiratory issues. For a good night’s sleep put a couple of drops in a vaporizer or a steam bowl. A few drops in the washing machine will soften and help prevent rashes. For a totally relaxing bath or spa 3ml to 6ml will ease away tension and pain.
Where there are benefits to any product, there are downsides if used incorrectly, however the potential negative aspects of linalool are minimal. Rare side effects of this natural compound include skin irritation or allergic reaction upon direct contact. Only a small minority of people who underwent patch testing experienced irritation from oxidized linalool at high concentrations, but as long as the essential oil or linalool extractive is pure and fresh, it is not just safe, but beneficial.
We recommend you seek advice from your health care practitioner if your symptoms do not go away or if they become worse.
