Common Uses: Fenugreek Essential Oil is reputed to aid in digestion. As an emollient it is used in poultices for boils, cysts and other complaints. Fenugreek has been considered carminative, demulcent, expectorant, laxative and stomachic. The plant has also been employed against sore throats, wounds, swollen glands, skin irritations, diabetes, ulcers and in some cases for the treatment of cancer. Acting as an expectorant, it contains mucilagins which are known for soothing and relaxing inflamed tissues, relieves congestion, reduces inflammation and fights infection, alleviates coughing, stimulates perspiration to reduce fevers, and is beneficial for treating allergies and bronchitis. Fenugreek is also an excellent source of selenium, an anti-radiant which helps the body utilize oxygen and is also a natural source of iron, silicon, sodium and thiamine. It is reputed to be used in conjunction with insulin to aid in diabetes and also to lower blood pressure. Fenugreek has also been used to promote lactation and as an aphrodisiac.
History: Its name is derived from the Latin foenum for Greek hay, illustrating its use in classical times as feed. Fenugreek is an ancient spice, although currently not much used in the West. It was used by the ancient Egyptians to combat fever, and later throughout the Mediterranean basin as cattle fodder. By the Middle Ages, it was being grown as a medicinal plant in India and throughout Europe, and in India it is still used in Ayurvedic medicine, and as a yellow dye.
Cautions: May cause skin irritation. Dilute well before use. Avoid use during pregnancy.

It smells like maple syrup!!! Not Mrs. Butterworth's, but real, sweet delicious syrup, with an herby note as well. It's quite unusual, but it's really pleasant, and fun to work with. Thanks NDA for for carrying this oil, it's oddly delightful :)
Loyal Customer Since: 2011
First & foremost, New Directions Aromatics is my premier choice when I'm seeking high quality oils (carrier & essential) at a reasonable price. "Fenugreek Essential Oil" is a rare gem that is not easily found, so when I saw that NDA carried it I was elated, but, when I received it I was absolutely astonished by this most heavenly, mystifying, rich and exotic oil that took my senses on an Indian excursion. I Love this essential oil immensely, it's my most prized essential oil!!!
Loyal Customer Since: 2008
This fenugreek has rich depth...the aroma of Indian food and the smell of freshly applied oil paint...It deeply affects my heart and is a source of entry to meditative presence. For me, it's the best fenugreek I have ever smelled.
Loyal Customer Since: 2006
very interesting scent - it is not beautiful but very mysterious for sure. I just cant seem to put it down. I will report later regarding use with blood sugar control.
