Toxic Essential Oils

Certain essential oils maybe qualified as Toxic oils. And those are measured by toxicity and emmenagogic activity in our body.

An example of this is Savin oil. Savon oil is one of toxic oil which can cause abortion due to its emmenagogic activity and make a potential abortion but it's because savon's toxicity so this oil classified as toxic. Savon's toxicity has bigger concern to our health than its emmenagogic activity.

Note that even abortifacient essential oils are only toxic when ingested in large volume.

Pennyroyal essential oil has the following qualities: antiseptic, carminative, sudoritic, emmenagogic, febrifugal, analgesic and expectorant.

This plant has been used for many purposes for centuries, but today, the oil is consider hazardous essential oils.
