Ammi Visnaga, also called Khella
essential oil, is steam distilled from the seeds of the khella plant,
which grows in Morocco. Amni Visnaga is not purchased for its aroma;
when steam-inhaled, it is a powerful antispasmodic and thus is used
to treat bronchial asthma and bronchitis. It also is used to control
allergic reactions, because it prevents the release of histamines.

Following Christoph's advice, I diffused a 1:4 mixture of amni visnaga and eucalyptus radiata 20 mins. twice per day to relieve asthma symptoms. The results were amazing! The combination of oils cleared out the congestion and relaxed my breathing. Total relief without an inhaler! I don't know what I would do without amni visnaga. Yes, it's expensive. But when you combine it with E. radiata it's very affordable and the two oils work together very well.
