This oil may interact with certain drugs, may modulate reproductive hormones, may inihibit blood clotting, cause skin sensitization if oxidized, and is potentially carcinogenic based on estragole content. Never use essential oils undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children.
