Galbanum Essential Oil

Hello
Recently posted re: Peripheral Neuropathy, had some feedback including the use of Galbanum oil but was warned of its topical use, for this complaint, as it can create a severe burning sensation in the extremities. Can anyone advise on this?

Hi,
From Julia Lawless's book Encyclopedia of essential oils, it says safety data: non-toxic, non-irritant, non-sensitizing. Blends well with hyacinth, violet, nacissus, lavender, geranium, oakmoss, opopanax, pine, fir, styrax and oriental bases. Principal consituents: Pinene, cardinol, cadinene and myrcene among others. Perhaps because it is a resin and a terpene it needs a milder essential oil such as lavender to compliment it and use it is a lower concentration, I have not used it myself but I hope this info helps in some way.

Thank you Mai
A helpful response. I am receiving a fairly positive result with this particular client, however, I think it will be a long process>
