This EO is said to be anti-inflammatory. Color is pale yellow and it is considered a 'middle' note. It's used for fatigue, rheumatism, arthritis, headaches, sciatica and muscular pains. Avoid during pregnancy. Blends well with Lavender, Tea Tree, Rosemary and Clary Sage. Flash point 120F. Cannot ship internationally or via air or ocean.

Katrafay oil seems to be severely underestimated and underutilized. It has proven to be a potent addition to my pain oil blend for relief of my severe joint and muscle pain, making it just as important as any other EO indicated for inflammation.
Gorgeous green grassy scent
Alice Luxton (Portland, OR, US) | November 3rd, 2010
As with so many great ingredients the complex character of this oil comes forth when blended or diluted. Think... not quite freshly cut grass, but long uncut grass and moist foliage with an earthy undernote. Great stuff for "green" blends.
Secrets to Katrafay
Diane Bean (youngsville, NC, US) | September 14th, 2009
I had never heard of this one BUT I find it to be a secret ingredient of sorts. Aside from listed essential oils it blends with it also has the ability to tone down aromas that are a strong top note with other essential oils or oil belnds. The trick is when using it is to let your test bottle sit for about a week to get a good feel for the scent your blending.
