When I first received this essential oil for review I was unsure what to do with it. Personally, I use essential oils in soaps, candles, lotions, exfoliants, as a pain reliever, and for relaxation. Turns out that Ajowan is used for migraine and digestive relief. Best way I recommend to use this is wet a washcloth with warm water and wring it out. Put a few drops of Ajowan seed on it and breath it in for a few seconds. Repeat for a few minutes and it should alleviate the pain. Ajowan smells a lot like thyme so i would combine this with another oil like lavendar for soothing properties! This is a very unique oil, but definitely one I would use again!
