Sassafras Albidium is a North American species of sassafras whose oil is an aromatic that was once popular in the fragrance industry. Sassafras oil is used in aromatherapy, and it is an effective insect repellant. It is also reported that sassafras oil was once used as an anesthetic in dentistry. Sassafras oil contains high levels of safrole as well as thujone, elemecin, eugenol, myristicin and asarone. Sassafras is not only an aromatic, but it has long been a traditional flavoring. Sassafras plant material was long drunk as a tasty tea, especially as an herbal remedy for fever, decreased immunity and urinary tract infections. Sassafras was also traditionally used to flavor candies and medicine. The roots and bark of the sassafras tree were the original source of flavoring for root beer until studies showed that safrole was carcinogenic, ultimately leading the FDA to ban its use in food products. Nowadays, safrole-free sassafras extracts exist. But otherwise, internal use of sassafras material is not recommended. This product is offered as an aromatic herb only and is not intended for human consumption.
