Celery seed has been used medicinally for thousands of years. Ayurvedic tradition utilized celery seed for arthritis, internal issues of the liver/spleen, as a remedy for cold sores, in the treatment of the common cold and flu, and for inadequate digestion.

It is also considered effective for reducing cellulite and puffy skin. The antioxidant capacity of celery seed essential oil is considerable, combating free radical damage. Studies have also demonstrated celery seed essential oil to be an effective insect repellent.
Celery seed essential oil is a unique addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, perfumery, insect repellents, and aromatherapy.
