Sedatives (such as barbiturates, benzodiazepines, anesthetics) Essential oils noted as "sedating" may interact when applied topically or taken internally. Harris notes that essential oils high in 1,8 cineole such as Rosemary, Eucalpytus, Ravintsara and Bay Laurel (Laurel Leaf) are contraindicated for those on barbiturates, as they induce rapid metabolism of these drugs. 1
Anesthesia Many oils commonly used for respiratory issues, such as Rosemary, Eucalpytus, Ravintsara and Bay Laurel (Laurel Leaf) are high in 1,8 cineole, which can interfere with metabolism of anesthesia. Clinical aromatherapist, Rhiannon Harris notes that these should be avoided (both topically and via inhalation) for at least a week prior to any surgeries to prevent complications.1
