Research Facts
"The volatile oil is distilled from the root of sassafras varifolium (Salisbury); the oil may solidify in whole or in part on standing and in this case it should be warmed and thoroughly mixed before dispensing; physical properties: oil of sassafras occurs as a yellow or reddish-yellow liquid.""Seldom given internally, though it has been used as a flavouring agent; large doses of sassafras oil cause fatty changes in the liver and kidneys; it has been used to destroy pediculi [lice], but more effective agents are available; it was recommended that sassafras oil be prohibited for use in foods as a flavouring agent."
