Perilla Oil for the Treatment of Allergic Rhinitis

Perilla oil is extracted from the seeds of the Perilla frutescens plant in the Lamiaceae/Labiatae family. Native to India and China, it is a significant source of omega-3 fatty acids, specifically plant-based, alpha-linolenic acids.


A staple of Asian cuisine, Perilla oil lends a distinct nutty flavor, while its leaves serve as a food-poisoning antidote. However, Perilla’s antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties have been used in Chinese medicine to treat gastrointestinal and respiratory issues.
