GeneralDescription: The plant originated in South America and spread to South Africa then north to other countries where it grows wild. It is one of the few plants which now grows comfortably in all five continents and is familiar with gardeners in Britain where it is a popular border plant. It has very pungent leaves and flowers and is almost sickening in odour. The oil is highly viscous and capable of becoming resinified with age. Not a popular oil in aromatherapy due to its irritancy
