Wild plants grow with fragrance and pinnately divided leaves. In other form, biennial form, plants have a basal rosette of leaves in primary years, later near summers, it florates in off white flowers in umbels. Umbels are with property of inflorescence. The flowers of the plants are so small with five petals of ovule shape within floured tips. The carpals of the flower are in semi trade sub pentagonal and filiform. The primary ridges of the carpals are very much distinct. The fruit of the plant is schizocarp (a dry fruit when ripe, splits into single seeded parts). These fruits are aromatic, 1 to 2 mm in diameter, with two mericarps, sub orbicular and ellipsoid. The color of the flowers are greyish brown. There is cross pollination found in this plant.

Celery Essential Oil in Pharma

Celery also stimulates semen production and relieves offensive breath. Al-Rajhi said that one should avoid eating celery if he/she fears that he/she might suffer a scorpion sting. A. graveolens is a big source phenolic compounds, which provides a good source of antioxidants. The antioxidant activity of Karafs leaf was investigated (by scavenging of the 1,1-diphenyl 2-picrylhydrazyl [DPPH] radical activity) and found to be a strong natural antioxidant by inhibiting oxidant process. It may be attributed to its antioxidant constituents including L-tryptophan and derivatives of methoxy-phenyl chromenone. The seed oil of the celery has a strong larvicidal, adulticidal, and repellent activity against the Aedes aegypti larva, the vector of dengue hemorrhage fever. In another study, the mosquito repellent activity of celery oil (with 5% vanillin) was found better repellent activity than a number of commercially used repellent.

Essence of Celery Essential Oil

Celery is valued not only for its nutritional properties but also for the distinctive aroma which it owes to the presence of phthalide-rich essential oil. Thus, Apium graveolens is widely used as a spice and flavoring ingredient in food products.

·        Hazards: Skin sensitization if oxidized.

·        Cautions: Old or oxidized oils should be avoided.

Organ-specific effects

·        Adverse skin reactions: Undiluted celery seed oil was not irritating either to rabbits or to mice; tested at 4% on 25 volunteers it was neither irritating nor sensitizing. It is non-phototoxic. Autoxidation products of (þ)- limonene can cause skin sensitization.

·        Reproductive toxicity The low developmental toxicity of (þ)- limonene in rabbits and mice suggests that celery seed oil is not hazardous in pregnancy.

Systemic effects

·        Acute toxicity Celery seed oil acute oral LD50 in rats >5 g/kg; acute dermal LD50 in rabbits>5 g/kg.

·        Antioxidant/pro-oxidant activity Celery seed oil showed moderate antioxidant activity as a DPPH radical scavenger and high activity in the aldehyde/carboxylic acid assay.

·        Carcinogenic/anticarcinogenic potential Celery seed oil dose-dependently inhibited aflatoxin B1-induced adducts in calf thymus DNA, in the presence of rat liver microsomes. Celery seed oil significantly induced glutathione S-transferase activity in mouse tissues. (þ)-Limonene displays anticarcinogenic activity . Sedanolide and 3-butyl phthalide reduced the incidence of forestomach cancer in mice.
