The volatile oil has a very strong aromatic flavour, which chiefly contains d-limonene and sedanolides responsible for the characteristic flavour. Celery Oleoresin is also used as stimulant, carminative, nervine, sedative and even in tonic. It is also used to flavor soft drinks and unpleasant medicaments.
