Dalbergiae odiferae Lignum
The fragrant, highly prized wood of Dalbergiae Odiferae, from which Jiang Xiang oil is steam distilled, is native only to Hainan Island, China. Its pungent, resinous wood aroma opens the sinuses, stimulates the eyes and forehead and gives one a refreshing and soothing feeling. It is associated with the liver, spleen and stomach meridians, and has spicy and warm properties. Its main intended functions are to invigorate the blood, remove stagnations, and help move the Qi downward. May also act as an inflammatory, hemostatic and alalgesic agent. And like all essential oils, it is easy to use, fast acting and cost effective.

Alchemica Botanica was started by Evelyn Robert, L.Ac. It grew out of her deep respect for Chinese medicinal herbs developed over more than 30 years as a TCM practitioner - and chiefly inspired by Daoist Master Dr. Jeffrey Yuen whose teaching on the use of essential oils in TCM has guided practitioners into new dimensions of treatment.

From the beginning Evelyn’s search for reputable extractors in China and testing oils has been a slow but important process. She began visiting large and small extractors, distillers, and perfumers who were enthusiastic and dedicated to producing high quality essential oils from the finest authentic herbs. Her suppliers gradually fell into place – among them a factory/plantation using CO2 extraction in Guangdong Province, a small family-run steam distillery in Jiangxi Province, and a large distillery in southern China focusing on the Chrysanthemum scent.

In the end Evelyn’s persistence paid off. Alchemica Botanica TCM Essential Oils became the first line of essential oils dedicated purely to traditional Chinese herbs and substances, intended for therapeutic use in acupuncture and Chinese medicine in general. It fills a void in currently available essential oils by providing practitioners and their patients with authentic Chinese medicinal herb essences that are easy to use, fast acting and cost effective.
