Alchemica Botanica Jing Jie

Schizonepetae Herba
Jing Jie essential oil is steam distilled at a small family-run distillery in the countryside near Ji'an, China where its herbal source, Schizonepetae, grows wild. Its distinct, peppery aroma opens the nose, hones in on the chest and quickens the heart. With affinities to lung and liver, Jing Jie essential oil affects wei and ying qi, and is intended to vent wind, move blood and relax sinews. Like all essential oils Jing Jie is fast acting, easy to use and very 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.
