Chrysanthemi Flos
 
In China the chrysanthemum, which blooms in late autumn and early winter, has long symbolized nobility, elegance and endurance. The flower was said to be imbued with "the soul of the sky and earth.” Revered for its medicinal properties for over 2 millennia (and cited in the Shennong Ben Cao) it was thought to facilitate the Qi and blood, lighten the body and prevent aging.

The light, heady aroma of this pure steam-distilled Ju Hua essential oil is sweet floral with a clean, bitter edge. It cools and clears the head and eyes while leaving a fresh taste in the mouth. Its nature both ascends and descends. These qualities, along with it’s affinity to the lung and liver, help to disperse wind heat in the lungs and to cool and drain liver fire, extinguish liver wind and benefit liver yin and blood. And like other essential oils, it is easy to use, fast acting and cost effective.

Common Uses
* For wind-heat affecting the eyes, or yin deficiency of the liver and kidneys that can cause blurry vision, dizziness, and spots in front of the eyes.
* For wind-heat syndromes with fever, headache, and red, painful and dry eyes.
* To treat colds, flu and skin sores.
* Often used in combination with other essential oils such as Ju Jai. Bo He and Chai Hu to enhance treatment.

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.
