Alchemica Botanica Long Nao

In stock
Alchemica Botanica’s organic Long Nao oil is steam distilled from the sap of dryobalanops aromatica trees growing on the distiller's land in Jiangxi, China. This variety is completely natural, and considered superior to the synthetic Borneol commonly available today. It has an acrid, bitter taste and cool properties associated with the heart, lung, liver and spleen meridians. Its resinous, acrid aroma rises to the top of head leaving a lasting, concentrated sensation around the bai hui acupoint. 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.
