White Pine Needle
Song Jie is the wood knot (or node) of the Chinese red pine, praised for its medicinal value, which is native to northern China, Inner Mongolia and northern Korea. The best quality knots are reddish brown with high oil content. Song Jie essential oil is steam-distilled and exhibits a fresh pine resin aroma. When applied topically it releases the nodes’ traditional energy intended to ease painful Bi syndromes. Used in aromatherapy, especially when diffused, Song Jie brings the added benefit of its lung/ kidney affinity to help descend the Lung Qi to the kidneys. 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.
