Alchemica Botanica Su He Xiang

In stock
Liquidambar orientalis Styrax
Su He Xiang essential oil is CO2 extracted from the resin of the bark of Liqiudamber Orientalis (Styrax), a deciduous tree native to the eastern Mediterranean and cultivated in the Chinese provinces of Guangxi and Yunnan. Its affinity is to the heart and spleen meridians, and its intense, complex fragrance (balsamic sweetness and sharp, terpenic undertones) awakens and stimulates the sense organs and opens up stagnation. Su He Xiang also possesses anti-fungal properties and, like all essential oils, is easy to use, fast acting and cost effective.

Common Uses

* Stifling sensations, Cold fullness, chest and abdominal pain, and CoBiliary colic. Also used topically for chilblains.

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.
