Alchemica Botanica Yun Shan

In stock
Black Spruce
Picea mariana (black spruce) is a North American species of spruce tree in the pine family. Its sharp, bluish-green needle-like leaves are the primary source of the essential oil, which is extracted through steam distillation. Yun Shan aroma is clean and restorative, less assertive than most pine oils, with a purifying and cleansing character that tends to focus and clear the mind. It is widely used both topically and in aromatherapy. And like all essential oils, it is easy to use, fast acting and cost effective.

Common Uses
* Used in aromatherapy to open breathing passages to benefit lungs (due in part to its significant percentage of camphene).
* For respiratory concerns such as bronchitis, asthma and coughs.
* Applied in dilution to muscles and joints to relieve joint pain, muscle stiffness and spasms.
* Used to calm nervous, hyperactive individuals, and to energize those feeling lethargic (a characteristic of many woody oils).

Major known chemical constituents: Ester rich, Bornyl acetate, beta-pinene, alpha-pinene, camphene

Available in 5ml bottles
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.
