Alchemica Botanica Bi Cheng Qie

In stock
Litsea cubeba Fructus
Bi Cheng Qie oil is produced by steam distillation of Litsea Fructus, the fruit of a type of pepper tree native to the mountains of China. The lemon pepper aroma of Bi Cheng Qie penetrates warmth throughout the body, bringing Yang to stimulate the production of Yin essences in the pituitary gland, and then moves down to warm the Qi of the spleen/stomach and kidney/bladder. The oil has antifungal and antibacterial properties, and like other essential oils it is easy to use, fast acting and cost effective.

Common Uses
* Dispel cold, protect the kidneys, and promote the creation of Qi.
* Treat urinary dysfunction.
* Treat digestive disorders such as abdominal pain, hiccups, and colic.
* Warm the Middle and help reduce pain.

Major known chemical constituents: essential oils 2-6% (citral, limonene, citronella, camphene, methylheptenone, a-pinene, methylheptylketone) cubebaol

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.
