E Zhu

In stock
Curcumae Rhizoma
E Zhu essential oil is produced by steam distillation of Rhizoma Curcumae, a perennial herb common to Sichuan and Fujian provinces in China. It enters the liver and spleen channels where it acts on Qi, blood, phlegm and food stagnation. E Zhu has been characterized as “a warrior on a search and destroy mission to root out and break up serious, chronic blood and Qi stasis, palpable masses and hardenings.” Its warmth is intended to reach into the blood level to disperse, unblock and drain, while its aroma is intended to promote the flow of Qi. Like other essential oils, E Zhu 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.
