Hu Lu Ba essential oil is CO2 extracted from Fenugreek seeds. It enters the kidney meridian, warming kidney-Yang and dispersing cold and dampness by enhancing the functions of kidney and liver channels. It has been called “an herb of the right kidney and the gate of vitality.” Commonly used in TCM to treat kidney problems and reproductive conditions. May also affect the thyroid gland by elevating T3 and T4 and balancing the Adrenals. And like all essential oils Hu Lu Ba oil 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.
