Angelicae pubescentis Radix
 
Du Huo oil is CO2 extracted from the root of Angelica pubescentis, a thick, oily root with strong fragrance that grows in Sichuan and Hubei provinces of China. The bitter sweetness and spicy character of the oil can be deeply satisfying, and its aroma may bring tears to the eyes, a warm tingling to the ears and vitality to the knees. Entering kidney and bladder meridians, Du Huo’s main functions are intended to dispel wind, and eliminate dampness and cold to stop pain. It is powerful, fast acting, easy to use 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.
