Zingiberis Rhizoma
 
Gan Jiang essential oil is CO2 extracted from Zingiberis Rhizomes. It is collected in winter when their energy to generate Yang and counteract cold and damp is strongest, and their affinity with the earth and metal elements clearest. It enters the heart, lung, spleen and stomach meridians, with the intended function to restore Yang, and to blend with other oils for treating cold and damp conditions.

Common Uses
* To treat cold-retained fluid accumulation in the lungs - symptoms of cough and dyspnea.
* Warm the lungs and eliminate phlegm – symptom of watery or white sputum.
* Warm the channels and stop various types of bleeding due to cold
* Warm the middle and expel cold.
* Invigorate spleen and reinforce Yang

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.
