Zi Su Zi
CO2 extracted Fructus Perillae (Perilla Fruit, Perilla Seed) - 5ml
The subtle aroma of Zi Su Zi essential oil is rich and nutty with a slightly bitter base and a light pungent top. Its energy travels downward from the nose into the chest where it opens and stimulates.
Zi Su Zi very specifically benefits the Lung. Its function in Chinese medicine is to stop coughing and wheezing by dissolving phlegm and directing the Lung Qi down ward. It is widely used in traditional herbal formulas for asthmatic and cough conditions of various types.
As an example, in the case of coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and chest discomfort due to cold phlegm obstructing the lungs, practitioners may consider diffusing a blend of Zi Su Zi essential oil with oils of Xing Ren (Semen Armenicae), Hou Po (Cortx Magnolia officinalis) and White Pine or Gui Zhi/Gui Ye (Cinnamon twig and leaf).
To add a more aromatic Lung opening effect for diffusers think of blending with Eucalyptus or Pine.
