Steam distilled Semen Biotae orientalis - 5ml
aka Platycladi Semen, Arborvitae Seed

Our Bai Zi Ren essential oil is extracted by steam distillation from the seeds of a north western Chinese evergreen conifer commonly known as Arborvitae, meaning tree of life illustrating its enduring association with long life and vitality.

The Shen Nong Ben Cao Jing Du explains, "The evergreen receives the resoluteness of heaven and earth and remains unchanging; it goes through winter retaining its green lushness and thus can pacify the Heart Spirit and contain the Heart Qi. Its steadfastness also makes it impervious to invasion by evil Qi's floating fire."

The essence of the small, oily, yellow seeds of Biotae Orientalis, with its spicy, bitter and grounding aroma, opens the heart, the ear orifice and hearing and rises through the nose to activate the pineal gland which the philosopher Renee Descartes called "the principal seat of the soul" and viewed as the third eye.

The pineal produces melatonin which affects the modulation of sleep patterns in both seasonal and circadian rhythms. Indeed, this Bai Zi Ren essential oil has proven to be effective and fast acting in cases of insomnia. Li Shi Zhen's Ben Cao Gang Mu explains that Bai Zi Ren "nourishes Heart Qi, moistens dryness, Quiets Hun and settles Po, boosts the Zhi (will) and pacifies the Shen (spirit).”

Bai Zi Ren be blended with Wu Wei Zi oil for deficiency type night sweats and disturbed sleep or with Dang Gui oil for palpitations, dizziness and forgetfulness.
