Chuan Xiong
(Ligustici wallicii Rhizoma)

from 12.00

CO2 extracted Ligustici wallicii Rhizoma - 5ml
(Sichuan Lovage Rhizome)

Chuan Xiong's rich buttery aroma, reminiscent of fresh celery and chive, refreshes the eyes, tingles the scalp, frees the neck and spreads throughout the body causing it to want to move and release. Ligustici Chuanxiong is a plant native to China's Sichuan Provence. The medicinal rhizome is collected in the summer when the nodal points on the stem protrude and are light purple in color as a signal that its blood vitalizing properties are at their height.

The name Chuan Xiong traditionally means overworked and exhausted dome/sky referring to its special ability to rise up, benefiting the head and brain for treatment of all types of headache. Overall, Chuan Xiong essential oil is useful to invigorate the blood, free the movement of the Qi, expel wind and stop pain. The twelfth-century writer Zhang Yuan-Su described its scope: "Above it moves through the head and eyes while below it moves through the sea of blood.”

For headaches caused by wind consider using with Jing Jie oil. For blood deficiency and stagnation type headaches may be combined with Dang Gui oil.

Z-ligustilide, an essential oil extract found in both Chuan Xiong (Ligustici Wallicii) and Dang Gui (Angelicae sinensis), has been shown to have broad pharmaceutical applications in treating cardio-vascular disease and ischemic brain injury and has recently been studied in connection to Glioblastoma multiforme.
