Du Huo
(Angelicae pubescentis Radix)

from 12.00

CO2 extracted Angelicae pubescentis Radix - 5ml
"Self-reliant existence"

The heavy bitter sweetness and spicy edge of this Du Huo essential oil is deeply satisfying. Its aroma brings moisture to the eyes, a warm tingling to the ears and vitality to the knees. It's name "self reliant existence" refers to the strength of the plant's stalk, which stands straight up and is not shaken by the wind. Du Huo essential oil strengthens the will and builds self reliance. This, in turn, reflects Du Huo's actions to resolve chronic wind damp conditions, strengthen the spine, legs and joints and overcome disabilities.

In the early classics of Chinese medicine, Du Huo was said to have a strong association with the Chong Mai and used to treat "Running piglet Qi" as in cases of tetany or epilepsy.  Applied to Kidney points along the Chong Mai, it may regulate the "Sea of Blood" and help to overcome fear.  

Our Du Huo oil is CO2 extracted from the root of Angelica pubescentis, a thick, oily root with strong fragrance. The best medicinal quality called "Chuan Du Huo"  grows in Sichuan and Hubei provinces and is collected either in early spring before sprouting or late autumn after stem and leaves have withered when the plant's energies are focused on the root. 

Du Huo invigorates the circulation of Qi and blood. It breaks up blood clots and inhibits platelet aggregation.  Classically, it was used as a poultice for wound healing because of its anti-sceptic and analgesic properties.

For use In dermatology, it's activity brings circulation outward, and moves blood to expel wind to relieve itching. May be blended and applied topically with Jing Jie oil for rash and itching, or combined with Chuan Xiong oil for aches and pain due to wind cold and dampness.
