Bi Cheng Qie - Litsea Cubeba, 5ml
Steam Distilled Litsea cubeba Fructus - 5ml
The sunny, lemon pepper aroma of Bi Cheng Qie seems to penetrate warmth from head to toe. It first rises up to the pituitary gland, bringing yang to stimulate the production of yin essences and then descends, warming and freeing the middle and lower burners, particularly the Qi of the Spleen/Stomach and Kidney/ Urinary Bladder.
Litsea Fructus is a spicy tree fruit of the pepper family. The best quality is considered to be the large,oily, and intensely aromatic fruit from Lingui in Guangxi province. Our Bi Cheng Qie oil is produced by steam distillation.
Litsea Cubeba essential oil has anti fungal and antibacterial properties. Caprylic acid, a popular ingredient in topical anti fungal preparations, is one of the fatty acids found in Litsea seeds.
