CO2 extracted Magnolia officinalis Cortex - 5ml
Magnolia bark

Hou Po’s fragrance is immediately bitter and sharply pungent then gradually opens with a deep, syrupy sweetness and warmth.

Hou Po’s affinity is to the Earth and Metal elements where it’s bitter warmth acts strongly to descend Qi and dry dampness. Because of these qualities, it is used in Chinese medicine to relieve stagnation and accumulation in the digestive tract as well as coughing and wheezing due to phlegm obstructing the lungs.

Magnolia Officinials is a deciduous tree native to the mountains and valleys of Sichuan, Hubei and other provinces of China. The highly aromatic bark used in traditional Chinese medicine is stripped from the stems, branches and roots Collected during April to June. The thick, smooth bark, heavy with oil, has a purplish color on the inner side with a crystal like sheen.

Practitioners may consider combining Hou Po with Qing Pi essential oil as a top note compliment in blends aimed at breaking up accumulations.
