Steam distilled Herba Artemisiae annuae - 5ml
(Sweet Wormwood)

The clean, sharply bitter and sweet aroma of our steam distilled Qing Hao essential oil clears and cools the eyes, the forehead and the mind. It vibrates strongly into the blood level bringing about a refreshing feeling of renewal. 

Artemisia annua has dark green fern like leaves, a yellow-green stem and intense fragrance. For optimal medicinal properties, this fast growing plant is cut before it's bright yellow flowers bloom in the spring. The best quality grows in Beijing, Chongching, Chengdu, and Suzhou.

"It's sprout appears very early so that it receives the Qi of the spring and thus it enters both the Liver and Gallbladder channels to clear heat from the blood." ..."and treats heat remaining within the bones and joints..." (Ben Cao Zheng Yi)

The use of artemisinin, a major constituent of Qing Hao, in treatment of malaria is well-established.  Essential oil of Qing Hao has been shown to have powerful anti viral properties an well as expectorant, antitussive and anti asthmatic effects. (Chinese Medical Herbology and Pharmacology, Chen and Chen)

As its English name, Wormwood, implies this essential oil can eliminate worms. Consider blending with Ding Xiang (clove) and Su He Xiang (styrax) for intestinal worms or topically for ring worm.

Practitioners may consider a 10% dilution of Qing Hao essential oil in Calophyllum oil or coconut oil as a topical salve for herpes.
