Qing Pi - Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae Viride, 5ml
Steam distilled Pericarpium Citri reticulatae Viride - 5ml
The fresh, fruity top note of our Qing Pi essential oil first delights the senses freeing up feelings of constraint and anger, then its bitter and sour undertones sink deep and get to work, fiercely breaking up stagnation.
Qing Pi’s unripe green color, plus sour flavor and fragrance indicate its particular affinity to the wood element - Liver and Gallbladder. It’s youthful immaturity accounts for its fierce, energetic character. Qing Pi’s classical Chinese medicine channel affinities also include the Triple Burner and Stomach where it’s bitterness descends counterflow.
Practitioners may consider a compress blending Qing Pi with Chai Hu or Xiang Fu essential oils for clumping and pain associated with liver Qi stasis and adding E Zhu essential oil if complicated with blood stasis as in the case of fixed, palpable breast lumps for example.
Qing Pi in combination with Mu Xiang essential oil may reinforce its stomach harmonizing action.
