A secret ingredient in massage oil blends, Galangal Root essential oil is a must to any EO collection.
Galangal Root essential oil is extracted from the stem of a plant in the ginger family, which also includes Turmeric and Cardamom. Galangal is best known as a popular culinary seasoning in many Asian cuisines where it adds heavenly flavor and aroma to Thai and Vietnamese soups and other foods. This aromatic botanic is closely related to ginger, being slightly larger and woodier.
Galangal Root juice is combined with lime and other herbs in Southeast Asia to make a tonic beverage for general wellness support. Like ginger and other herbs in the Zingiberaceae family, it is often used in culinary dishes for healthy digestion. The essential oil is pungent and useful in massage blends where it is often so employed in Southeast Asia.
It is distilled from the rhizome (underground stem) of the plant.
