Essential Oil Ginger Lily (15 mL)
Essential Oil Ginger Lily
Ginger Lily oil is extracted from the rhizomes of Hedychium spicatum. Used extensively in Ayurvedic medicine, Hedychium spicatum plants are native to the Punjab Himalayas where the roots (rhizomes) are a considerable article of commerce. The rhizomes contain minute amounts of odorous constituents in the form of essential oil and resin that, when dried, are used by the Hindus to burn as incense.
Ginger Lily oil, (aka Kapur Kachri or Sanna Oil), is a speciality oil exhibiting good tenacity, which has a fresh and diffusive woody-spicy aroma with Ginger and melon-like top notes that fade to a unique cool, creamy, faintly spicy, floral-woody drydown. It is an interesting choice for natural perfumers who are seeking an intriguing and uncommon material to add to their aromatic palette, being soluble in both fixed oils and 190 proof alcohol.
AROMA: Honey floral, with soft notes of mint and ginger. A fresh, woody, warm, spicy odour with a hint of cinnamon.
HISTORY OF USE
India is the largest producing country which produces ginger lily oil. Most of the varieties are cultivated in the Himalayan regions of India. It is seen in abundance in the semi-tropical and tropical regions of India. The plant is a perennial in the natural habitats but can be grown indoors as an ornamental plant in regions which are having cold climate.
Traditional Use: Ginger lily oil is a product of Asian origin especially India. But history says that it was also found in parts of America and Europe. It is also known as butterfly lily and garland lily and the oil extracted from these has been used in the manufacture of perfumes and body care products for long. India produces different varieties of ginger lily oil.
Ginger lily oil is an antibiotic, antispasmodic and anti-depressant. It assists in digestion and relieves nausea. It tones and rejuvenates the skin and reduces inflammation. Traditionally the rhizomes are used as a sedative and for analgesic and anti-inflammatory functions; for antimicrobial and antioxidant benefits; antibacterial and antifungal properties; as a pediculicidal to treat lice; and for its role as a cytotoxic, (anti-tumor), and anthelmintic, (anti-parasitic), inhibitor.
A 2012 study also concluded that the rhizomes of H. spicatum have anti-histaminic, bronchodilator, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory activities that are essential to soothe pain, inflammation, bronchial constriction, asthma, and other respiratory problems.
