GALANGAL ROOT (Alpina Officinalis / Galangal ), India

Our Galangal oil is extracted by steam distillation from the aromatic rhizomes (root) of the Galangal plant, which is a herb belonging to the species Alpinia – the ginger family. The oil is light yellow to olive brown in colour, with a fresh, woody and spicy fragrance.

Galangal is used in cooking, especially in Indonesian and Thai cuisines, but the oil has also traditionally been used in African and Ayurvedic medicine, as well as many other cultures. It can be used to treat congestion, skin problems, and is reputed to be effective in the treatment of bronchitis. Like ginger, It is supportive in helping to reduce vomiting and constipation, and to help with travel sickness, and is also believed to be effective as a medicine for ulcers and stomach inflammations.

Properties of the oil include: Antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, aphrodisiac, carminative, balsamic, diuretic, expectorant, restorative, stomachic, tonic, emmenagogue, hypotensive and cicatrizant.
