GALANGAL Alpinia officinarum
This Root is steam distilled in Indonesia. It is better known in the culinary arts as a spice, particularly in curries.
Perhaps this is why it is regarded as a digestive aid. Often spices are utilized for much more than just the flavor they impart.
That is the beauty of the botanical world with wonder-some plants offering components of scent and flavor along with their
nutritional values. It is interesting that I was drawn to choose this aromatic when I was feeling rather odd in my gut. This
is a plant oil I use little of and rarely reach for it.
I thank this plant for calling me to it’s attention. I honor intuition in my studies. This journey with the plants is truly
amazing. I pray to be guided and I am . I pray for others to be guided by opening up with Nature’s Spirit. In this case it was
the vibrational energy that drew me in. Honestly the scent is one I am not usually resonating with, but with the need of a more
medicinal plant it spoke clearly.
As a wellness component in personal care treatments Galangal is regarded as a skin reparative; easing eruptions . Addition
of this essential oil in a formulation will benefit the blend by assisting the balance the lymphatic flow. Galangal is sometimes used as a parfum component, particularly in India. It does have a holding power as a rhizome. It will certainly lend an Earthy aroma and help a blend stick together.
