Words by Anny Schneider

A single reed with a very aromatic rhizome, the Calamus (or sweet flag) was always used by the First Nations to link together (by mutual agreement ...), the various participants of an assembly.

Traditional European herbalists used it as digestive and antiputrid in case of intoxication or food abuse, cleaning the intestines as well as the kidneys.

Note: because of its high concentration of beta-asarone, limit its use to short courses.

It also bears these other common names: beautiful angelica or fragrant reed.

Origin of this essential oil

This organic essential oil of reed acorus from Nepal is distilled from the roots of the plant.
