INCI Name: Acorus Calamus Root Oil
A water-loving plant native to marshy areas in the northern hemisphere, Calamus Root Oil's warm and spicy yet fresh scent makes it a unique and popular addition to cosmetic products. The primeval Egyptians trusted Calamus root as a potent aphrodisiac for its effectiveness in augmenting the health of the reproductive system. In Ayurvedic tradition, where it is known as Vacha, it is still used as an aphrodisiac. Calamus was added to wine in Europe and it also forms a part of absinthe. Calamus also has its name mentioned in the Old Testament and was talked about in Exodus as an element of the sacred anointing oil of the Bible.
Calamus Essential Oil contains powerful anti-inflammatory compounds that are known to help reduce pain, redness, and swelling due to inflammation. When used in aromatherapy, Calamus Root Oil creates a tranquilizing effect and the person using it feels a sedative effect. This essential oil effectively provides relief from pain, like chronic back pain. Calamus Oil also alleviates mental stress and rejuvenates the senses during periods of situational anxiety and/or depression.
