Our organically crafted Galangal Essential Oil is steam distilled from the fresh rhizomes of the Alpinia galanga plant growing in Indonesia. Galangal is best known as a popular culinary seasoning in many Asian cuisines where it adds heavenly flavor and aroma to Thai and Vietnamese soups and other foods. In Indonesia's traditional herbal lore, the rhizomes are used in jamu preparations - herbal drinks consumed daily primarily to maintain wellbeing, for rejuvenation, and to strengthen the sexual organs.

There are two types of Galangal used in aromatherapy:
Greater Galangal also known as Siam Ginger or Thai Ginger from Alpinia galanga L.
Lesser Galangal also known as Chinese Ginger from Alpinia officinarum Hance.

True Galangal oil only comes from the Alpinia genus and should not be confused with False Galangal from Kaemferia galangal.
