Galangal is a yellow brown liquid distilled from dried roots of a reed like plant reaching a mature height of one meter. The plant is found mainly in India. In the Middle Ages its invigorating scent was used as a sexual stimulant and was considered magical as it reportedly attracted wealth, and warded off evil spirits.
In the 13th century it was used as a tea by the Turkic people and a stimulant in horses by the Arabs. In the east it was used as a snuff for nasal infections. The market for this oil is quite large and can be found in many kitchens for adding flavor to food.This rich source of iron and vitamins A and C also contains anti oxidants which are useful in removing toxins in the body.
As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier.)
