Hydacheim Essential Oils
These essential oils originated in India and, after being derived through steam distillation from the flowers of the plant, end up having a thin consistency, a color that is olive-brown or olive-green, and an aroma that is spicy, warm, woody, sweet, and floral. Historically, an anti-nausea agent was extracted from the root of a plant referred to as a spiked ginger lily. This particular use is referred to as Ayurvedic medicine which is used to treat a plethora of symptoms and conditions. The spiked ginger lily, or hydacheim plant, has leaves that are approximately four inches wide and 16 inches long. It can grow up to about three feet tall and, interestingly, the flower’s spikes have their own individual (additional) flowers.
