Aromatherapy Functions in Chinese Medicine
Stimulates Fat Breakdown; Improves Oily Skin. Its stimulating effect is gentle, slow, deep, and long lasting without causing the irritation that the quicker acting Thyme or Oregano will produce because of their strongly stimulating phenol-containing oils.
Tonifies and Boosts Lung Qi; Warms the Lung: respiratory and genito-urinary infections especially from Cold Damp.
Fortifies the Will; Rectifies Wisdom: inspires self-control in negative or threatening situations.
Tonifies Kidney (and Spleen) Yang: fatigue, lower back pain, poor concentration.
Disinhibits Damp: weight gain, cellulite, edema; abdominal distention.
