Galangal essential oil has a wonderful fresh, clean aroma with camphor-wood- cineole notes. The dry out is warm, sweet & spicy. It is used widely in Southeast Asia for helping with digestive disorders and as a powerful anti inflammative for cases of arthritis. Though not widely used in perfumery, I think it has much potential in this area for some interesting exotic “Oriental” type perfume blends. Galangal is reputed throughout history as being a potent aphrodisiac as well. One smell of this fragrant oil and you’ll see why.

Bottled a new batch of Galangal up the other day after bottling some Cocoa and felt like I was floating in heaven. Think I’ll be making a new perfume soon. Really yummy nice!
