What is Calamus Oil?

The steam-distilled essential oil derived from the roots of acorns calamus is called calamus oil. 

The parent plant is often also known as sweet flag hence you would find it being referred to as sweet flag oil in a lot of regions of the world. Don't get confused with the names, they all refer to the same thing. 

I call calamus an aromatic wonder, quite like a whimsical artist in the world of essential oils. 

It is bold, carefree, not so common and complex. The aroma makes it highly prestigious in the perfume industry while its therapeutic properties have. carved a name for it in the skincare and homeopathy / Pharma industry. 

Smell and scent profile

Calamus root essential oil has a complex, woody, spicy yet sweet smell. It has a base note and the aroma strength is medium. 

History and Cultivation

Calamus traces its historical roots in the ancient times where it was used for its therapeutic benefits in Ayurveda - ancient Indian science of medicine. It was called Vacha, which implies that it was helpful in coping with stress and enhancing cognitive abilities. 

Similar references are found in Chinese medicine too. 

When we talk about its cultivation and care, it would be safe to use the adjective 'tough' to describe it. It grows on its own and can thrive in various conditions with little to no care.
