Perilla / Shiso Essential Oil
Benefits & How To Use
Perilla / Shiso Perilla frutescens (2725) (also known as Shiso)
Shiso is used as a herb extensively in Chinese and Japanese medicine where it is considered a ‘transformer’. The essential oil has some very unusual compounds and its aroma is hard to describe, but for me has a fresh earthy quality. The oil has been researched extensively, and is famous for its anti-inflammatory qualities. It is also a useful support for the joints and muscles, and digestive system.
This is a pure therapeutic-quality aromatherapy essential oil from Japan, and is obtained from the leaves.

I find Oshadhi oils to be simply exquisite. Their fragrances are so rich and full bodied. It is easy to immediately discern the difference their insistence on extraction by slow distillation makes. The larger molecules make the oils like beautifully aged, smooth fine wines! Last week I ordered 1ml o ...
