sand ginger rhizome oil
Kaempferia Galanga is a small tropical plant of the ginger family and it is cultivated quite commonly throughout India and Indonesia, partly for the production of essential oil from the rhizomes of the plant, partly for use as a local spice. The rhizomes are steam distilled in India to yield a yellowish or pale amber somewhat viscous oil which deposits a substantial amount of crystals on standing. Oil of Kaempferia Galanga has a sweet woody, warm, balsamic, somewhat spicy odor of great tenacity. The flavor is less pleasant, camphoraceous, burning, yet very rich and aromatic.
