Curcuma amada, extracted from dried rhizomes organically grown in India, extracted in Germany. 10% dilution in Fractionated Coconut Oil.

Our amazing Mango Ginger CO2 extract at a pourable 10% dilution in Fractionated Coconut oil for your convenience.  This is still a bit too strong to use directly, without further dilution.  We suggest blending with equal parts St. John's Wort Infused Oil for a 5% dilution, appropriate for a small area, or diluting even lower for a larger area. 

For centuries, the roots/rhizomes of the Mango Ginger spice have been used in tea and other concoctions as herbal remedies throughout East Asia. While a member of the Ginger (Zingiberaceae) genus, Mango Ginger (Curcuma amada), is actually part of the Turmeric species.

Our CO2 extracted oil is very thick, a deep reddish brown color, with a mild aroma Michelle describes as, “Taking a bite of ginger at a sushi bar followed immediately by a drink from a fruity tea.” (That is a flavor/taste, but scent and taste are so closely intertwined, we do get what she is saying about it!) In other words, more mango than ginger, (no raw fish!), subtly fruity with a teeny tiny hint of earthy herbaceousness.

Although anecdotally known as an herbal remedy for flatulence, dysentery, various stomach ailments; valuable research is revealing the CO2 really shines as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory, possibly due to the beta caryophyllene content. (Christi has been experimenting with a small bottle of it since January for pain relief in her “trouble” knee, added to our Arnica Massage Oil with more than satisfactory results.)

One note on working with the CO2—it is thick and paste-like, so must be warmed for use. (Not as thick as German Chamomile or Calendula, much less so, but you will have to gently warm it for a few minutes or use a pipette to pull from the bottle.)

The producer says it is anti-microbial, anti-oxidative, and anti-allergenic. The main naturally occurring components are monoterpenes (alpha/beta pinene, camphene, b-myrcene), monoterpene hydrocarbons (Limonene, Ocimene), and of course, sesquiterpene beta caryophyllene.

One promising area with future potential is in cancer research. It is “early days,” but if you visit this webpage, you will see just one such example of ongoing research that is truly remarkable. A search of PubMed reveals a number of exciting studies utilizing these precious rhizomes and we look forward to exploring its uses.

As it is a newer and “time” untested extract, we would suggest avoiding use during pregnancy, by nursing mothers, and for children age 6 and under. Always dilute for use on skin. Not for internal use. Please note, Tisserand’s Essential Oil Safety 2nd Ed, shows no known contraindications. My instinct is that this oil has not been tested for irritation, toxicity, etc. Hence the safety warnings we give.

Mark Webb, of AromaMedix.com, in his recent CO2 course, recommended theuse of Mango Ginger extraxt in topical dermatological products for treating allegic and anti-inflammatory conditions.

Customer Reviews

  • 5 One of my favorites for pain and inflammation.

    Posted by Christina from Tennessee on 04/09/2018 Verified Purchase

    This is one I’ll never be without, I’m so glad someone shared a sample with me because it’s not necessarily something I would have looked twice at but it’s one of my staples for pain and inflammation blends (along with plai) it’s a lovely bonus that it smells very pleasant - I get a very subtle fruity spice scent. I recommend it often and I’m so glad I found it, the last person I shared a sample with immediately purchased two bottles because she fell in love as well.
