Botanical Name: Acorus Calamus
Description & Extraction:
Calamus is a red-like aquatic plant growing to about 1m high, with sword-shaped leaves and small greenish-yellow flowers. it grows on the margins of lakes and streams with a long-branched rhizome immersed in the mud. Its erect, sword-shaped leaves bear considerable resemblance to those of the Yellow Flag, hence its equally common popular name of 'Sweet Flag,' though it is not related botanically to the Iris. All parts of the plant have a peculiar, agreeable fragrance. Calamus was largely grown for its rhizomes in the East and the Indian rhizomes were imported extensively long after it was common in Europe. Calamus essential oil, Acorus calamus, blends well with the following essential oils: Cananga, cinnamon, labdanum, olibanum, oregano, patchouli, cedarwood, Amyris, spice, and other oriental bases.
It is extracted by the steam distillation process.
