Calamus is a member of the  Acoraceae family thought to have originated in Asia. It has been used for both aromatic and medicinal purposes since antiquity. The British would place the plant on the floor of dwellings for a pleasing olfactory quality. It was mentioned in the Papyrus of Egypt for its aromatic qualities.

In contemporary alternative medicine, calamus essential oil is thought to have sedative and diuretic properties. In Ayurveda, the plant is used to mitigate the negative side effects of hallucinogens. It is reputed to improve memory retention and allay vertigo and headaches. It does contain a substance called asorone which is considered toxic, therefore this oil should be used with care.

Calamus essential oil is a unique addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, and aromatherapy.

This oil smells so bad.
Jul 31, 2021


This oil stinks so bad I can't stand it. I watched the video. It's doesn't have a woody smell to me and I can't see using it in perfume. I also googled it and read it is supposed to have a sweet pleasant smell.


This oil smells so bad. I bought it to blend with other oils mentioned in scripture by using olive oil for the carrier. I added more oils to the blend to try to balance out the smell but it is overbearing and impossible. I am now using it in my homemade bug spray. I won't be purchasing this again. ???? I don't even like using it in the bug spray because of the malodorous smell.

Biblical Oil Worth Trying!
Jun 4, 2018
Another oil mentioned in the Bible I wanted to try. The first few times I really really liked it and thought it would be in my top three favorites, but now doesn't have the extraordinariness as the first time. Not bad, still good, but just doesn't stand out like at first. (N.B.-This review is based on the 1ml sample size when first released. I love the size, that it is glass, and has an orifice reducer. This is much better than the thin long glass vial samples from other companies that don't pour out. Until it all comes out all over, and all at once, and your sample is wasted after just trying to get a drop or two. This was much better but still very very difficult to even get a drop out, especially exactly where you want it. So no waste but still frustrating. If the reducer was improved it would be perfect as the size is excellent.)

I got this oil as the herb is used in TCM and I am in school for acupuncture and TCM, going to see how it fares against the indications the herb is used for. EXCITED
