History of Calamus Root

Far from a common botanical name, calamus root (Acorus calamus) has been a presence in human traditions for generations. Included as a component of holy anointing oil, this water-loving plant is linked to spirituality and thoughtfulness, aspects that have also made it appreciated in Ayurvedic practices that bridge the intangible and the physical. Extracted from the base of the marshy plant, calamus root oil carries an unusual warmth in its fragrance, mingling spiciness with fresh, green notes that truly set it apart.
