Perilla essential oil is indeed the best of all essential oils, because unlike many others it does focus on precisely any one infection or problem but instead deals with myriad of them and is to quite great extents, successful at them.
Perilla is a genus a herb that is a member of the mint family, Lamiaceae. Perilla lives and grows in mild climates throughout the world although it is mainly grown in India and East Asia. In North America, Perilla is increasingly commonly called by its Japanese name, shiso, and in Nepal and parts of India, it is called silam.
The leaves of Perilla resemble stinging nettle leaves, and it’s essential oils produce a strong taste that is comparable to mint or fennel. It is considered rich in minerals and vitamins, and has very important anti-inflammatory properties and immune modulatory actions which are thought to help preserve and sterilize foods.
In traditional Chinese medicine (called Kampo medicine in Japan) herbal remedies have been utilized empirically for thousands of years for the treatment of a wide variety of clinical disorders.
Preparations such as Hange-Koboku-to, Yoku-Kan-san, Saiboku-to (which contains Perilla), and Kami-Kihi-to, for example, have been historically prescribed for clinical depression, anxiety-related disorders such as –
- Anxiety neurosis
- Anxiety hysteria
- Thrombotic stroke
- Gastrointestinal complaints
Saiboku-to, one of the most popular of these Chinese herbal medicines, has been shown in laboratory experiments to be effective for the treatment of asthma and allergic disorders. Evidence from studies also show that Saiboku-to is able to relieve anxiety and nervous tension.
Perilla assists in the management and relief of the symptoms of allergy/atopy and associated inflammation, respiratory and skin manifestations resulting from an increase in aspects of the immune system that drive allergies (the Th2 immune cells). Perilla supports immune function, to help reduce the duration and symptoms of hayfever, and allergy (Th2 dominant conditions), and enhances antimicrobial activity (Th1 immune cells). The natural antioxidants in Perilla also act to decrease the risk of cell damage attributable to free radicals caused by allergies and asthma.
