The Tingling Healer: Sichuan Pepper Essential Oil
Also known as #PricklyAsh , #Timur or #SzechuanPepper , the entire plant is known for its medicinal benefits in wholesome healing and is widely found in Bhutanese cuisines as well. The plant produces small, brownish-red berries that are dried and used as a spice in cooking. Sichuan pepper has a unique, complex flavour that is described as being both spicy and numbing. It is a key ingredient in traditional Bhutanese cuisine and is often used to flavour savoury dishes such as spicy hot soups. The spice has a unique, numbing and tingling sensation on the tongue, and is often used in combination with chilli peppers to create a harmonious balance of heat and flavour.
Sichuan pepper essential oil is extracted from the seeds and husks of the Sichuan pepper plant. The oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-bacterial properties. It is often used in traditional medicine to relieve pain, improve circulation, and treat various skin conditions.
