Also known as aucklandia, costus comes from the plant saussurea costus, a perennial that grows to about six feet in height and is native to northern India and Pakistan. It has irregular, triangular-shaped leaves and dark blue or black florets, with brownish fruit. The plant’s root is harvested and dried for use in herbal remedies, but the rest of the plant is used for a variety of substances. In Asia, Costus Root Extract is used by the food industry to flavor sweets and soft drinks, and as an ingredient in perfumes, shampoos and hair dyes.
Costus Root Extract can be used to relieve pain by promoting the flow of qi, and to improve digestion by reinforcing the spleen function. Costus root extract helps relieve epigastric distension. Costus root extract is also used to treat the abdominal pain, diarrhea, and tenesmus by nourishing the spleen and removing stasis in stomach and intestines.
