Muxiang is the completely dry root of the seasonal herb of Asteraceae Aucklandialappa Decne. It is primarily created in Yunnan, likewise referred to as Yunmuxiang. The components in woody fragrance primarily consist of Costus Oil, sterols, alkaloids, and also natural acids. Medicinal as well as pharmacodynamic researches in recent years have discovered that the main energetic ingredient of Costus Oil is a blend of various sesquiterpenoids mainly composed of Costunolide as well as Dehydrocostuslactone. It has noticeable pharmacological impacts in anti-inflammation, anti-tumor, anti-virus, restraint of vasoconstriction and also immune law.
The scent contains volatile oil, and its active ingredient is mainly sesquiterpene lactone, which has the features of loosening up smooth muscle, soothing spasm and reasonably lowering high blood pressure. Costus Oil is a tan thick unpredictable crucial oil with an unique woody and also scorched aroma. The powder of this product is brownish purple or yellow-colored brown. It is soluble in ethanol, many non-volatile oils and also mineral oils, as well as insoluble in glycerin as well as propylene glycol. It is obtained from the dried out (shade-dried) root of Coriandrum sativum, a seasonal herb of the category Coriandrum, smashed, steam distilled or extracted with a solvent, and after that distilled from the resinous extract.

Chemical Composition of Costus Oil

The main component of Costus Oil is tertiary nerolidol (nerolidol), also known as nerolidol, which has the highest relative percentage content. Studies have shown that the main components of balsamic oil are alcohol compounds, of which nerolidol, nerolidol and nerolidol Isomers accounted for 93.64% of the total oil. In addition, 13 kinds of chemical components were identified from the volatile oil extracted by the method of steam distillation (SD method), the main component was tertiary nerolidol, and the relative percentage was 57.36%. The extract was analyzed by CO2 supercritical extraction method (SFE-CO2 method) and GC-MS combined analysis technology, and 52 kinds of chemical components were separated, of which nerolidol (38.24% ), 2,4-dimethyl-2,4-heptadienal (25.826%), 2,4-dimethyl-2,6-heptadienal (18.477%).

Studies have also shown that the main component of balsamic is 2,4-dimethyl-2,4-heptadienal (about 31.6%), followed by nerolidol (about 23.9%); research has shown that caryophyllene oxide (54.22 %) content is the highest, while nerolidol content is 10.22%. Due to different varieties, origins and extraction processes, the total amount of Costus Oil and the percentage of nerolidol vary greatly. The pharmacopoeia records that the source of the fragrance is the leguminous plant Dalbergia, but the folks also have the Rutaceae plant Shanyou, Hainan Dalbergia, Indian Dalbergia, and Indian Red Sandalwood for use as fragrances.

The content of different varieties of Costus Oil and the content of main components in the oil were compared by GC-MS. As a result, the volatile oil contained in the medicinal material of Dalbergia balata was 3.61%-3.79%, the volatile oil in the imported balsamic product was 0.81%-3.61%, the volatile oil in Indian red sandalwood was about 0.43%, the volatile oil in Gongjia was about 0.10%, and the volatile oil in mountain orange was about 0.07%. The volatile oil content of Indian Dalbergia is about 0.06%, and the volatile oil of Hainan Dalbergia is very small. Nerolidol accounted for 45.23% to 69.13% of the volatile oil content, and no nerolidol was detected in the volatile oils of capers and gongjia. It can be seen that the quality of Dalbergia is the best; Indian Dalbergia, Hainan Dalbergia (low oil content), Gongjia and Shanyou are not suitable for Dalbergia. In addition, it was denied that the mountain oil mandarin orange was the source of balsamic fragrance from two aspects of the source research and the crude drug identification.

Agarwood often grows in middle-altitude areas, likes light, and has strong stress resistance. It is mostly distributed in semi-deciduous monsoon forests and sparse shrub forests. It is a unique plant in Hainan, and it was later introduced to Guangzhou, Guangxi, Fujian and other places for cultivation. Due to the different climate and environment in the regions where the medicinal materials are grown, the content of Costus Oil varies greatly.

Costus Oil Uses

  1. Costus Oil is used as a raw material for soaps and fragrances.
  2. Costus Oil is used in cosmetics, detergents, aromatherapy, insecticides and medical health care products.

Application of Costus Oil

Chen et al. found that Costus Oil showed strong inhibitory activity on the gene expression of hepatitis B surface antigen HBsAg and hepatitis B e antigen HBeAg in human liver cancer cells Hep3B and HepA2, but had little effect on cell survival. This inhibitory effect mainly occurs at the mRNA level in a dose-response manner, with IC50 of 1.0 μM and 2.0 μM, respectively. This result shows that corynelide and dehydrocorylidene may be developed into specific drugs against hepatitis B virus.

Lee et al found that Costus Oil can inhibit the production of NO and reduce the level of TNF-α in the LPS-activated system for LPS-activated mouse macrophage RAW 264.7 and human monocytes. This activity is very good in vitro and in vivo. significantly. The research team further studied its mechanism of action and believed that this compound can inactivate NF-κB, thereby inhibiting the gene expression of i-NOS (inducible NO synthase), and finally leading to the inhibition of NO production. Therefore, woody oil may be a good candidate for the treatment of endotoxin diseases accompanied by excessive production of NO and TNF-α. Wood balm oil against LPS-activated mouse macrophage RAW 264.7, Kang et al. showed the anti-inflammatory activity of wood balm oil. The results showed that the compound could block the activation of MAPK family enzymes (mitogen-activated protein kinase) and the binding of DNA to AP-1, thereby inhibiting the expression of IL-1β protein and mRNA.

Lee et al. first explored the anti-tumor mechanism of Costus Oil. The experimental results showed that woody oil strongly induces apoptosis of cancer cells by inducing ROS (active O) as a transmitter of mitochondrial permeabilization and release of cytochrome C. .

At present, the compound preparations containing Costus Oil are mainly sold in the market, all of which are administered orally, such as Muxiang Shunqi pills, Muxiang betel nut pills, Muxiang Liqi pills, and Liuwei Muxiang capsules.

Because Costus Oil is hydrophobicity, so preparation injection needs a large amount of organic solvents or uses the solubilizing agent of a large amount of toxic side effects, as using surfactants such as polyoxyethylene castor oil (Cremophor-EL), this type of surfactant has Sensitization, a higher incidence of allergic reactions after heavy use.

Preparation of Costus Oil

method one:
Take 1000g of dry woody powder, soak it with 60% ethanol at room temperature, reflux extract three times (3 × 5000ml), each extraction time is 2 hours, combine the filtrate, concentrate the filtrate under reduced pressure to a density of 1.20, add 5 times the volume of Diluted with water and extracted 3 times with ethyl acetate, combined the ester layer, concentrated under reduced pressure to recover the solvent, then put it on a silica gel column (200-300 mesh, 2000g), first washed 3 column volumes with petroleum ether, and continued to use petroleum ether-ethyl acetate Esters (20:1) were eluted for 4 column volumes, the eluate was collected and the solvent was recovered under reduced pressure at 40°C to obtain 35g of Costus Oil, containing 32% of corynelide and 49% of dehydrocorylidene (w/w ).

Method Two:
The dry blocky root product produced in the same year, clean, cut into 2 mm thick slices, take 300 g, put it in a pot, fry until the surface is slightly yellow at 150°C, take it out and let it cool, crush it, pass it through a 20-mesh sieve, Add 3 times the volume of methanol, soak overnight at room temperature, put it into the percolation cylinder, use 10 times the volume of methanol to extract by percolation at 10°C, filter the percolation liquid, recover methanol under reduced pressure to a final volume of about 200 ml, add 700 ml of concentrated solution ml of distilled water to adjust the volume ratio of methanol content to about 20%, extract with ether, 2500 ml×1, dry and filter the extract with anhydrous Na2SO4, distill and concentrate in a hot water bath, condense with ice water, recover ether, until there is still some remaining in the distillation vessel About 100 mL of solution, stop the distillation, take out the residual solution, put it in a fume hood to evaporate the ether, the residue is refined by molecular distillation, the distillation pressure is 0.13 mbar, the scraping speed is 200 r/min, and the feed rate is 1.2 g /min, collect the distillate below 160°C to get Costus Oil.
